A snippet about the first RAAF P-40M, SV-G "NOELA" (A29-342, although I believe this code isn't visible in any photos, so may well have either not been applied or, more likely, was overpainted at some stage). This excellent reference has a close-up of the kangaroo and bombs noseart. The quote "Semper in Excreta" translates as "Always in the Sh*t". Something tells me that the pilot may not have been in the same Latin class as Sir Humphrey Appleby ... :P

Brilliant story! I did not realised the meaning of this translation :mrgreen:, thank you smeg1959!
Also, thank you for the link - this would be the first update of the SO3144065 set in the future - an early version of Noela: Daisy Noela with 'G' letter underneath of the air scoop.

Meanwhile, the first three decal sets are available in our webstore:
TSR-2 - SO3144059
RAAF P-40M/Ns Vol.1 - SO3144065
RAAF P-40M/Ns Vol.2- SO3144066

The rest of the news will follow soon.

Stay tuned, Marek

OMG, just visited the P-40 pages and I'm in Hog's Heaven ... or should that be 'Hawk's Heaven? Order placed. The sole AFV Club P-40M available locally arrived in the mail earlier in the week, so I might start it with the view to adding your decals to it later. Definite 1944 fodder.

OK, the next three decal sets are available in our webstore:

Brazilian Silver F-40M/Ns - SO3144048
USAF and ANG F-47Ds Vol.2 - SO3144049
Polish AF MiG-15s (S-102, Lim-1, Lim-2) - SO3144077

There are three more new decal sets (Cold War jets) in the pipeline but I think they will be released sometime this summer.

All the best!
