Here is my first attempt at doing a repaint. It depicts Joe Moore's P-40B in the Philippines in 1941. He was one of just three pilots of the 20th Pursuit Squadron to get airborne from Clark Field on December 8th, 1941 when the Japanese sent multiple waves against the airfield. The rest of the squadron was bombed and strafed literally seconds before being able to takeoff. Although most squadrons in the island chain had upgraded to P-40Es by the start of the war, the 20th PS was still operating the B model which it had been flying since the mid summer after transitioning from P-35s.

Comments and criticisms are much appreciated. Basically just added the number 41 to the plane as the Philippine planes were rather simple liveries. The planes in that weather were the victims of much weathering thanks in part to their water-based paints.
