      @Bob: Not at all! We always welcome feedback like this. Of course, Flying Tiger is still a work in progress. The plane was only a quick sketch and it will get refined as we progress further.

      Just to pick up on the previous comment. The P-40 has a distinct profile, with the radiator below the propellor. The current preview has the radiator wrapped around the propellor, like the Griffon engine on the Avro Shackleton. This has also meant that the whole nose is too shallow and pointed.
      Hopefully this will be improved as the model is refined. The exhausts and cockpit canopy have a little way to go, too.
      Don't mind me butting-in, obviously the focus is on the girl, but the aircraft catches the eye of an aviation fan and the sooner these issues are caught, the better.

      That is definitely a nice looking model!

      It is actually based on P-40. Though we would not sculpt the face detail onto the plane to give freedom for painters to paint it.

      My only suggestion, the plane should look more like a P-40.
