That's real?    If yes, why the longer nose over the P-36?

Because it's not a P-36, it's a Hawk 81A-1 airframe with the V-1710 replaced with an 1100hp  P&W R-1830-SSC7-G
with two-stage supercharger.

What was going through my mind was CG issues.   

Now to put that machine in proper Soumi colors.

Hmmm, what about the Polish Government ordering some P-36s and even possibly some P-40s before the war broke out.  Might make for an interesting addition...

Thanks Greg. I have some spare P-36s and P-40Bs in the stash.

Does anyone have some Polish decals they would be willing to part with/trade?

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

I can see the Russians reverse engineering the P-40 and then jetting it.  North Korean markings perhaps?

Thanks, I cobbled that together about 10 years ago just to see if it could be done. I've got the intent to do a much more refined one at some point with a few changes.

Maybe it's just me, but I think a jet version of the P-40L or P-40N would look good with that engine set up.  Most certainly it would not interfere with the main gear the way a similar installation would do with, say, the P-51.
