Pre May 1942 P-40 decals

Anybody have a spare set of 1/48 pre May 42 US national markings for a P-40C? Working on a 33 PS bird in Iceland in 41. Using Airfix’s A05130 kit which has markings for 15th PG at Wheeler Field on Dec. 7, 1941. Made the mistake of reading the directions! :face_with_symbols_over_mouth: Used location of markings shown on the instructions. Appears that Hawaii based P-40s had their OWN rules. The national marking is further back on the fuselage (because of the big white ID number) than the REST of the USAAC! (Katonks!) Now they ae in the wrong place for a “normal” P-40. Decals from the Airfix kit would be great. Thanks .

Hey, I have airfix A05130. I plan on doing mine in the flying tigers scheme so I don’t think I need the national insignia. Check out this link and let me know if they’ll work:

Yup… That’s them. I have the same kit. I’ll PM my address.
