I will take some artistic license. This is the Revell 1/32 P-39, but I am painting it as ‘Nanette’, the one flow by Edwards Park. He wrote Nanette and Angels Twenty (which I just got a copy of after years of searching). No photographs exits of Nanette. Park describes her as a “breathtakingly beautiful, grey/green/brown…”. I have sourced decals for the number 74 – Nanette’s number, but am winging it on the camo pattern, as photography of other P-39s in this scheme show a lot of variation. This seems especially true of P-39s that had been out in New Guinea for any length of time.
