P-40N combat veteran project (updated) (P-40)

This is a very advanced and extensive P-40N-5 Warhawk restoration project, it consists of virtually all major and hard to get components and is the result of a decade+ of hard work. This rebuild was started alongside another P-40 rebuild that is now almost complete.

To rebuild a P-40 to the stage that this project is currently at in today's dollars would cost in excess of $500,000 USD and be much harder to do as most critical components have been used up.
