The transformation - from this....

With almost everything put back together, the P-40 is headed to Mark Zello's Flying Colors of Texas paint shop in Gainesville.

By the way, Zello's artistry isn't limited to historically significant aircraft and you should take the time to look at his other work:

Great job guys. She looks superb.. can't wait to see her in the air and on the ground in person. Ray, bring her down to Addison, so we can park her next to Ol' 927 for our next Sqdn meeting on Nov 19! Alan Brooks Dep PIO B-29/B-24 Sqdn.

I saw this P-40 N1226N at Air Fiesta in Brownsville, Texas on Feb. 11,2017. First time I saw her was in 1968 at CAF headquarters in Harlingen, Texas. She was all bright red after the CAF bought her in 1965. GREAT MEMORIES for me when I was 13 and now at age 61!
