So, I have a question....

 They put the "A10 Warthog" fangs on the Goblin and got it right. Why can't they get the "Shark Mouth" on the P40 and the P51's right?????

Yes, I spent the doe,ray, me on the Goblin.......it's not too bad actually.......:hiding:




I've knocked on death's door.....no one answered.....I don't complain much anymore.

Me.

Thanks trikke, I'm slowly getting back into the hang of things. Thought I'd try this for the price, lord knows I've spent way more on this game. It's actually pretty good, until they nerf it in the next patch, that is.......:sceptic:

That they have not git the shark's mouth right on the P40 has always bugged me. You would think at least the Flying Tigers model would have it right. But nooo.

Tomahawk IIb is the Flying Tigers plane and yes it has the right shark mouth

Yes I bought the little bugger too, Got a kick of setting things on fire with the HE-I belts. Used to use them all the time in the first iteration, but sold them all off. Could not get the win for the gold reserves or the 5X, but overall it is a bad little. Gave me a taste of what tier IX will be like but right now I am working on clearing the Tier VII planes in each nation.

It's not quite right. Eye is lower and mouth is straight

might be a copyright issue?

 

P-40 lobbyists have attorneys who are actual RL sharks...

This could indeed be a copyright issue but we will be glad to get more info.

This has bothered me too. It's not all the P-40 models that are wrong, just select ones; but it's brutally wrong when it's wrong in the game.

Example of cringeworthy bad: 

And honestly, if you're going to miss the mark, at least go full throttle on it because this doopy sharkmouth is probably my favorite thing in game: 

 

 

Then of course the AVG/Chinese Air Force model of the P-40 gets it right:

 

Really though, the most important thing to remember is that as much as we have the "ideal Flying Tigers' shark mouth" in mind after decades of seeing it printed on posters, toys, models, and everything in between; there really were no two that were identical because they were all hand-painted in theater, so there were some variations as you can see here:

 

Okay...rant over.

Hope to catch y'all in the skies!
