Thanks for the suggestion.
Actually I have had a P-36 / Hawk 75 project going for a couple years now.
From my line of reasoning, after I had the first P-40E (the current "Warhawk" project), I thought there would not be too many changes to get to a P-40C.
It turned out to a LOT of changes to get to a P-40C "Hawk 81" project. (Fewer though than my current revisions to the Warhawk.)
From the Hawk 81, it should have been "easy" to get to a Hawk 75 since everyone KNOWS the P-40 was just a P-36 with a new engine. Turns out that there aren't that many shared pieces between the two. Although the general construction is the same, everything was moved around a bit to put the Allison inline in place. The prototype P-37 and P-40 might have been simple engine swaps, but...
