    IMO the shark or tiger mouth works on some planes and not on others.

    It sure has been used on many MANY types of planes though aviation history (and on E-Boote/MTBs, trucks, cars you name it).

    As others have mentioned, its sort of iconic to the P-40. In my humble opinion it looks exceedingly well on that plane.

    Though I must admit, that the below fighter doesnt look too shabby with the shark mouth - at least from this angle:
    Agreed, early model 109 though B or C?...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    112 Squadron RAF-first to use the 'sharks mouth' on it's P40s.
    First RAF squadron surely.

    EDIT Just checked; 112 THEN the Flying Tigers.

    In regards to the wreck below:
    On March 24, 1942 The Flying Tigers conducted a bombing raid on the Japanese airbase at Chiang Mai.During the raid pilot William "Black Mac" McGarry's Curtis P40 was hit by ground fire. He attempted to make it back to his base in Burma but was forced to bail out over Thailand. He was captured and turned over to the Japanese. Later he spirited out of Thailand by the Free Thai forces. He was picked up at sea by a by a PBY Catalina. In 1992 the remains of his P40 was found in the jungle of Northern Thailand where it had remained undisturbed for 50 years. It was transported to Chiang Mai and placed in the museum where it is now displayed.

    Something a little more modern, not a shark mouth a "warthog" mouth!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
