 P-40E's in the AVG, What P-40E's were flown? (5 Replies, Read 6034 times)

Hi all. I am building a model P-40E and would like it to have AVG markings and not 23rd fighter group markings. I know the bulk of P-40s in use by the AVG were B's and C's but I found online that about 33 E models made it to the group before they converted over to the 23rd Fighter group. These airframe numbers were supposedly 101-134.
I was looking to build this to be Boyington's plane (however he flew a B model number 21). I have some flexibility with the kit though. It has decals for 1st Squadron Adam and Eve, so I can build any E variant assigned to that squadron. I have so far found a pic of just one E variant in that squadron: Airframe 125. Do we know what pilots flew what aircraft? What aircraft were assigned to what squadron? What all Boyington flew before he left in April 42? Could he have also flown a newly acquired E?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
- Jim
