1:48 Hasegawa P-40K-5CU
February 26, 2013 in Aviation
Hey folks, my first post here. Kit is the 1:48 scale Hasegawa P-40K “Warhawk”. Model is built pretty much out of the box with the exception of the resin wheels from True Details and the wire brake lines….not really OOB now is it?
I used a combination of decals from the scrap box, most are Aeromaster with a few from the kit added too.
I painted her with Model Master Enamels. Fading was done by changing the hue of the base color by adding a touch of light grey, one or two drops at a time, and masking off panels indiscriminately.
Weathering was through thinned oils and pastel chalk, while the antenna are nylon thread.
Nice to break the ice and I look forward to posting more here. Thanks!!!
