AMTech 1/48 P-40K/Kittyhawk III

June 30, 2014 in Aviation

This is the AMTech P-40K “big tail” which was essentially the AMT P-40E kit with a resin rear fuselage and fin. I used a True Details P-40E/N cockpit. The decals are from an early Aeromaster sheet.

The airplane is a KittyHawk III flown by 2 Squadron SAAF with the Desert Air Force in North Africa fall 1942-summer 1943.
