Academy 1/72 P-40
By way of introduction to the group, thought I’d load up s few pics of a recent build. I only build 1/72 scale and always mounted in-flight, and I only brush paint (occasional rattle can).
I enjoyed the Academy kit. Although it comes with alternative parts to build retracted wheels, it was a better fit and more realistic to modify the “wheels down” parts. This is a constant issue for folks like me who like to build them in-flight, as often the gear doors (and other gear when exposed during flight) don’t fit as well as they should.
Happy to begin contributing to the site – I just found it today and really appreciate all the talent on display!
