This is a Hasegawa 1/48 P-400 “Shark Teeth” that I decided to do toothless…it is my approximation or guesstimate, if you will,of a P-39/400(?) in North Africa, 1943. I just finished reading “An Army At Dawn” about the Tunisian campaign, maybe that had something to do with it.
This is not supposed to be any particular real aircraft. I could find very few illustrations to go by and none seemed authoritative, So I used my own paint colors, mostly decals from the kit and some from my leftover decal file, the fuselage letters and nose art (girl from one kit, name “Cleopatra” from another)
Also the first time I used some “Tamiya Weathering Master” stuff I got the first time I ever went to a Hobby Lobby store when I was in the big city a few weeks ago –
Hope you like it half as much as I liked building it.
