1/48 AMT P-40E
September 7, 2015 in Aviation
Been stuck on building P-40’s lately and just had to finish this one. Only problem was no canopy in the box. Another modeller from this site offer one up and presto we have a Lend Lease P-40E.. The A/C depicted was flown by P. A. Pokryshev, a Hero of the Soviet Union, Leningradsky Front, 154th IAP. I used AVI Print for the decals.
The underside was hand bushed in duck egg blue acrylic, the brown was rattle can Model Master light earth, and the Model Master dark green was airbrushed .I enjoy doing all techniques. I added an Ultracast seat, and some True Detail wheels to help her along. Some pastel chalks was used to dirty her up a bit and I fashioned a small spring to hold the nylon antenna wires. Fun build. I want to mention that though I don’t comment on all the models posted I must state there has been some incredible work displayed lately and I have thoroughly enjoyed the views. Really admire some of the excellent modellers that use this site, really fine folks for sure.
