Hobbycraft 1/48 P-40 L/M
April 4, 2016 in Aviation
Again this was supposed to be a quick out of the box build but ended up with me spending a lot of time on the model. First of all, I “canvassed in” the wheel wells using coffee filter paper. Then I detailed the cockpit with leftover etch parts from other builds. Paint is Model Master with Polly Scale flat as an overcoat. Weathering was with pencil and a Tamiya weathering kit-nice stuff by the way. If you remember, this is the old AMT/ERTL/Italeri kit that’s been around for a while. It’s not a bad kit but not a contest winner either. The fit is just not that good and I spent a lot of time working on getting that done as well as possible.
The machine guns were drilled out and very small hypo tubing used to replace the molded parts. Hope you like her. Clark
