AMC 1/72 resin P-40Q
August 30, 2016 in Aviation
This my first and last resin kit, I started this kit about ten years ago, After trimming the fuselage halves and finding how brittle this stuff is and a permanent warp in the fuselage, I shelved it. Since getting more active in modeling, I figured I’d make another attempt. I worked on it in between other builds. Plus who else does a P-40Q. Which was Curtiss’s last attempt at keeping the P-40 line alive. it’s supposed to be the P-40Q 2, There are photo’s of it in olive drab and the shark mouth. The lone example made, it crashed after the war at a air race. I embellished it a little with side markings and yellow wing stripes. I added the last two photos for comparison, P-40M, P-51B.
