Meanwhile back in the north, 1/72 Hasegawa P-40E 18th F.S.,11th A.F. Adak

by Robert Royes on June 5, 2017 in Aviation -- 6 Comments

Actually according to what I read, the 18th F.S. didn’t arrive in the Aleutians with their P-40’s until the late 1942. So technically it’s not part of the group? Anyway this is the old Hasegawa kit build right out of […]

After having had a look at what is in the box in part 1 (http://imodeler.com/2017/03/airfix-148th-p-40b-warhawk-build-review-part-1/), it is time to actually start building this thing. And we all know how this goes, right? Construction starts with the cockpit… You don’t say. […]

Previously… There have been a couple of attempts at the early P-40 in 48th scale over the years. The old Monogram kit and the Academy one have been around for quite some time. More recent offerings from Trumpeter and Bronco […]

1/48 P-40N

by John Healy on February 23, 2017 in Aviation -- 17 Comments

This is the old AMT kit from the mid 1990s. All of the AMT P-40s are still solid kits. Each seperate version also has its issues. The cockpits are weak, but the canopies build up well in the closed position. […]

by John Healy on February 23, 2017 in Aviation -- 18 Comments

This is the latest, and greatest P-40 kit. The brand new Airfix P-40B! What’s not to like about this one? I built it out of the box including using the excellent decals provided for Lt. Welch’s Pearl Harbor a/c. I […]

Hasegawa 1/48 P-40E Kittyhawk….

by Stan Traas on February 12, 2017 in Aviation -- 27 Comments

Well, good people keep trying to drag me from the dark side to the light….. and I always resist. Except for this time- A good kop (whose favorite A/C is the P-40) dared/cajoled me into doing a Kittyhawk. Credit for […]

Desert Warhawk – Curtiss P-40K in Tunisia 1943

by Miha Kosi on January 10, 2017 in Aviation -- 10 Comments

Yes, I am terribly fond of desert dioramas. They are so colorful. And I have always been especially intrigued by “pink” Warhawks in North Africa. What an unusual color, and a great challenge for a modeler. I was helped a […]

Well here it’s finally finished. This one is hot off the work bench, and I doubt the paint has completely dried………… My original intent was to have this P-40 completed by the Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor on […]
