Being a veteran of two Monogram P-40s, one by Trumpeter & another by Academy, I really looked forward to the Airfix offering. There were few issues & none that couldn’t be corrected easily, although the spinner nearly defeated me – […]

1/48 P-40N

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. […]

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 […]

Due to the recent P-40 profile posting I dusted one off. This one was built back when the Hasegawa 1/48 “Special edition” K came out. It’s been shelf sitting with it’s 49er groupmates and has come out for a flight. […]

1/48 Pro-Modeler P-40E Warhawk.

I believe this kit was a re-pop of a Hasagawa kit, but I could be wrong. Started some time ago but lost interest so it sat for six months. Finally finished her and is another three foot model added to […]

Hasegawa 1/72 P-40N – Desert Scheme

by Greg Kittinger on July 13, 2016 in Aviation -- 15 Comments

A friend of mine bought me this kit so that the two of us could both build P-40N’s (although his was 32 scale). I liked a couple of the Pacific Theater schemes that came in the box – especially the […]

Hobbycraft 1/48 P-40 L/M

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 […]
