1/48 Hasegawa P-40K
John Hampshire’s P-40K of the 23rd Fighter Group, aka Flying Tigers. The kit is the Hasegawa P-40K with Eduard color etch and Baracuda Cals Decals. The kit was a pleasure to build and presented no major issues as long as you’re careful with the modular construction. I like to try new techniques with each build and after seeing a beautiful oil streaking job on a 1/32 Tamiya Spitfire at BUFCON in Buffalo, NY that was my goal. The Warhawk was finished with Model Master Acrylics and Windsor Newton Airtist Oils for the oil streaking. I prefer Floquil Flat Finish tinted with a drop or two of tan to bring everything together. I’ve got a P-40E I’m looking forward to starting and i’m considering doing a build log in the Works in Progress section, any thoughts?
