SO3E SEAHAWK 1/48th Czech Model
I started with a 1/48th scale Czech Model Curtiss SO3C Seamew S.O.B. (Straight Out of Box) then thought Hmmm What If…
The Warhawk nose came from my own “Davis Monthan bone yard” Otaki Curtiss P-40-E Warhawk.
I hacksawed off the V-770 and the V-1710. I didn’t have to do much for the conversion. A little filing and sanding was all it took the rest was S.O.B.
The Dark Sea Blue came from a Model Masters rattle can. The decals came from various kits. I still might add depth charges or drop tanks in the future.
