P-40M. 1/48 scale. I think this is one of the meaner looking mouths. 112 Squadron, Italy 1943.Resin seat and wheels added. Pilot from old Tamiya Buffalo kit.

  1. Absolutely beautiful P-40! Those British desert camo schemes make PO-40s look their best IMHO. Panel lines, weathering, cockpit and decals all look top notch. And it's even in the right scale for a change! 😉

  2. Great model Bill. Nice and realistic.

  3. Great job Bill! That's a fine lookin' P-40!

  4. Great P-40!
    I love aircrafts of this squadrons.

  5. Where do you get these little figures at? I've been looking everywhere, I want to pick some up for some of my planes!

    • Like it sez up yonder, this figure is from the old Tamiya Brewster Buffalo. Hasegawa, ICM, and Eduard have pilot/groundcrew sets of varying quality. There is still a need for good WW2 pilot crew figures in ACTIVE poses. Try getting anything good in 1/32, it's even tougher.
