Ceeping it Cobra-my kid’s P-400

June 26, 2013 · in Aviation · · 4 · 1.4K

Built a couple years ago, by my son Kyle. 's nice 1/48 offering. an early New Guinea warrior. The P-400 being the designation for the British "reposessed" 's. The adoring pilots of these called them a "P-40 with a Zero on it's tail." Things would improve. I dunno, but I think Hasegawa has the winner.

  1. Once again, Kyle stomps everyone's guts out with another immaculate build and perfect finish. Highly competent decal work demonstrated on this one and the paint work- color choices, consistent feathering, and subtle shading- is very fetching.

  2. Training-it's all training. 🙂

    • Hmmmm... I coulda sworn I posted this comment yesterday... guess it didn't stick for some reason. In any event, I'm thinking it's genetic- the apple fell close to the tree here. And by that I don't mean to diminish the abilities of the apple. Kyle, you are a talented modeler in your own right and giving your pops a run for the money. Very, very nice work!
