1/48 amt p-40f

This is my humble contribution to the P-40 fest. I like these AMT P-40s and think they look really good as long as you close the canopies. I added drop tank shackles from a Hasegawa kit because I wanted to show the clean lines of the Merlin powered P-40 and the kit shackles were hopeless on their own. I painted this one with a Humbrol mix for the desert pink over olive drab on top and used ModelMaster neutral gray underneath. Decals were sourced from the kit and the decal dungeon to replicate an a/c in an old Osprey book about USAAF fighters in the Med.
