1/48 Pro-Modeler P-40E Warhawk.

July 15, 2016 · in Aviation · · 8 · 2.7K

I believe this kit was a re-pop of a Hasagawa kit, but I could be wrong. Started some time ago but lost interest so it sat for six months. Finally finished her and is another three foot model added to my collection of 's. Not a bad kit, fit and detail was nice and I had no real issues building it. For paint I used Model Master enamels. I did add an Ultracast British seat with Sutton hardness and also used their wheels. Nylon thread depicts the antenna, and used come pastel chalks to dirtier her up a bit. Decals were an AVI Print set depicting a with the 450th Sqn, RAAF in North Africa,1943.
