A very nice Warhawk and a beautiful flightline.
One of my favorite WWII fighters.
What Bernd said. 🙂 Love it. Go the RAAF.
Looks like one of the "modifications" was the insertion of a brass tube and mount in order to get the prop to spin. Am I right...?
Seems to me there would have been an 'easier' solution (of course, I could be dead wrong in my assumption).
There could be an easier way, but this is how I like to do it, not so much to have it spin but removable for maintenance and strong !
Great build sir.
Very nice - I too love the Warhawk - have two built and a third in the stash (same kit you just built). I'm sure I'll add more as I go... I like the diversity of your Warhawk line-up so far!
Beautiful and silky smooth painted P-40. Very nice in small 1/72 scale. Rotating propellers are an obsession for me, as well as shark's teeth on P-40. One small Kittyhawk is waiting me in my stash ...
