1/48 Airfix P-40 Pearl Harbor 75 Years ago 2nd Lt George Welch
Here are some pictures of the build I’ve been scrambling to get finished. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like I’m going to make my deadline that I originally set to have the model completed by. My original plan was to have the plane built by the exact time on the 75th Anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack.
I’m building the new Airfix P-40. I’ve followed Tom Cleaver’s advice and deviated a little from the instructions. Thanks Tom for the building tips in your article about how you built your plane.
I’m hoping that I can finish this one by tonight and post an article about the plane and the pilot George Welch.
Stay tuned. The paint is drying as we speak. This kit is a real gem. The fit is really good and I only needed a little filler in one spot under the radiator chin. This was my fault and not the kits. I was simply in a hurry and caused the problem myself.
If you’re thinking about getting one of these, don’t. Instead get two or three. They are that good !
