Meanwhile back in the north, 1/72 Hasegawa P-40E 18th F.S.,11th A.F. Adak
Actually according to what I read, the 18th F.S. didn’t arrive in the Aleutians with their P-40’s until the late 1942. So technically it’s not part of the group? Anyway this is the old Hasegawa kit build right out of the box, including decals. I did have a problem though, halfway through the build I remembered that I had used the canopy assy. on a MPMs P-40F [replacing it’s vacumformed canopy] I ended up buying Academy’s 1/72 P-40N/M. using the M canopy option. The fit was close enough for me, and besides I now have a P-40N in my stash.
