1/32 Hasegawa P-40 E Warhawk “Old Exterminator”
This is 1/32 Hasegawa P-40E Warhawk finished with the markings of “Old Exterminator” flown by Colonel Robert L. Scott in Assam -India during April-May 1942.
The name “Old Exterminator”was not painted on the aircraft.Scott refered to the machine by this appellation following a particularly successful strafing mission against Japanese Infantry on the Burma Road , 9 May 1942. Note that no serial displayed on the tail.
Cokcpit modified by Eduard instrument panel and seat belts.
Other modifications are:
– Quickboost exhausts
– Master Detail gunsight
Painting was done with Gunze acrylics.
I have used SuperScale Int. P-40 Warhawks MS320247 decal set. Decals are extremely excellents.
Decals applied due to the decal set guide. During the final finishing touches I realised that “U.S. ARMY” decals were too far forward on the wing. The reason is the mistake on decal sheet guide.
It was too late to fix it. Well I have to accept it as it is.
