AMT 1/48 P-40k
Oh no, not another P-40 Tom! Yep this happens to be number 19 in my collection with five more build able kits in the stash. Had been looking for a P-40K for some time now so I could build this colorful version flown by Lt R. Johnson Overcash with the 64th FS, 57th FG based at Hani Main, Tunisia. Hopefully I’ll find the 1/48 Hasegawa P-40K version someday as I have additional decals for another K Model.
AMT kits are not bad considering how dated they are, with a little care you can still build a nice model from them., To achieve a K Model you basically cut off the tail of a P-40E and attach the K Model tail. I added an Ultracast seat, exhause stacks, plus the wheels from a Hasegawa P-40 E kit to jazz her up a bit. Used Tamiya Light Sand paint for the top and Neutral gray for the bottom. Decals are from Strike Eagle and nylon thread was used for the antenna wire. Between work and honey do projects I built her in a week.
