Hasegawa 1/48 Curtiss P-40K Warhawk Soviet Airforce/VVS
And another one finshed.
Hasegawa kit with Authentic Decals, AK Real Color AMT-7 and AMT-11, EZ Line for antenna wires and brake lines, Eduard seatbelts
The model shows an aircraft of the 760th fighter regiment, 261st composite division in Karelia winter 1943-44.
Superb results. Weathering not overstated but complete with the worn look. That's typically what I aim for, perhaps why I like it so much! Also, a different sort of "flying tiger". 🙂
Is the IP painted? Looks great!
Thank you! Used the kit decals for the instruments.
Very nice indeed, sober but with all the right ingredients to make it interesting to behold. I have read that Hasegawa P-40 had some sort of deadly fault in its shape, but my inexperienced P-40 eye, they look the part.
One question about the decals if I may, any problems with colour/sharpness or applying them?
Thanks a lot! The decals looked and worked ok, no problems. Only thing is they are thin and you have to be careful, tend to wrap
Very nice finish and unusual markings.
That's a fine looking P-40K Reinhard. I'm especially fond of P-40's and you have done an excellent job on this one. I like it.
Well done, Reinhard, the weathering is just perfect. Bravo!
A real beauty - love the weathering, especially the exhaust staining.
Great looking model and love the markings
