Burma Banshee P-40N,Academy 1/72,Teeth and Fang.

March 2, 2020 · in Aviation · · 7 · 2.2K

Another , can you stand it! The kit gives you a choice of doing a M or a N version I've done a M once before . I originally intended to use the kit decals but as in the past the Academy decals in this kit gave me trouble, so I let it sit without markings, that is until I saw David Kopielski's great build of this kit, using Rising decals Burma Banshees sheet, thanks for the inspiration, David. I quickly ordered a set, I chose White 61 of the 89th FS,80th FG. India,1944. Which appears to have a mixed set of cowl panels. Rattle can paint as usual.

  1. Well done! That's a unique set of teeth, and looks darn intimidating. Love the profile shot.

  2. Another lovely P-40, what's not to like.

    A P-40 is always a welcomed sight and this one is no exception, thanks for sharing Robert.

  4. Nice work and great subject, Robert. Every one of those skull painted P-40s was noticeably different.

  5. Looks good, especially the "sunlight" shots. Well done.

  6. Nice work! Glad I could inspire you! One can never have enough P-40's. And the Burma Banshee's had the unique nose art.
