1/32 Trumpeter P-40F Warhawk “El Tigre”
Yet another one from the pandemic isolation days. This is 1/32 Trumpeter P-40F Warhawk “El Tigre” (41-14245) tactical code “87” from 66th FS / 57th FG Sicily 1943.
The kit’s top curve of the nose is off, it is not as it needs to be, it has a distinct hump. Thanks God the plastic is thick enough to sand it flatter. So I sanded this area a little. The new shape satisfied me.
I have used Eduard instrument panel and CMK seat in the cockpit.
Exhaust : Eduard resin parts for Hasegawa.
Wheels : Hasegawa s P-40 parts.
Paints: Gunze Sangyo acrylics
Decals : Nose art and El Tigre decals are from Custom Hobby Decals Australia.
