Canadian Tomahawk, 1/48 Airfix
Have been modeling for 30 years and this is the first P-40 I have built. Not sure why, as I have always been a big fan since I saw “The Flying Tigers” as a kid. Really enjoyed building this kit, and it is one of Airfix’s better efforts. It is finished in DuPont equivalent RAF dark green, dark earth, and a very grayish Sky. Port wing is black. Paints are Tamiya custom mixes that I found somewhere online. This is a RCAF 403 sq. aircraft, May, 1941. Decals are Iliad Design. Sad to say this is probably the last plastic model kit I will build. Making some lifestyle changes, and modeling is one of the things I am giving up. Will still be checking out everybody’s work here! Best to all!
