Airfix 1:48 P-40B
This completion dates from November 2020. I really enjoyed the build. The kit has very few vices beyond some fit funkiness in the lower nose section. It's completely OOB except for Eduard PE lap belts. I mixed Testors Zinc Chromate and Black for the interior green. Lower camouflage color is MRP Neutral Gray 43. For the OD I mixed MRP OD 41 and Mr. Color C12 to get close to the OD 41 chip in Archer's book. I also mixed red, royal blue and yellow for the maroon rear prop faces; the base metallic color is Alclad Stainless Steel. The radio antenna wires are invisible thread painted with Testors Metalizer Non-buffing Steel. Decals are from the kit except for the black prop stencils (Airfix only provides yellow) which I laid out and laser printed. Markings are for George Welch's plane at Wheeler Field (Pearl Harbor).
