  1. Another Tolga masterpiece!
    A truly superb build!

  2. Speechless result, Tolga @tolgaul
    Painting, weathering everything looks great.

  3. Everything is great - a typical Tolga Masterpiece!

  4. Great model! What shade of Sand Paint did you use?

  5. Beautyous! Love the plane and it's colors.

  6. The build is a masterpiece as usual, but given the scheme, I think your photography and choice of background colors is a clever use of color. Thanks for sharing! ?

  7. Good to see a P-40 with out the sharks mouth, the Curtiss fighter fought on many fronts and with several air forces in many theaters. The cowling lends its self to some good art work too. I always like your palette Tolga.
    You've adjusted it to one, meet the needs of the camera, two it looks good in natural light. The fading of paint is what the 1 to 1 aircraft looks like on the tarmac. Three, the dirt and grime doesn't distract from the build and is relevant to the build and shows wear and tear.

    What a Holiday treat and worthy of taking the time to not look at a build but, see it and all of its details.

    Two thumbs up.

  8. Very nice, Tolga. Excellent paintwork.

  9. One fine looking P-40! Well done.

  10. Wow, this is a beautifully done model kit. Your P-40 looks great! It also looks very real to my eyes.

  11. A real inspiration! I'm working on two P-40's now - an N and a K - and love this! Paint palette is fantastic as always.
