1/48 Airfix P-40 Tomahawk II
Here is my first completed build of 2022
The build is basically OOB with the addition of Eduard seatbelts and canopy masks. I also used EZ line for brake lines and added some little retracting arms on the gear doors made from wire. The radio wire is made from EZ line as well.
I wanted to model a aircraft that showed the effects of long hours in the sun without going overboard. "Weathered but restrained" was the effect I was aiming for.
Overall it is a great kit but I did find the fit of the spinner and whole prop assembly to be troublesome.
Enjoy and happy 2022!
