Another addition to my Warhawk collection. I advise preparing yourself for a dozen more p-40s in scale 🙂
This is 1/32 P-40N 1 “Dikam Death” from 88th FS 80th FG Burma Banshees.
Cockpit modified with Eduard instrument panel and seatbelts.
I have added Eduard Exhaust set

Happy modelling

  1. A beautiful build to add to your collection, Tolga @tolgaul
    Your modelling expertise is clearly shown on this one.
    Great detailing and painting.

  2. Another totally gorgeous P-40 from Tolga. How many have you done?

  3. Very well done! Stunning work!

  4. Another beauty! Well done, Tolga

  5. Another Tolga masterpiece!

  6. Great Skull job. Very interesting set of markings. The checkerboard on only one wing tip? And a flash under the nose too. Your paintwork is superb, kudos.

  7. Thanks Bill
    Yes probably one of the wing tips ( right or left) swapped from another one.

  8. Great work, Tolga (@tolgaul). The P-40 is one of my favorites, and your paint scheme is perfect. I would bet the getting the skull decal in place was fun! Looking forward to your next P-40s.

  9. Tolga,

    Finding 1/32nd Hasegawa P-40s other than the model E is a big deal in some circles. Its like finding hens teeth.
    You must have cornered the market at the right time.

    Your style of modeling is to be envied. Or its becoming a school in and of itself. Definitely, a excellent reference for other modelers.

    Two thumbs up.

    • Thanks a lot Stephen @stephen-w-towle

      It's nearly impossible to find Hasegawa's 1/32 M and N these days. The prices you can find are also not reasonable at all.

      Yes, 4-5 years ago, I bought some K,M and N what I could find at affordable prices . Now it's time to build them stress-free

      On the other hand, I heard some rumors that the Hobby 2000 has bought the P-40 molds from Hasegawa and will release the Ms first. I hope this happens.

  10. Nice work, Tolga!

  11. What can I say? another Tolga masterpiece!

  12. Fantastic ,your work is always outstanding. Well done Tolga.

  13. Nice! I think that the scull nose is the meanest looking scheme for P-40's.

  14. Very nice model, Tolga.

  15. Another beauty! I'm finishing up 2 P-40's now - they are definitely one of my favorite US WWII airframes!
