    Due to poorly matching assembly and not accurately looking parts of the air intake section I decided to use "Department of Correction" Seamless Air intake set .
    Parts have been cut off from their casting blocks. Front area of the Hasegawa fuselage has been prepered for the air intake installation.

    A lot of nice interior detailing, Tolga. Trumpeter is bringing out an 'N' in 1/32 later this year, which should be interesting.

    Fuselage parts glued. It needs some putty and sanding process on the fuselage due to multi part design.
    Lower wing section is ready for installation after attaching wheel bay.

    Good start Tolga, always interesting in following your progress, checking on your techniques and style and your approach to the build. Also gives an idea on the layout on this particular kit as I have the P-40E, which most likely very similar in how it assembles. What I was concerned was the multi piece fuselage. More seams to fill, alignment issues, etc, you seem to have a handle on that part so far. Thanks for sharing, will continue viewing, how is the B-26 coming along?

    Hi Bernard
    The scheme will be "White 21" from 74FS 23rd FG (Kweilin - China)

    Nice work Tolga! I have a couple of these in the stash and am hoping to start them soon. Looking for any tips about assembling the dreaded fuselage.
    Interesting to see that White 21 in the photo has the older style 'large' wheels as opposed to the smaller/later wheels, seen on the next P 40 in line as normally fitted to the P40N.
    Many thanks for the photos. I am studying them with interest !

    Tolga, your choice has it all, sharkmouth, and the "rode hard, left outside to dry" look the CATF and the AVG had.
