Here is the final product! The completed subject of my P-40 build log in the WIP page. I've been in a toothy mood lately so I used Baracuda Cals representing Col. Scott's aircraft. It's finished with MM Acryls, "faded" with a little yellow for t[...]
I converted this from the Trumpeter kit. I added significant detail to the cockpit and landing gear while also correcting the ESM gear for this updated 'Finback'.
This is one of my rare forays into 1/48th, Strictly OOB. Not even any seatbelts, Finished with the original formula Alclad

The decals (and paint) were a bit on the tedious side, but not a large problem area, just a mild PITA. Other than that, the kit went together famously. I am, nonetheless, having a "senior moment", because I don't remember the manufacturer of th[...]
This one I've build a couple of years ago. Tamiya did a very great job on this one! It was a nice plane to build. Bought the Eduard mask for the canopy, blisters and tailgun parts but it was a PITA. They were thick and peeled of after applying [...]
I finally finished this beast! My first model in... (mental math taking place) about 8 years. I think there are a few more things that could be done to this, but I'm sticking a fork in this one! Enjoy! Feedback is welcome.
