1/32 Curtiss P-40

This is my newly completed Curtiss P-40 Tomahawk. It is the Hobby Craft / Trumpeter kit. My first completed model for 2024. While researching this project online , I read many negative reviews of this kit because of various [...]

Airfix 1/72 H81-A2/P-40B

Here is Airfix's 1/72nd scale Flying Tigers Curtiss H81-A2 (P-40B) . I really like Airfix's newer 1/72nd scale kits. Some modelers complain about the heavy pannel lines but once the kit is premed and painted they really get toned down to a [...]

Curtis Hawk 81

A nice little Flying Tiger from Airfix. The soft plastic made the removal of the small bits from the tree a bit tricky. But with extra care I had no mishaps. On the other hand, as careful as I tried to be, I still ended up breaking off two [...]

Monogram 1/48 P-40B Warhawk

Conceived as a pursuit aircraft, the P-40B was agile at low and medium altitudes but suffered from a lack of power at higher altitudes. At medium and high speeds it was one of the tightest-turning early monoplane designs of the war and it [...]

GWH's 1/32 Curtis Hawk 81 A2 Flying Tiger

Hell´s Angels…1/48 Curtiss Tomahawk Mk.IIb, American Volunteer Group

Built over 6 years ago. The "infamous" 1/48 Trumpeter kit..lol At first my dad wanted to do a RAF North Africa a/c but during the build he decided that it should be a Flying Tiger. Found a nice scheme in Kagero´s P-40 Vol.I, the [...]

Eye of the Tiger

I know…here we go again, here comes another stinking P-40, and a “Flying Tiger” one at that. But…Please bear with me. When I was a kid in the 1950’s, the “Flying Tigers”…the pilots of Claire Chennaults’s American [...]

Classic Monogram warbirds

The Curtis P-40B and the Mitsubishi A6M5 Type 0 in 1/48 scale. Both of these were built at least 20 years ago but I only got them out to the airport last year for a photo session. Both reveal my limitations as a model builder back then, [...]
