Academy 1/72 P-40M

This is my 1/72 Academy P-40M with Finnish Air Force markings that I completed a couple of months ago. This is a nice kit that can be made as either a M or N versions of the P-40. There are a few things that I felt needed some attention: the hei[...]

Smer 1/72 P-40k

This is SMER's P-40K, I started this build while still working on my first build last year (Revell P-40E) hoping to have a quick build but that did not happen. This kit fought me a bit but this was probably more me than the kit. The wing to body[...]

The old Revell 1/72 P-40E

This is my first writing on this site so I decided to show my first build in 30 years of not building a kit...build it for a FB Revell GB that ended this past April, 2020. It was fun, I tried to make this old dog do some new tricks. This is the [...]

Welchome to my P-40B Show n’ Tell.

The names Welch, Taylor, Brown, Rasmussen and Sanders are names commonly known as "the five that got up" on 7 December. What can be lesser known is the details of their aircraft. P-40B "160" is generally regarded as the mount of George Welch, th[...]

AMTECH P-40L-5, Long tail

Decal Silvering

Back in the early 1980's I just cut out the decals and put them in water, then slid them onto the model. A decade or more later I started cutting around each number/letter, including the insides of the letter "O"/"P"/"A" etc. The first photo is [...]

Hi all, Following the information received on a forum concerning the camouflage of the P-40 N with the serial number corresponding to mine (Presence of green spots on the wings and horizontal control surfaces), I reviewed my camouflage. I also f[...]

1/48 Seversky P-35A.

This is the recent Wolfpack re-issue of the Hobbycraft kit. While it is old, the basic plastic is pretty nice with a few accuracy issues. I remember building the HC P-35 around 1995 and enjoying it, so I thought I’d give this one a go. Wolfpa[...]

RIP My friend Tom Doll, fellow airplane nut and writer

Just heard that Tom Doll has made his last rolling takeoff from the flight deck, headed west. Tom was an amazing writer, a real lover of naval aviation (go google him at Amazon and see all the books he wrote that you've read at one time or anot[...]
