Anyway, here she is, Trumpeter's fairly new 1/32 P-40F. I waited a while for a P-40F and greeted the Trumpeter with mixed reviews. Surface d[...]
These are the drawings I made for several "scratch-built" items I made for the 1/32 scale P-40E model. At age 15, (1946) I became a good "Architect" and was drawing house plans for my dad's construction company. All the measurements were type wr[...]
