Tomahawk! Curtiss Mk. ii in 1/48
This is AK431, a workhorse from the North Africa campaign, based in Fayid, Egypt in 1943. I was attracted to the P-40’s battered, leaky look - a survivor in a tough environment. Apart from an unfortunate Me-109 I mauled as a 10-year-old, [...]
AMT 1/48 P-40F 'Short Tail"
Thought it was time for Tommy's TomaHawk/WarHawk factory to gear up production again. Also because we all seem to have plenty of time here in Ohio for building kits. Took this old AMT kit and added an aftermarket seat, exhause stacks and [...]

Burma Banshee P-40N,Academy 1/72,Teeth and Fang.
Another P-40, can you stand it! The Academy kit gives you a choice of doing a M or a N version I've done a M once before . I originally intended to use the kit decals but as in the past the Academy decals in this kit gave me trouble, so I [...]

This was my last build for 2019. It is Academy’s 1/72 P-40N. My Niece got this for me Christmas 2018. I wanted to make this special. After months of planning what I wanted to do with it I decided to make it one of the Burma Banshee’s [...]
