AMT 1/48 P-40N “Rosie the Riviter”

Rosie is my entrance into the Teeth and Fangs GB here on iModeler. This A/C flew with the 49th Fighter Group, 7th Fighter squadron, and that's all the information I could find concerning this P-40. I did locate a single B/W photo of the original[...]

This aircraft was flown by Pilot Officer Robert W. "Buck" McNair D.S.O., D.F.C (2 Bars)(RCAF). No. 249 (Gold Coast) Sqn. at Ta' Qali, Malta, Mar. 1942. This is the newest Airfix boxing with all the issues that everyone else has posted about: f[...]

M3 lee

Just arrived on my front porch

Just arrived. Tore into it like a ravening wolf. A more detailed review will be up at M2 next week. But right off, the surface detail is amazing, more petite even than the recent Fw-190 and Tempest, if such is possible. For those who say "yeah,[...]
