This is my presentation of the Trumpeter 1/32 P-40B, finished as a Hawaiian bird.
The model was a contribution to Louis Gardner's and the small team of great friends' idea to build subjects relative to the so important [...]
Here is my first completed build of 2022
It is the new tool Airfix 1/48 Tomahawk II
The build is basically OOB with the addition of Eduard seatbelts and canopy masks. I also used EZ line for brake lines and added some little retracting [...]
The scene from the movie Tora Tora Tora, when two pilots jump into their P-40s and, regardless of the glaring disproportion of forces in the air, rush to Attack the Japanese formation as a young boy from school, I was simply moved. What [...]
This completion dates from November 2020. I really enjoyed the build. The kit has very few vices beyond some fit funkiness in the lower nose section. It's completely OOB except for Eduard PE lap belts. I mixed Testors Zinc Chromate and [...]

Whilst working at my usual glacial pace on another build I decided on Monday to see how quickly I could complete a kit using enamels.
This is the result. I have just spent the last two hours trying for the life of me to get the [...]
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, [...]
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 [...]
