Built pretty much out of the box except for seat belts and TD wheels, this P-40N was a smooth, trouble-free build. After-market decals were used to mark the plane as one flown by the 8th FS Commander Ernie Harris. He scored 10 kills in that Warh[...]
Back again! Here’s another of the kits I’ve been working on little by little over the last couple of months, the Hasegawa 1/72 P-40N. My version is a decent “three footer,” maybe four. While the kit has petite engraved panel lines, the cockpit i[...]
This is 1/32 Hasegawa P-40E Warhawk finished with the markings of “Old Exterminator” flown by Colonel Robert L. Scott in Assam -India during April-May 1942.

My original intent was to have this P-40 completed by the Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7th. I [...]
