Here's another selection of the color schemes carried by the Curtiss P-40 Kittyhawk/Warhawk during its extensive service career. All artwork has been kindly contributed by Mr Rick Kent.
In 1939, Curtiss-Writght went about developing a fighter t[...]
I believe this kit was a re-pop of a Hasagawa kit, but I could be wrong. Started some time ago but lost interest so it sat for six months. Finally finished her and is another three foot model added to my collection of P-40's. Not a bad kit, fit [...]
A friend of mine bought me this kit so that the two of us could both build P-40N's (although his was 32 scale). I liked a couple of the Pacific Theater schemes that came in the box - especially the white-tailed version - but as I was doing some[...]
Again this was supposed to be a quick out of the box build but ended up with me spending a lot of time on the model. First of all, I "canvassed in" the wheel wells using coffee filter paper. Then I detailed the cockpit with leftover etch parts[...]
This is my recently finished 1/48 Hasegawa P-40N-5 Warhawk with the markings of “White 21” from 74FS 23rd FG (Kweilin – China). This Warhawk (serial number 42-105009) was flown by Capt. Harylyn S Vidovich. Due to instructions of decal set , Cap[...]

Finally a good Quality kit, its a 1/48 from Hobby Craft, good decals and great fit. I did extensive research to find a version with desert camouflage that has a generous "shark mouth" which I made drawing by hands free, no decals this time. I w[...]
The original Mauve, reboxed by Eduard and released as one of their profi-pak kits. It comes with some very nice resin and PE parts.The resin floor is a problem, however the plastic floor works better and looks just as good. The rest of the kit i[...]
So my grandson and I are at the Lunken Airport open house last spring and we're watching the B-17 Aluminum Overcast giving rides. And wouldn't you know it some of the folks selling souvenirs that day also have some models to sell. I hate when th[...]
By way of introduction to the group, thought I'd load up s few pics of a recent build. I only build 1/72 scale and always mounted in-flight, and I only brush paint (occasional rattle can).
I enjoyed the Academy kit. Although it comes with alt[...]
