The AMTech (ex-AMT) P-40F with the resin corrected nose AMTech provided in their kit to fix the wrong nose the kit had. I don't remember whose resin cockpit this is, but the decals were by Aeromaster. The scheme is the "early desert scheme" of[...]
This is the Mauve P-40M kit with the Aeromaster resin P-40F/L nose and Aeromaster decals to do "Ace of Pearls" of the 99th Fighter Squadron (Tuskeegee Airmen) when the squadron was attached to the 79th Fighter Squadron i in Italy in early 1944. [...]
Hasegawa P-40N in the markings of "Island Dream" of the 7th Squadron, 49th Fighter Group, 1944.
The model is essentially OOB other than the aftermarket Aeromaster decals and the use of a vacuformed sliding canopy, so it doesn't sit "on top" of [...]
I decided to write this one a little more in-depth than my previous posts. Not a full-blown review by any means, but just a little more “color.” I hope this is an improvement over my previous few posts!
Here is Hasegawa’s 1/48 P-40N. This pro[...]
Like a certain red triplane, a shark nosed P-40 is a must have in my collection. It is one of my favorite fighter planes and it was my choice for my very first published kit in the www ! The chosen place was Aeroscale, but uploading pictures was[...]

This aircraft is from the 343rd FG, 11th FS in the Aleutians 1942. I thought this was different in that there were no blue surrounds on the national insignia. I g[...]
Finished yesterday; this is Hasegawa's 1/32 scale P-40M kit, built as a Kittyhawk Mk. III serving with 112 Sqn. RAF in Italy. Essentially OOB except for seat belts, aerial wire & hydraulic lines. Thanks to Tom Cleaver for a heads up on a cou[...]
Just a few desert camo RAF aircraft. All oob builds, the Legato P-40 kit was hard work but turned out ok and has a good shape, the Tamiya kit as usual was a dream and the keenly priced Revell kit fitted together really well, happy enough with th[...]
God of Research Dana Bell presents the most detailed and useful book about the early P-40 - the P-40, P-40B and P-40C - available for modelers. And just in time! If I told you more I'd have to shoot you, but in the foreseeable future modeler[...]
Hello out there,
New around here so I thought I might post some of my work. This particular kit was built around the time I returned to the hobby so I learned quite a bit. As I recall the fit was tough in places. The fuselage is molded in four p[...]
