  1. Thank you very much for your reaction gingerbob! You are absolutely right about the "sit" of the sliding part of the canopy. A vacuform canopy would have been far better and realistic.. I think it will be something I do for my next Hasegawa P-40. And for what about the little notches of the canopy, I never ever noticed that the "N' doesn't have them. Thanks for clearing that up! Also I noticed, after finishing the model.., that are some things on this kit which are just right for a proper "N" model.. Erik
  2. Hi Guys, Here is my Dutch defender of the overseas colonies. in 1944 one Dutch squadron with P-40N's was based on Merauke(later Biak)in New Guinea under Australian command. They were used in the ground attack role but did not see much action since the Japanese were seldom seen in these far away outposts. This changed later on when to moved to Biak in the north of New Guinea. Just one squadron could not make a big change in a big war in the pacific but they did it with courage! Kit is from Hasegawa in 1/48, decals are from Dutch Decal and Flevodecals. Wheels from True Details and exhaust from Quickboost. Erik
  3. Amazingly well done. Really love it! Erik
  4. They certainly were Allan, I have build 2 and they were quite demanding. But like I said, this new boxing looks more refined, I wonder if it is more refined... I certainly hope so! Will buy one if it is "new". Erik
  5. Hmm, looks way more refined than the previous boxings? Or was it just a master model builder that made this piece? Erik

  7. 1/48 P40 N Lulubelle

    Amazing job. Really beautiful P-40 Erik
  8. Arr you're right.. Failed to notice the scale.. But, if they stock 48 isn't there a chance 72 will be in stock once too? Erik
  9. No? https://www.aviationmegastore.com/?offset=25&sortOrder=1&action=as Erik

  11. Su-7 BMK Fitter - Algeria RamadanWar 1/48

    Fantastic work Jurek! Really beautiful result! I am deeply impressed. Not a very well buildable kit too. I have made the same kit(eduard), and used the same decals, but, I have to say, yours is much nicer. Recreating this camouflage pattern was very demanding for me with my limited skills. If you are interested you can find my Su-7 here; http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235012009-su-7-fitter-as-148/ Erik
