After vowing not to start another WIP after my recent Huey build I immediately went out and started........ a new WIP. Oh dear. Anyway here it is. I'm continuing my Aussie theme and building Academy's P-40N. After being terribly ham fisted and heavy handed with the Huey I'm going to try for a little more .....well....."restraint" this time around I'm underway so here's some photos.... Chocks away! This is the version I'm doing Sorry that photo was a bit hopeless IP came up well just with some black and then a white dry brush highlight. I'm going to "dab" a little gloss clear onto the dials for fun but I'm sure they'll never be visible when assembled! And this is the rest of the bits and pieces before starting main assembly Might pick a few highlights out before it get's buttoned up....again just for fun. Thanks for looking Here we go again! Cheers Bruce

MikeR posted a topic in Ready for Inspection - AircraftHi peeps, here are my first two completions for 2016; Airfix's B5N2 "Kate" and the Academy P-40N, both 1/72. The Kate is strictly Out-Of-the-Box, down to the colour recommendations Airfix cited with Nick Millman's help. The only aftermarket used was Peewit canopy masks: The P-40 has been the subject of a few extras, however. The exhausts, spinner and prop blades have been replaced with Quickboost items and I managed to graft (after some fun and games!!) the Squadron vacform canopy intended for the Hasegawa P-40N on to it. This was also my first go at masking a canopy the tedious ( ) way for the aft and sliding sections. The windshield was done using an Eduard mask intended for the Hasegawa P-40E altered P-40N pattern. I have to give thanks to Occa, LDSModeller, Nick Millman, Pete Mossong and everyone else for the help they gave when I made my initial POST relating to NZ3254 back in February: Thanks guys! Comments welcome! Mike.
With my build already being quite advanced, I'm too late to join in the GB 'for real', but I thought I would contribute a WiP thread (with permission) anyway. Here is "Squirlbate", a P-40N flown by Captain Richard J. Vodra of the8th Fighter Squadron, 49th Fighter Group during the New Guinea campaign. Captain Vodra was credited with two victories during the campaign and later went on to become successful writer and inventor. The name of his mount and the spelling thereof apparently represent his fondness for wordplay, whilst the chequered tail represents a riposte to an enemy pilot, also flying a chequered 'plane who had previously badly shot him up. The kit is the venerable old 1/72 Hasegawa offering, and the decals are by Aeromaster courtesy of Paul J. I was drawn to it by the interesting colour scheme, which Aeromaster and at least one other source posit as dark green, middle stone and azure blue. Build is out of the box, paints are Humbrol acrylics. I started off painting the cockpit and innards Humbrol 226 Interior Green and putting together the fuselage halves and cockpit assembly (above). I then moved on to the wings, which needed a little clamping:
Just finished is my 1/72 P-40N ex. Hasegawa, built OOB except for seat belts and the antenna wire. As many know, this is quite an old kit, but I think it built up quite well. I especially enjoyed using my Grex TG on the paint job. Enjoy! - Adam
