  1. I fear quarantine has finally caught up to me and left me fit for the madhouse. While I finish tracking down the paints for a 1/72 Texan in Brazilian Markings courtesy of Tim and finish painting a 1/72 Mustang in Guatemalan Markings courtesy of Herb, I've decided to crack into what I expect will be a years-long endeavor. Having recently done more reading on the later marks of the ever-beautiful P-40, I came across a few more photos of the TP-40 models, both K and N, and somehow decided making a TP-40N starting from the Academy kit didn't seem all that difficult. So then, of co
  2. Ok, on for something new. Or, to be a bit more precise: on with something old and start a new WIP thread here. As stated here I was not sure what to do next, and among the various options I felt like continuing with a 1/32 Trumpeter P40 is a good thing. So, @Corsairfoxfouruncle here's the invitation to follow this one. The topic of building Arvid Olsen's P40B, Leader of the 3rd Squadron of the AVG, named "Hell's Angels" came to me quite a while ago, when I read that it was him that suggested the name of the Motorcycle Club, based on the name of his Squadron, which th
  3. Hi all, So finished this build fairly quickly for my standards and I think its testament for what a nice little kit it is. There were a few minor issues mainly the tail to fuselage join (which in hindsight seems like it could be much more straightforward) but all in all a really enjoyable build. One thing I did do that's worth pointing out is swapping the target crosshair from just in front of the screen to a PE part off an old Eduard German gun sight, this gives for better scale. Some of the lights which I hope you will see on the tips of the wings were just the clear parts and be
  4. Hi All! Been some time since I last had time to build something, but here is my most recent attempt Let me know what you think! I'm quite happy with the weathering and finish overall, I don't normally build them "wheels up" however. Thanks in advance for any comments
  5. After jumping in with my first 'Ready for Inspection' post, here's my first WIP. My enjoyment of the extra details and interior bits-and-bobs with the Tamiya 1/32 Corsair led to this, my second, 1/32nd scale build. It was a gift, and if I am honest - I have never been a lover of the P40 in any of its variants, and I really don't know why. It's an amazing looking aircraft, huge spinner, shoulder heavy, and so on... It's just never really grabbed me. But either way... Here goes. I will, as usual, be working with brush paints and rattle cans - as I do not (ye
  6. Remembrance Sunday. A perfect day to finish this tribute build. When 24-year-old Flt Sgt Dennis Copping was forced to crash-land here in June 1942 he probably realised he stood no chance of survival. On June 28, 1942, Flt Sgt Dennis Copping of the RAF was flying a damaged P-40 Kittyhawk between two British airfields in Egypt for repairs and maintenance. But the aircraft never arrived at its destination, and for 70 years the Kittyhawk’s fate, and that of its 24-year-old pilot, remained a mystery. The Kittyhawk bearing the 260 Squadron “HS” squadron code and the aircraft letter
  7. G'Day All Latest one of the bench is the Bronco 1/48 H-81. Not one of my better jobs. This one took longer than a 48 scale single engine fighter should. I think because I ended up adding a true Details resin cockpit to correct the kits undersized one. The only gaps were the wing roots. Apart from that it assembled OK. the kit comes with an engine, but I could not display it as I wanted to, as the firewall is forward of where it should be. Apart from that I also added a Ultracast seat, and modified the awful representations of fabric control surfaces Bronco give you to better represent
  8. With RAF Tangmere just down the road from me and my local model club displaying on the Museums 'Bader Down Day' this August I thought that this model would certainly fit in as Neville Duke has such a history with RAF Tangmere when he broke the sound barrier in his Hawker Hunter. The Hasegawa kit is sublime, fitting extremely well with good detail for such a kit. Adding Eduards interior PE set rises the game to a new level. The only other extra that I did was to drill out the exhaust stacks and guns to add some depth. The build went smoothly and having lots of photos of the AF Air-wing in 1
  9. Hi everyone, I would love to try and do a 76SQN kittyhawk with the lightning flash, however there is no decent photos that I can find on the internet. Is anyone able to assist at all? Below is an image that I have cropped off another image.
  10. I am a bit stuck as there seems to be a pattern used on the P-40's that went to China and those sent to North Africa. Although I always thought a batch meant for China landed up with 112 sqn. Lastly there seems to be a variation from the P-40E (Kittyhawk). I would be grateful for any help and accurate 3 view drawings.
  11. Hi all sorry I seem to be taking over the RFI section this week! These are the last two of the quartet for the P40 STGB,this time with the trademark shark mouths we tend to associate with this aircraft,this has been a hoot building these cracking little kits even with the annoying wheel hubs and wheel leg joints thanks to a certain supermarket I got three of the four kits for £7:50! Thanks for looking.
  12. Hi all,first for the year,part of a four plane build over on the P40 STGB,this one is the first completed a soviet machine based near Moscow in the winter of 1941,trials and tribulations here.http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234973974-airfix-tomahawkx4-raf-soviet-and-flying-tigers/

  14. Hello all, Here's the latest one of the bench. It's Academy's 1/72 P40M. I'm enjoying building straight from the box of late and this one is OOB save for the addition of the seat harness..... I have been trying for a while to effectively pre shade and I'm quite happy with how this one turned out. It seems that it's very easy to put too much paint on and loose the shading. This time I left it wanting, less is more it seems. The kit goes together very nicely and the build was going very well until... The decals, then oh dear what can I say... Very thick, they would not settle no matter wha
  15. Righto everyone. After some shocking builds I picked a simple one to practice. I'm building up to a particular Hurricane and need to put some work in! I managed to splurge and got myself a brilliant Iwata double action airbrush and I'm learning as much as I can as quickly as possible. I have to say it's brilliant to finally be able to afford my hobby! HA HA! On this build I was trying the new airbrush, tried polishing compounds to clear up an accident on the canopy, practiced a bit more weathering, tried some new glue (Tamiya Ultra thin....I'll never look back!) tried PVA glue on the canop
  16. Hi folks,this is another kit that has sat half finished since Christmas so a few days off work and got it done.Great kit,average decals especially that tiger! the photos have shown up the poor fit of the rear cockpit glazing which I have now sorted.Thanks for looking.
  17. So after a few days I can finally say I've completed a model this year, or 3. All 3 in "flight" Apologies for the harsh light, it is our guaranteed "1 day of summer" 'oop North. P40 first, the right wing has let me down by flaking a bit. Luckily I can just shrug and say "Well they weren't bothered about keeping them clean" Side view, I couldn't decide how best to do the whitewash look. I thought about the hairspray method but after the "success" with Humbrol's black weathering powder/decalfix solution I though the white would work better. Spitfire I made a pigs ear of the props.
