  1. Hi all Really enjoyed making the Airfix Tomahawk. Recently descovered my Frog decals for a Flying tigers P 40B Only I have one side painting instruction and no decscription of colours. I thought of Humbrol 30 dark green and humbrol 29 dark earth for above and Revell 59 duck egg green for below. Can I improve on this in enamel paints? For those of you bewilded or need of revision: Gen. Clair Lee Chennault's American Volunteer Group took delivery of just 90 P 40Bs to fight the Japanese invasion of China. Thanks in anticipation for any links/pa
  2. Hello Everyone... Fresh out of the P-40 STGB. I present an 1/72 Airfix Tomahawk. I have built it to represent a 3 Squadron RAAF Tomahawk in Palestine summer of 1941. Not a bad kit i can see more of these in my future. Without to much discussion i present my build to you. Please feel free to ask questions, comment, and or give your thoughts. Here is a link to the build if anyone would like to take a look. Dennis
  3. Hello everyone... Quick question concerning RAF Tomahawks ? On Hurricanes and Spitfires the RAF used doped linen to cover over the gun openings. How did they handle the exposed .303 barrels wing guns and .50 cal. nose guns on Tomahawk ? Did they wrap the barrel or just the tip, or did they not cover these guns at all on Tomahawks ? Thank you in advance for any help ? Dennis
  4. Hi All and Seasons Greetings, My latest build is an Airfix 1/72 Tomahawk built virtually OOB apart from new wing gun barrels from 0.5mm brass tubing and some aerial wires from fishing line. This was a nice build with no major problems, bought it at Aldi about four years ago. The Azure and Dark Earth is Vallejo Model Air and the Middlestone is AmmoMig acrylic. some pastels and dilute colours were used for weathering. The photos unfortunately show how my canopy masking sucks Constructive comments welcome as usual !!! Next up Hasegawa SH-60B
  5. Yet another one ,Vallejo and Xtracrylix paints used Managed to knock all of the guns off ,found some scratch built the rest .Haven't done any weathering .
  6. 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.
  7. At the start of this year, one of my goals was to do comparison builds. I think it will make me do more kits and reduce the ever growing, multiplying exponentially stash that, frankly, it just out of control. I do not know how these things happen. (Perhaps build one kit a month, buy 5, maybe?) Anyway, this group build seems like the perfect place to start. Plans are to complete comparison builds of the 1/32 He 219 (Revell & ZM), 1/32 Mustang (Tamiya, Trumpeter, ZM), 1/48 Me 410 (Meng & Revell), 1/32 Skyraider (ZM & Trumpeter), 1/32 Me 163 Komet (Hasegawa & Meng) and 1/72
  8. My entry for this GB. The P-40 Tomahawk IIb 'Ace of African Front' boxing from Academy. Review here at IMPS. A bit of background: This build will depict AK402, GA-F, 112 Squadron. This aircraft was flown by Pilot Officer Neville Duke, based at Fort Maddelena in Libya, November 1941. Neville Duke was one of the highest scoring Allied aces, with 27 kills by the war’s end. While flying AK402, Duke was shot down on Nov 30, 1941 by Otto Schulz of 4/JG27. He belly landed safely. Inside the box are three sprues of gray plastic, a clear one for the transparent canopy parts, the
