  3. 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
  4. Curtiss P-40B Warhawk (A01003B) 1:72 Airfix The Curtiss Hawk 81-A-2, known in US Army Air Corps service as the P-40B Warhawk and in RAF service as the Tomahawk Mk. IIA, was a single seat fighter based on the radial engined P-36 Hawk and first flown in 1938. The P-40 series went on to be amongst the most produced US fighters of the war, with more than 13,000 rolling off the production line. A popular aircraft with its pilots, the P-40 earned a reputation as a manoeuvrable yet tough aircraft. The Kit This was a new tool for

  6. Hi, Concerning those P-40's defending Pearl Harbour I wonder if the edge between the green and the grey was hard edged or soft edged? https://www.victorymodels.com/products/wolfpack-1-48-decal-p-40-warhawk-part-1-pearl-harbor-defenders-at-dec-7-1941 Cheers / André
  7. This is my first entry to a group build but as I had just picked up the kit on eBay and intended to build it straight-away it seemed logical to join the build. The kit is the Hasegawa 1/32 P-40E Warhawk and at this point in time I'm not sure what markings I'm aiming for. The kit provides a Dark Earth/Dark Green P-40E 'Texas Longhorn' in New Guinea in 1942 and a China based aircraft in similar markings. I've got some old Superscale decals on order for Texas Longhorn and I'll have a look at those before choosing the final scheme. Anyway, here's the kit: With
  8. Greetings folks! Here is my entry for the GB Italieri's reboot of the AMT kit with lots of choices of markings. I have still to decide if i will do an M or an N model, which will ultimately depend on what markings i choose. Looking forward to getting going. TFL Greg
  9. Hello everyone, finally a GB I was waiting for, with my favorite fighter. I will be working on Hasegawa's P 40 E. To make this kit more interesting I have chosen unique decals made by Kit World company, with nice pin-up girl . The kit was made in late '90s, so isn't top-notch any more. But it is still the best on the market, that is why I have decided to add PE parts from Eduards. Warhawk will be marked as the fighter used by 79th FG.
  10. TopDrawings 68 – Curtiss P-40B/C/D/E (9788366148185) Kagero Publishing via Casemate UK The P-40 was designed as a low-cost fighter/ground-attack aircraft, which struggled to keep up with the moving goalposts that were set for it in terms of performance. It was eventually accepted into service in 1941 under the name Warhawk, and Tomahawk in British service with the Kittyhawk moniker being coined for the D onwards. It still wasn't the fastest kid on the block, so tended to be used primarily in theatres away from the top-echelon Bf.109s and Fw.190s. Thus it tends t
  11. P-40N Warhawk 1:72 Special Hobby The Curtiss P-40N Warhawk was a single seat fighter that could trace its roots back to the radial engined P-36 Hawk first flown in 1938. It ranked amongst the most widely produced US fighters of the war, with more than 13,000 rolling off the production line. A popular aircraft with its pilots, the P-40 earned a reputation as a manoeuvrable yet tough aircraft. The P-40N was the last major production variant. The fuselage behind the cockpit was stretched to counter the torque of the more powerful engine. In an effort to red
  12. Hi guys, So this is my first post as a newbie on here, it's my Hasegawa P40e Warhawk that was purchased as a Easter present from my lovely lady. I'll put some photos of bits and bobs that I have done up to now as I'm nearly finished so it's not that detailed a walk through I'm afraid. I would say I think she paid about £20 for it and it's a great little kit to be fair and has been an enjoyable build. The detail is good especially the landing gears. I had a lot of filling and rubbing to do on the fuselage as the tail end is separate, in highnsight I probably should have glued half the
  13. 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
  14. Hello there, this is my P-40E from Hasegawa OOB, i used mainly Vallejo and Tamiya Paints, the model is brush painted. Also this is my first go at chipping, i used Vallejos chipping medium and it worked pretty well. Well, it got a little bit heavy in the end, but i kinda like it. Also my first go with oils for streaks etc. By the way, i´m still figuring out the photographing part.... Hope you like, Cheers

  18. Now I am getting the hang of Flickr, I thought I would upload some of my earlier models, built since returning to scale modelling 8 or so years ago. This was built from an Aldi Airfix Starter Kit. I cut the canopy to open it up, I think it may sit a bit high. The camo is from the little pots, but the azure blue was more like midnight, so I used some Humbrol Enamel. It doesn't look quite so virulent in real life! This second plane is an Aleutian P-40e. It's scratchbuilt from solid balsa, following WW2 US Navy recognition plans. These plans were issued to school
  19. I've had a soft spot for the P-40 since I was a kid. I blame the Airfix Kittyhawk kit. It was a must-have when I started getting interesting in building modes in the second half of the 1960s: the exotic colours; the shark mouth; the box art flying over a burning Axis convoy on a desert road - what wasn't to like? https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/8/4/8/148848-11669-pristine.jpg I clearly remember having one in its bare silver grey plastic with the markings stuck on, and another later example finished from my dad's stock of gloss Humbrol enamels that he kept in th
  20. Hi! Here's my first for 2017. The new Airfix kit was a joy to build. I modified the pilot in the kit to a more natural pose. The prop blur was simulated by brushing pastel on the spinner. The model was painted using Vallejo Air colors. Hope you enjoy. Any comments appreciated Best regards Rune
  21. Hasegawa Curtiss Kittyhawk Mk IV (P-40N), Sqd Leader Geoffrey Atherton, RAAF. The kit is Hasegawa's P-40N, finished with Academy decals. The kit's a bit basic but not bad, it's OOB except for the seatbelts and ariel Wire. Painted with Lifecolor RAAF colours. It might seem crazy to use Academy decals (not much good in this case either!) but I love the RAAF aircraft with the white tails and leading wing edges and it means I can do the Academy kit as a P-40M. thanks Mike
  22. More Sword 1/72 kits are no longer available but still have some left but we can't restock! We still have the F-94 Starfire, Seafire XV (late) and Kittyhawk MK II/III dual kit left in stock, if anyone wants them! We also still have the P-40K Warhawk dual kit in stock, not many of them left at the big H now! http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk/sword-172--kits-142-c.asp thanks Mike
  23. Morning folk's put the finishing touches to this one over the weekend,a 1/48 Warhawk was on the hit list at the recent Northern show but proved to be thin on the ground I was on my way back to pick up a Monogram kit I,d seen when I spied this AMT one for a tenner.The decals were beyond help so I ordered a set from the big H.I always admire Russ C's Warhawk builds hence the kit but also some of the different far east schemes too so on the sheet was an "N" flown in 1945 by Cpt. Wang Kuang Fu,7th F.G. 3rd F.G. of the Chinese air force.A nice kit to build,some beautiful engraving the only part
  24. I've just finished this one; I had the P-40 left over from the Dogfight Double set when I built a couple of Zeroes, so I thought I'd get it finished just for tidyness' sake as much as anything... I managed to get all the small parts off the sprues without breaking any, which I believe is a record for this particular kit which has some rather excessively large attachment points; I built it more or less OOB with the exception of the addition of Eduard Microfabric seatbelts, EZ-Line aerial wires and I drilled out the exhaust stacks and the cowling .50 guns. The interior was painted in Sovereig
  25. Curtiss P-40 Warhawk / Tomahawk / Kittyhawk. Even though shown in the markings for The Flying Tigers at Pensecola this P-40B was an RAF Machine which was then supplied to the Russians. Pics thanks to Bootneck Mike.
