  1. Great Wall Hobby (G.W.H.) is working on its first 1/32nd kit a Curtiss P-40B Hawk 81/Tomahawk - ref. L3201 Sources: https://hobbylink.tv/the-latest-scale-model-news-from-the-all-japan-model-hobby-show-2018/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/MilitaryModelingSRG/permalink/2152742281608317/ V.P.
  2. Hello there and welcome to my first workbench thread. So, a bit of background about me before getting into the nitty gritty: I started aviation modelling when I was seven or eight years old, my first effort being a Matchbox Westland Lysander, bought from the local corner shop. My Mum started it with me, she made a good job of the interior, and then I proceeded to make a right gluey mess of the rest of it! Build time, approx one hour its amazing it stayed in one piece! Anyway, I was hooked and up until I was in my mid-teens I continued building aircraft kits, mostly 1/
  3. Hi folk's a very brutal weekend was spent culling most of my old 1/72 build's sad to see so many binned but they really are just collecting dust now,One I really couldn't part with was a build from about five years ago of Airfix's little Tomahawk might have overdone the weathering a bit
  4. Happy new year to you all! Here is my finished tomahawk. Oob build, only added the decals on the props and made the seat straps from tape. Painted the underside with Mr hobby azure blue and the top side in Xtracrylic dark earth and vallejo mid stone, all the rest in tamiya. I wasn't going for accuracy on this one hence the red nose. Fun build no problems, its a good little starter kit. Thanks for looking. Dave.
  5. Hi all, Not done much at the bench recently due to 1/1 stuff that needed doing. This has been sat on the bench for about 3 weeks with just the canopy to mask so I got it done today. Nice little kit. OOB except for seatbelt and gun sights which came from an etch set. Thanks for looking Neil
  6. I've got a big project lined up next so thought I'd squeeze one or two fast builds in. I started this yesterday and made some good progress on it. It's been in to the bench about 3 times now but kept getting relegated due to others things nipping in front! The cockpit went together quite quickly. The colour was mixed from what I had so probably not too accurate but you see very little once it's inside. I need to add a seatbelt yet Some riveting has been added, haven't a clue how accurate it is, but adds a bit more detail to th
  7. Hi All, Now that I've sorted out linking images, here's a build I finished about 5 months ago. It is Airfix' new tool Tomahawk MkII, finished as an aircraft of 112 SQN RAF, Libya 1941. Finished mostly OOB, with the addition of Eduard interior set and masks. Painted with a mixture of AK Interactive (Azure & Mid-Stone) and Vallejo Model Air (Dark Earth). This was before I properly got to grips with colour modulation, so the end result is a little 'flat' to my eye. In addition my weathering skills are not up to what I'm sure would have been a much more heavily used aircraft. Despi

  9. Hello everyone... well I'm in with this kit. I find it fitting that I'm building a kit of a Tomahawk, and I grew up in a town named Tomahawk Wisconsin so it works for me. The kits decals are for 73 Squadron and i have a set of lend-lease VVS decals i may use. My confusion lies in that i cant find very much on 73 squadron using Tomahawks ? Ive seen Hurricanes in the same time frame this is supposed to be a P-40 Tomahawk unit. Ultimately if I'm not happy with the options id like to find a set of 112 squadron or AVG markings. Im still looking and
  10. Looking at what photos I can find (going by serial numbers), Mk.Is appear to have the later larger wing root of the Mk.IIs, not CUs. Is this correct of just my imagination? Did the Mk.I have a canopy horn alarm? - can't find any photos of the starboard side. Is there any reliable wing panel drawings? Anyone know the codes for these II (AC) Squadron Mk.I and Mk.IIBs AH850 AK107 AK144 AK146
  11. Hi Folk's,finished for the MTO GBis Airfix's lovely Tomahawk,I was just leaving the Northern show when I spied the kit on the last stall before the door for a mere £12 and when I saw the 112 Sqn scheme had to have a crack at it.Sgt.William Earl Houston was only 19 when he lost his life on operation's over the Western Desert on December 12th 1941,from Hawkes Bay in New Zealand after training on Hurricane's with 52 OTU he joined the famous 112 Sqn and their equally famous shark mouthed Tomahawk's the story goes that an AVG pilot saw a newsreel of 112's P40's and painted the same
  12. P-40 from Trumpeter. I made few corrections and added things to cockpit and engine. Tail wheel bay is bulit from scratch. Decals (mainly) are from Techmod and gun barrels and pitot tube are from Master. Unfortunately i broke pitot tube ending. WIP thread was on LSP: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=69082 I forgot about gunsight, so i did one photo with it. It is on the end of this post.
  13. 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
  14. For your enjoyement, or otherwise, an Airfix P-40B finished with Kitsworld 112 squadron markings. Paint by Hataka, weathering washes and pigments by Flory and AK Interactive. This is an excellent and enjoyable kit to build. Build thread:

  16. Hi all! I have figured out which P-40 type is called what in RAF service: P-40 B/C = Tomahawk P-40E (4 guns) = Kittyhawk Mk. I P-40E (6 guns) = Kittyhawk Mk. IA P-40F (shorttailed/Merlin-engined) = Kittyhawk II P-40L (longtailed/Merlin-engined) = Kittyhawk II P-40K = Kittyhawk III P-40M = Kittyhawk III P-40N = Kittyhawk IV So far - so good. I also understand that there weren't many Kittyhawk II (P-40F/L) delivered to th RAF. Now here's my question: Would a P-40F/L delivered to the RAAF b
  17.

  18. An odd bit of diversion from Fine Molds, 1/72nd scale missiles. Announced so far are a Tomahawk cruise missile with VLS launcher, and an SM-3 Standard with VLS. (Will we get a 1/72nd Aegis ship to go with them??) http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10474672 http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10474671
  19. 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
  20. I'm trying to do Neville Duke's airplane AK578 as depicted on the Xtradecal sheet, Early P-40-Part 2. The problem comes in when I did some research that apparently AK578 is a Kittyhawk and not a Tomahawk. Is Xtradecals wrong? There is conflicting information on the 112 page. One place has it as a Tomahawk with the picture of only the front end. The picture is difficult to make out if it is a Dark Earth/Middlestone/Azure or TLS scheme. Then in the serial number portion of the page it describes AK578 as a Kittyhawk Mk.I. Another of my trusted sources, Roy Sutherland at Barracudacals, has
  21. HI all - well she's finished. Heres Auntie's latest, finished as AK367 From 112 Squadron RAF, October 1941 at Sidi Heneish, using Barracudecal's excellent markings. Painted with custom mixed Tamiya acrylics, and finished with a little love. All comments welcome, as ever. Hope you like her! Jonners Here's the model with a Hurricane MK1painted in "standard" RAF Dark Earth, Dark green and Sky to try and show my attempt at the 'similar' US DuPont colours on the Hawk.
  22. In yesterdays post with my Bf 109 I mentioned I had a few more RFI's to show you so as promised here's the next one on the list: This was a cracking little kit which I paid no more than £2.99 for from Home Bargains (always on the lookout for models wherever I go). It is built OOB with just the odd scatchbuilt item. Please let me know what you think - pics below:
  23. Hi again, While awaiting the finishing touches for the Maltese Mosquito, and before attempting another bigger build, I thought I'd take the opportunity to bash out my Airfix P-40B that was originally intended for the Starter Kit GB. Unfortunately, in the course of the GB, it became clear that the paints provided by Airfix were so completely wrong it was practically a 'what if' build. We were only allowed to use what came in the box so the Tommy went back into storage. Now here it is, living to fight another day! The kit is completely bog standard from the Al
  24. This is my first ever participation in a GB, and although four months is a long time, I'm a slow builder and the time frame coincides with peak work period, some planned holiday, and a probable job search, so spare time is likely to be very limited on occasions. Plus, it's summer! So, bearing that in mind, I've opted for this kit as my initial contribution. It's the relatively new Airfix moulding, packaged with VVS decals in the Airfix Club kit from a few years back. I built the Flying Tigers P-40 last year for my son's ceiling display, and I don't recall any major issues with the kit, so it s
  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.
