1/48 Hasegawa P-39D-1-BE Airacobra "Air-a-Cutie"

Recommended Posts

Hasegawa 09738 Kit with kit decals.

Used the left side Q from the Eduard kit since that has the black outline around it.

SBS Model Prop

Vector Wheelbay

Brassin Wheels (except for the nose wheel, which will not fit in the kit part)

Black Box cockpit

Master in Miniatures .303 guns and pitot from a P-40

Rexx exhausts

Got rid of the wheel doors since they were not on it

And used a Tamiya P-51D fuel tank

Paints from Mr.Color range

 

Hope you like it. I do. And it was a quick build for me, only two months!

I don't like very much the real plane... 

But your model is fantastic... I like the general weathering... perfect!

This is a very nicely build P-39, although the pictures doesn't do it justice, it looks way better in real life!

Nice Sid, on to the next build!

She's a beauty - the model that is - the scale model. Very nice work on the finishing.

Lovely job on the P-39. I really like the way that you've done the OD.
