1/72 RS Models Airacobra I (P-400) Soviet Air Force

Recommended Posts

Hello and thanks for your interest,

this is my attempt on RS Models 1/72 Airacobra I.

The export version was called P-400 and is identical to the P-39D series.

The kit was problematic, suffering from incomplete mouldings, damaged clear parts and generally poor fit.

This is the best I could get out within the 4-weeks timeframe I had.

The model was painted with Tamiya & Mr.Hobby acrylics.

Decals from the box, representing a machine operating in the Murmanks area, winter 1942/1943.

I'd like to thank fellow Britmodellers Troy Smith and Fernando as well as Mr. Gerhard Pomp from Vienna for their valuable help in research.

A detailled build review will be featured in an upcoming edition of Scale Aviation Modeler International.

@Roman Schilhart. Psst, I think  Father Christmas' might be getting one of these RS Airacobra's for me at Christmas, an RAF version. Anymore detail on the problems I'm likely to encounter? What would you have done in the build if you had more time?

Hi My Friend Roman!!!

I have watched how this RS brand kit turned around and after watching carefully the detailed pics you have shared here can only say that if with a problematic kit like this one you have got this result, its not strange your marvelous works with kits that has no complications at all, but with this one, the only thing I can do is give you a "Hats Off and Standing Ovation"!!!  

Thank you very much for sharing!!

Cheers,
