Nice job Dennis,

                      I have a soft spot for the P-40`s and P-39`s which were finished in this `coral' scheme,

Cheers

          Tony

 

PS,..... A tip with that gap below the slid back canopy,....... add a narrow length of plastic card behind the cockpit rim,.....it acts as the canopy runner and blocks the see through appearance,..... I hope you don`t mind me saying this mate?

Looks very nice! I've been reading about this plane lately while debating whether or not to refurbish an old monogram P-40N. It was one of my earlier builds so I think it'll stay as is for now. That and it has no canopy- I don't care to drop 20$ for a replacement part from a 4$ kit.

 

That said, I'm certainly inspired to build another P-40 now. Perhaps after the P-6E, P-12E, P-26, Y1A-8, and A-12. 

 

Can't wait to see your next build.

Agreed maybe in the wanted section when/if you have your 100 posts.

The next builds already going but its an F-18C hornet. Heres a link if you’re interested.  http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235035971-“mad-as-a-hornet”/

Nice one, Dennis.  I’m currently reading The Flying Tiger-J Samson. Good book about Claire Chennault.  No Ns but enough about the P-40 to pique my interest.  Maybe after the Corsair(s) and Bearcat. 

 

Cheers

Oh now that would be fun to follow. The old monogram now Revell P-40B is supposed to be fairly accurate in its shapes/dimensions. It really deserves to have a real build like your others.

Yes it would. In my early teens one of my favourite kits was the Monogram Speedee Bilt P-40.  Balsa, tissue and a couple of plastic bits, if I remember.  Shark mouth of course and rubber band powered.  Didn't fly very well, too heavy, sort of a controlled crash.  I think the John Wayne movie about the Flying Tigers was a big influence.  I must see if I can get a copy of that film.  

 

Corsair coming right along.  Fuselage halves together, etc.  Pics in a couple of days.

 

Cheers

 

Dennis
