Very nice Hawk. What did you use for the antennae wire?

Thanks!

As mentioned above it was EZ Line 😉

That's terrific looking!  I especially like the subtle wear on the wing roots.  The scheme is really unique... I like it!

That is beautiful! My favourite version of the P-40, the short-tailed P-40K, in that unusual grey over blue scheme - I need to do this in 1/72nd scale.

Another cracking build from your dad! I think the VVS gray over blue is something new for me, never seen a Lend-Lease aircraft painted like that. But it suits the plane very well.

 

 Thanks for sharing this!

Very nice Reini.  This is looking spot on.

Boy my memory is going. I had forgotten your dad was doing this and I made two comments on the thread.

You were lucky you didn't put the drop tank on. It was the only part I had a problem with right at the end of the build.

Of course other than my wing joint. It looks like I should have spent more time on the cockpit joint as well.

Never seen this before too. Seems it was a repaired/overhauled and repainted aircraft.

Did only a Google search for Soviet P-40 and found none with drop tank, so my dad didn´t mount it.

 

 

Thanks a lot for your words, appreciated!!

Some La-7s and Yakovlev fighters were painted in this AMT-11 Grey-Blue over AMT-7 Blue scheme towards the end of the GPW. It is most unusual to see it on a Lend-Lease aircraft. Regarding the drop tank, since the Soviets used most of their fighters very near the front, I'm not surprised the P-40s in Soviet service did not carry drop tanks (or at least did not carry them very often); as frontal fighters the extra range wasn't needed.

Jason
