Replaced my Monogram P-40B....1/48 Airfix P-40B


Recommended Posts

I had some damage to my Monogram P-40 in my Pearl Harbor collection so I decided to Replace with Airfix P-40 in 1/48. This is one very nice Kit.

Built mostly out of box except Gun Sight,Uschi Antenna and Eduard Seatbelt. Really enjoyed this kit and fit was mostly great with a few areas only needing a little sanding and dry fitting.

Painted with Vallejo Air colors OD and Neutral Grey. Over-coated with Future for Gloss and decanted Dullcoat for final finish. Used some Tamiya weathering powders to "dirty her up".

Kit decals were great and no problems. I used gloss black on Props and buffed with Uschi Chrome powder. Hollowed out exhaust and gun barrels with no issues .1545835479_FinishedP-40StrbdSideLower.thumb.jpeg.991515d53699887a2f3f1281c9a2e0fa.jpeg

Sweet looking P-40! I like the very restrained weathering, as the pre-war planes were quite well maintained. I've got one of these but have yet to tackle it. Glad to hear that it's mostly trouble free. Thanks for sharing!
