Hasegawa 1/32 P-40E

Recommended Posts

I haven't posted in a while but here's my 1/32 P-40E. I modeled "Yellow 49" Aleutian Tiger from the 343rd FG 11th FS in the Aleutians 1942. I thought this was different in that there were no blue surrounds on the national insignia. I got the idea from a photo in Squadron's In Action book.

 

 

-Removed extra frame work to make a 'E' windscreen

-Mike Grant instrument decals

-Added wiring behind instrument panel

-Eduard external photo etch

-ID bands and stars were masked and painted

-Decals are Barracuda Cals P-40E Warhawks Part I

-Added brake lines

-Added extra plumbing/wiring to the wheel wells

-Enhanced the gunsight by adding an MV lens

-Used an MV lens for the landing/taxi light and fuselage formation lights

-Made seat belts from Tamiya tape and the buckle hardware from Eduard 1/32 USAAF seatbelt set

-Antenna is E-Z line

-Modelmaster paint

-Pastel weathering

 

Now on to the pictures...

Very nice, being a 1/72 builder the cockpit detail possible in these large scale kits just blows me away. I like the weathering too, you did a nice job of making the plane look well work without going overboard.

Well, I'll throw out a problem I see Ken.....you don't post your stuff here often enough! That's a SWEET P-40! The extra touches you added really make it sparkle. That is everything I'd ever want in a P-40. Congrats on a spectacular build, and please post more often!
