I've been playing with this build here and there, mostly to try out my new compressor. The upgraded compressor has made spraying a lot easier but new problems have developed that I didn't have to worry about before, such as tip dry. But I'm working out the bugs as I go because I've read more than a few forum posts that have given the solutions. So I'm doing pretty good lol.

The kit is actually quite aweful, having misaligned parts that are not always in scale. The kit glass is too small and required me to add styrene shims which makes it look like the canopy came from a Hurricane. It's only saving grace is that the decals are accurate for Charles Olders plane.

I decided to build it wheels up and there is still some detailing to do before I call it complete. But I am at a point in which I think I can share this little crap bird.

Colors are Vallejo - U.S. Dark Green, Game Air Earth, Vallejo Sky Grey, and Tamiya NATO Black. Aside from touching up the sharks mouth decals I've primarily used just those colors.




I've been wanting to build this kit for a long time. I knew it wasn't a great kit, but it's an AVG P-40. I must build it lol. Besides, it did make for some good airbrush practice!

Dear lord it's been a while since I've posted anything, and even longer since I finished this little model.

This kit is a mere toy in comparison with the new tool Airfix P-40B.

The details on the Airfix kit are vastly superior in comparison. If you're a fan of the P-40B then Airfix has you covered in both 1/72 and 1/48.

Kit looks very good for something you used as airbrush practise.  And welcome back!
