P-40N Warhawk 

Choosing this particular build was a little out of my comfort zone and I am quite happy that I saw it through in its entirety.  I’m not usually one for these special schemes, but the iconic P-40 can make anything look good. There is a pink scheme that I need to build as well. 

This was the first Hasegawa P-40 build to grace my workbench. While I would choose an Academy kit over the Hasegawa representation, I certainly didn’t have a poor time assembling this one. The build as a whole went great. Nice fitting parts with superb decals. And lots of them. I was pleased with the minimal amount of silvering here and there. I didn’t expect to get away with a perfect decal application with so many to apply. Nevertheless, I think it turned out wonderfully. I chose to keep the whole aircraft squeaky clean. I doubt the real one had enough time to get filthy so a shiny P-40 is what we get. It’s a pleasant change to my normal routine.

  1. It’s a great aircraft and a fabulous addition to any collection, but I just can’t find it in my heart to truly like it. Don’t get me wrong, the model and build is stunning as always, but the finish is too ‘busy’ for my liking. Certainly a conversation starter at any party.
