Why copy, they just decided to choose the same scheme. There was a long debate what camouflage should Eduard go with and this is the result.

So Eduard release an existing kit with existing decals?

 

Hardly filling a gap in the market.

 

And I find Eduards obsession with scantily clad females bloody infantile.


"First, shalt thou take out the Holy pin. Then, shalt thou count to three - no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shall thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that then thou shalt proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number is reached, then lobbeth thou thy Holy hand grenade of Antioch towards thy foe who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it. Amen"

The rudder camo is similar but different to my eye.

Decals in reality are much more close to the colors from instruction sheet. Distributors leaflet is more for information as for considering the reality:

https://www.scalemat...nstructions.pdf

Then why print the wrong colours on the distributors leaflet??? - Makes no sense?

 

The colours on the decal sheet are more suited for the Home Roundels worn in New Zealand, but still too light

for actual colour used in the forward areas, and the "G" Code letter is still missing on NZ3220......................

I am glad that these molds are back in circulation, so we don't have to suffer the insane price increase of OOP Hasegawa.

This is the reason I just went for the overtrees option. I have the decals for the scheme I want (Ventura decals Gloria Lyons) and the resin bits required, narrow tyres, exhausts and the drilled out breather plates. That and the fact I got a Hasegawa P-40N for under £40 delivered. May well order another if there's still overtrees available come next pay day. All I need is decals for the stencil data, which are proving a little hard to find and proving to be the only stumbling block at the moment.

Does Eduard do the overtree thing with other company's molds? I thought this was only for their own in-house kits (MiG-21, Spit, etc)? I would've picked up bunch of the 1/48 Academy F-4s and Hasegawa A-4s if they had/have overtree offerings of those from when Eduard boxed them.

Well, this was a surprise for me too... Yes they offer overtrees for P-40N. I am not sure, but Eduards CEO mentioned this before, but of course, this was not pushed forward, due to the possibility of ruining the market with their full kit.

I had suggested other options for a "Burma Banshees" P-40N, but they wanted to stick to that machine, flown by (one of) the last 80th FG pilots still alive... Phillip Adair sadly passed away last month.

P-40N #1 flown by Ivan McElroy would have been an interesting option, or Bob Gale's "Dikam Death".

See my blog: http://burmabansheesblog.blogspot.fr/ or the "Burma Banshees" Facebook page.

Come on, Rising Decals ;)

You can get both full kit and overtrees from Eduards webshop.

 

I got my full kit at Modelbrno 2017 exhibition.

Hmmm... I have the first edition of the kit and I like The Jenning's scheme much better. I am not a collector per say.
