  1. Looking at the boxart, I don't feel they did a good reserach about the markings, either... Seems to be a 16thFS 51stFG P-40N, but where did they got that red band on the spinner ?? Should be OD. Many interesting schemes to choose from, in these CBI units.
  2. Seems to be a masterpiece WIP: great work ! Congrats ! I guess the Hs-129 will be just as nice ! So many details hidden... what a pity ! Depicting a wrecked Ki-45 would be an option
  3. Well, their Facebook page shows they are about to release a re-box of Hasegawa's P-40E in their "Bunny Fighter Club" series ! See post from Jan,29: https://www.facebook.com/EduardCompany/
  4. They were supposed to do another special boxing of Hasegawa P-40E/K, and I was in contact with them for the markings. They messaged me, in December, saying that they cancelled this project because people had no interest in 1/32 Well, the P-40N with resin bonus was nice, but who need to have a poster + a large 3D metal-plate to boost the price in the 80/100€ range ?? Good thing is that I sold the metal-plate for 50€ on eBay so the kit + bonus were cheap: I had bought it, on sale, for 70€ !
  5. Next to the "Gare de Lyon" railway station: http://www.euro-maquette.eu/decouvrez-le-magasin/ They may have the new CSM... + both are available there (75013) : http://www.tonyshop.fr/index.html
  6. Too bad that Hasegawa doesn't seem to be interested into doing one... ! And I also received an email from Eduard (I had suggested markings options for their P-40E/K reboxing project): <<Thanks for your email. There are no good news regarding the P-40K. From the release of our versions of the P-47 & P-40N, we learnt that modelers are not so much interested into 1/32 kits. So, we do not plan to release the P-40K/E boxing. Too bad, as it's my favourite version of the Warhawk. I just bought the new 1/72 kit from Special Hobby and will do Nollmeyer's plane.>>
  7. Of course, I agree regarding the red surround, but is there any color evidence regarding this "brighter & lighter" blue surround ? Thanks. Great model perfectly finished, anyway :)
  8. Lovely, F4U ! ... but shouldn't the nat. insigna's surrounds be red, rather than this quite bright med. blue ?
  9. Bravo, cher ami ! Looking forward to discover the diorama !
  10. Nice rendition of one of these well-worn machines ! Only nitpicking: too bad you didn't add any weathering on the decals.
  11. Excellent built & beautiful paint job. The spinner and decals look a bit too clean, in my opinion, but I'm nitpicking You say that it's your 2nd P-40N, so where is the 1st one ?
  12. Good to see one in French AF markings ! My uncle was there, flying Piasecki H-21 copters.
  13. Is there somewhere a pic showing that P-40K ? I've only seen a profile artwork + a photo of another with similar markings from the 15thFG, named "Rhapsody in rivets"... Great job, anyway !
  14. Tom Cleaver wrote this on "M.M." website, when the Special Hobby kit was released: "The only other 1/32 kits of the P-39 I am aware of is an early vacuform that was (if I remember correctly) released by ID models and which was the kind of vacuform that gives the genre a bad name, and a resin kit that was the first release from Scratchbuilders; this kit is on my list of Ten Worst Kits Ever Released..."
