    Trumpeter 1/32 P-40F Soon to be Released??

    I admit that while I have the GM resin conversion, I have not yet built it... I actually joined this very forum while Derek was making the masters! Yes, those masters are not perfect but to my knowledge there is nothing better available if you want a 1:32 "F" or "L". So I will be quiet now until the Trumpeter kit is in our hands and reserve judgement until then.

    Trumpeter 1/32 P-40F Soon to be Released??

    I am a true P-40 afficiando. I can see from the photos of the sprues that this this Trumpeter kit is rubbish. What a disappointment! It appears the canopy is elliptical in cross section but the real plane has flat sides. WTF? The top of the real "F" nose is very nearly straight with only a slight curvature. I can see they got this wrong. As a picky P-40 guy, I will continue to hoard the wonderful Hasegawa kits and if I want an "F" I'll use the Grey Matter resin upgrade. Trumpeter can kick rocks....

    Trumpeter 1/32 P-40F Soon to be Released??

    I'm pumped about the subject but will wait for a couple of build ups. Trumpeter has let me down before. I have their P-40B in 1/72, 1/48, and 1/32 and all have shape issues.

  6. He sloped the exhausts up a little bit and I'm not sure why. The exhaust stack line should be perpendicular to the prop, right? It is actually the panel line above the exhausts that slopes down and that would have been easier to do anyway...

    1:48 Mauve P-40N "Lope's Hope"

    Hello my friends! Work has been progressing, slowly but surely. I must say that being at the bench is where I like to be, to relieve stress. Another weakness in the Mauve kit is the wheel wells...they are pathetic. So I have tried to add some structure but decided to simulate the canvas liners with metal tape that you can get at the hardware store: Here's one reason this project drags on, I'm a rivet maker (not a counter). LOL Actually, I got the rivet tools from UMM and just could not help myself!

    Are the Hasegawa P40 kits really ill fitting?

    There was an extra bracing added to the windscreen on the port side only. This was introduced late in the series with the "M" and "N" so it would never be seen on the "E". Hasegawa as you know fixed the mistake and I think offered replacement parts for the early "E" kits.
