  1. I have several Hasegawa P-40s in my stash including one EduArt version (which is really nice). The shape issues I have seen with the new Trumpeter make me scratch my head. Looks like they put their "B" team on them. Still I have no reason to not do my Hasegawa's because the shape on those is very very good.
  2. Looking good! i have this kit in my stash too!
  3. I worked with a guy 25 years ago that was older than me. He saw some posters I had in my cube of WW2 fighters. He said his father flew P-47s in the war and had remembered that the fighter's eight 0.50 caliber guns were "devastating". He also said his father had permanent dead spots on his retinas due to constantly looking at the threat of German fighters diving out of the sun... Greatest generation!
  4. I have this kit too and I'm curious if you could join all the fuselage skin parts first. That way some of the gaps and alignment would be cleaner.
  5. Beautiful job on that F4U-1A! Weathering is outstanding!
  6. Superb craftsmanship! Thanks for sharing the ride!
  7. One of the best weathered finishes I have seen!
  8. Love that yellow paint scheme and great job on those decals!
  9. There is also an extra canopy brace on the windscreen. On port side only I believe. You could just paint that on.
  10. Wow!!!! That is beautiful!!!!

    Great job on that Lightning II !!!!
  12. Tamiya are very meticulous so they may be working on something that may still be a year or two away. Me, I'd love for them to expand their Corsair releases to have a F4U-4 and F4U-5!!!
  13. My mother and sister live pretty close to San Marcos so I think I'll have to make it to the Nats in 2020!! Hope to meet some of you guys in person there.
  14. I have used Mission Models paint on one model and had great results. Agree with what has been stated in that if you over-thin the paint it is no good at all. I now use only a small amount of thinner and some folks spray it "neat". I also recommend their additive to make it harder to scratch off. As for their primer, it was fantastic. It was very opaque and snuggled down really tight hiding no surface features. I plan to use it as my main primer. Testors Model Master Acryl gets a lot of hate and I don't agree. I have used it a few times and have found that mixing it with Future (Pledge floor finish) gives beautiful results. The Future mix is so hard after a day of curing that I cannot even scratch it with my fingernail!
  15. Airfix have recent P-40B/C releases in 1/72 and 1/48 where the shapes are very correct. Wish they would release a 1/32 as well...
  16. Awesome! cannot wait to see your next project. A P-38!
  17. Keep the P-40 Tomahawk and the P-36 on your list! Jumpei Temma has some really good drawings of each.
  18. Great job on that Mustang! I have the ZM kit too. So you recommend just go by instructions? I am concerned about all those skin panels lining up as well.
  19. Awesome! Big and beautiful!!!!!!
  20. Flak Bait was stored outside some years after the war? This weathering is a little extreme for wartime planes that were only months old.

    I still have a lot of MM enamels. Recently I retired several bottles that had gone bad but they were about 35 years old. Recently I learned how to airbrush the MM acryl paints and I really like the results. Hope this is fake news...
  22. On YouTube you can find “Ways of the Warhawk” a wartime training film. The interior of that P-40F looks bronze green to me.
  23. Super awesome work! I enjoy riding along with you on this journey.
