1/32 P-40F Pumphrey Pin up

Recommended Posts

Double checking if everything’s square. Need to fill in some seams on the tail plane, make the rudder and fins fit better, then repaint the cockpit. I made an error using bronze green, rather then interior green. Seems I read somewhere that the cockpit was bronze green, turns out it wasn’t.

Wow, that has got to be some of the deepest mud on an airfield I've ever seen.   Hopefully the landing strip wasn't that deep!

Looks good! Id be curious to see what the join between the resin tail and IM fuse. 

 

The grey matter resin tail was specifically for the Hasegawa P-40E, with an already separate tail. The resin tail is more wider at the bottom, but ok on the top when fitted on the Trumpeter P-40.

So when trumpeter tooled this kit, they should’ve mentioned it the earlier short tail version. I noticed it lacked the antenna mast, an extra frame on the windshield, and the rear view mirror on the canopy framing appropriate for the version I’m aiming for. Should I scratch build it, or leave it be?

You can paint that extra framing on the port side of the windscreen pretty easily.

The other parts should be easy to scratch.
