****Finished**** 1/32 Great Wall Hobby - P-40 Curtiss Hawk "Flying Tigers"

Hello everyone,

Before sharing WIP pictures I would like to clarify some points.

As you can see in the first picture there is an ventral antenna mast . If I m not wrong this was added during restoration of this bird. And it seems that GWB copied this entirely. So I have decided not to use this piece, albeit late. That means some minor work is needed to remove traces of this plugin

And secondly the color of both fuselage lights (left and right side) is blue. Is that correct??

Thanks in advance.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't that light appear to be in a different location in these two pics? It seems much farther forward on the P-40E. Maybe that is just a difference between the B and E variants?

Indeed the lights were in a different location depending on the version but they served the same purpose. I posted the pic just to show how it looks like. You’d agree it’s a very special kind of blue :P

Taking good shape, Tolga :clap2:

Just two minor details you’d want to correct:

 

The two filler caps under the side window should be RED (fuel) in front and YELLOW or SILVER (oil) at the rear.
GWH got it wrong with their instructions :rolleyes:

A noticeable difference between the P-40B/C and the later versions is the central seam visible under the chin.

They’re very easy to correct and would add much to the finished model.

 

Cheers,

Quang

Ahha.. Murpy's finger in charge.

Thanks for the warning @quang

I will fix them.

By the way I have a question about the propeller.  Are the propeller tips of these AVG P-40s painted yellow?
