Kittyhawk 1/32 Airacobra 1

Recommended Posts

G’day All

This  one is from a few years ago, but I don’t think I ever posted it here.

Its the Kittyhawk P-39Q converted to an RAF Airacobra 1,  by way of using Mastercaster fishtail exhausts. I had planned to replace the kit 37mm with a 20mm and leave the gun bay open, but in the end could not satisfy myself with the details 

The kit had a few issues fit wise, nothing too major, but from memory the wings needed shimming.

Markings we’re painted on using a mask set from Maketar for the SH kit.


Theres a few flaws in the build, but it remains one of my favourites.

thanks for looking






overall view

the paint work looks very catching


there are a few areas where the construction looks a bit dodgy eg rear canopy join to vertical frame which does not look great in the close-up 3rd pic - was this bad fit?
