P-40M 44th FS, 18FG - White 125 - Gypsy Rose Lee


Recommended Posts

Well, this beaut P40 certainly deserves to be celebrated with a glass of fine port to the starboard of the workbench.

Hahahahaha!! Very fine suggestion :D :D This will result in a definite list to starboard!


I take it port side of the work bench is where ships are built.

:D :D :D

V-e-r-y well done on that build.

You can never have enough Corsairs, P-40s, P-47s, P-51s or flying boats.


I am a big fan of the classic OD/NG P-40. Pure workhorse of the PTO and MTO, outshone by the 'Stang and F6F.

I'm of course biased since we also used them in the SW Pac.

Thanks Rossco. Agreed.. it was definitely a workhorse.. some really interesting RNZAF schemes to do.. I agree with you on the classic OD/NG P-40... the white tail is a bonus. Gotta do a sharkmouth scheme one of these days. Possibilities!

I love this build. I really want this kit. How does it go together?

Hi there - thanks!


The kit goes together quite well and is an enjoyable build. Like most of the Hasegawa 1/32 kits, it is an excellent balance between detail and build simplicity.


Things to watch out for - there are spots where joins do not appear on actual panel lines and therefore filling/sanding is necessary

- rear fuselage (tail) halves are separate pieces -for accuracy you'll need to remove this seam when joined to the front fuselage half. (I didn't).

- rear canopy inserts (I did fix this... And it took ages but well worth it to get the right look)


And careful dryfitting /adjustment is necessary for the wing root /fuselage join.


I can definitely recommend this kit. And the other P-40 variants.
