The Great LSM Twins Group Build ends July 3, 2024 ×

Hasegawa P-40M/Kittyhawk III next up


Recommended Posts

This one's been on the shelf for a good while so I think I'll build it now. Will be mostly OOB and as "Wairarapa Wildcat" using kit decals. :) Should be a easy straight forward build.

Always liked the Curtis P-40/kitty hawk family.

I remember building a p-40 kit made Otaki  in the 80s'

Yes indeed. I built that one too. Wonder what became of Otaki?

Oh, long gone I suppose. I built all their WW2 Japanese stuff. Their Corsair and P 51 as well. Good stuff. They built up ok as I remember. Heavy rivet detail, but I thought the kits

were cool back then. Oh, nostalgia!

Agreed. I think I might still have a couple in my stash somewhere! LOL :)

Thank you Peter. I'll overspray the prop with clear flat to get rid of that glossy area. This kit is practically falling together. As close to a shake and bake as you can get! :)

The cockpit looks great John, albeit the seat seems to be a bit thick casted, which is relatively prominent due to the aluminum color.

Cheers Rob

I can live with that. 😉

This is fast even by your standards, but it does remind me that I have one of those in the stash and the P40 was a truly iconic WW2 fighter so I must plan a build in sometime.

Cheers

This is such a easy build it just doesn't take a long time to make significant progress. Hasegawa and Tamiya are the two best in my opinion. :)

Fast beautiful clean job John!

Where do you store all the finished models ? You really have an amazing building frequency. 

Thanks Kai. :) I've run out of room in my display cases so now I just have to put 'em on top and on wall shelves. I hate to do that since they collect dust, etc but I have no other options.
