Very nice build!  I am slowly working on this model as well, at the painting stage now. Finally settled on a scheme, it will be from the Aleutianís with a yellow spinner and yellow wheel cover.

Thanks.... Look forward to seeing photos of your build. The yellow spinner and wheel covers should relly set it off.

That's will be a great looking model.
I have the Hasegawa 1/32 scale P-40 kit that I want to build but it will be several months before I can start it. I am working on 1/48 scale B-17s for our local club build. We are trying to get 18 built to display in a bomber box display at one of our LHS.

Nice work, especially with the weathering!  I really have a soft spot for those AMtech kits, and plan on doing one with the same markings as well.

It's a fun model to build, just take your time and work out the fit problems with the kit.
