Here is a DF loop I made myself using craft wire 0.4mm.
It was hard as my eyes are not as good as they used to be.
You will see some action coming.  There is a model show less than two months away!

Thanks, Mark!
I did receive it, and it looks good in the box! I am no expert, but the quality looks very good.
As to what as some have said - that the nose is too pointy and the cowling is the wrong shape - I don't have that knowledge. I still have not seen any reviews.
I am just going to have fun with the build (as Floyd Werner  wisely advises!)
Happy New Year to All!
Cheers,
Bill

Yes, building models should be fun so don't worry about it.
We have a P-40 Model area so why not show us your work as you go?

Bill,

That is a good question.  I cannot think of any US P-40E in the desert war.
It seems by that time they were sending over P-40K and P-40F.

The British and Commonwealth had plenty of P-40E (Kittyhawk MkIa) in North Africa.

Yes, Mark I'm going to rivet the whole thing.  The fuselage is hard.  I'm trying to use a ruler and double stick tape but it is not easy.

Here are the cockpit sides and the seat.  They need a clear flat coat but are pretty much done.

These may not be factory but are the best I know of right now!

I concur.
Great job fitting that resin nose!

Hello my friends!


Work has been progressing, slowly but surely.

I must say that being at the bench is where I like to be, to relieve stress.




Another weakness in the Mauve kit is the wheel wells...they are pathetic.

So I have tried to add some structure but decided to simulate the canvas liners with metal tape that you can get at the hardware store:











Here's one reason this project drags on, I'm a rivet maker (not a counter).  LOL

Actually, I got the rivet tools from UMM and just could not help myself!
