1  P-40 Warhawk Forums / P-40ís Today / P-40s over Omaka on: April 26, 2011, 04:52:52 PM
I recently went to the classic fighters Airshow in Blenheim, New Zealand.
There were three P-40s on display so I took some pics and a couple of short clips:

Well done so far, real tidy.

Excellent build and a beautiful model!  Great job on the weathering.  I have been slowly working on another update, way behind on it.  I will post some of these pictures on the site linking to this thread.
Thanks Brad, that would be awesome.

It's all over, here's the end result:

More weathering:

Minimal update tonight.
Brakelines, weathering, gunsights and Tyres.







The middle shot shows the updated seat colour (Thanks for the tips Brad).
The last shot shows the Oleo placards which, like the sliding Canopy framing, are hand painted.
I know it's wrong but that's just the way I like to do it.

A quick question for you clever people...
Who can show me where the aerial wires attach? Does the K still have them going down to the wings?

Also, Does anyone have any colour images of the wheel wells showing the pipes and hoses?

Great looking model Dimitris.
It's always fun making these planes look beaten up and yours looks terrific.

I am still chipping away at this one.
I'm really resisting the urge to heavily sratch this plane as the servicing units kept them in very tidy condition so I've tried to keep it subtle. However, nothing can hide from the Pacific sun so I'll try to fade the paint as much as possible without going overboard.





Oil, dust and smoke are next.
Also, after a note from Brad, you may notice that I have painted the seat silver.

Nice fix! Looking great!  Smiley
Cheers but I don't know if it's really "fixed"

A little minor progress...
I've managed to complete the decalling and start attaching all the fiddly bits.





The 9 on the nose used to be an 8. The great thing about decals is their flexibility.
Serials are from Ventura and I used the the kit data stencils. I had a note from Brad Hagen that there should also be placards on the fronts of the oleos, so I'm going to paint those:



I used a PE Gunsight from Toms Modelworks and painted the Mastercasters Fishtail exhausts grey (for now)

Maybe it isn't too late after all.
I painted out the offending stripe,





remasked...



and painted them in the right place.





Incidentally, if your are doing RNZAF P-40 "Gloria Lyons", the Hasegawa painting and decal guide is correct.

I have some old RNZAF markings from Roo Decals. The paper was very old and required dunking several time before I could get the decals to budge. The fuse roundel is layered with the yellow circle going over the top of the blue/white/red roundel, with a big clear section in the middle. This proved to be tricky as the decals started to disintegrate as I tried to position them. MicroSol to the rescue.



The rest of the Decals will be from the kit sheet.

At this point, I realise the forward white stripe is in the wrong place! Too late to fix it now.
Still, I was using the Hasegawa paint/marking guide and it's correct to that.
BTW, it's in the right place for "Gloria Lyons" but not "Wairarapa Wildcat".

After working on a couple of other projects for a while, I picked up where I left off on this one.
Here's the photos:

I've begun painting the exterior. Masking for the wavy lines was done using a pair of scissors borrowed from my wife. She makes srapbook style photo albums for a hobby and has many handy tools.
I guess the white lines will be next.









Sorry, that last one's a bit blurry.
