 My only complaint is the dark color of the plastic, mainly because I am so used to working with grey.  

Mark

Mark,
I have a Mauve Kittyhawk MkIII kit in which the base plastic is a tan color (subject is a RAF desert scheme).
Perhaps you could pick up one of those on eBay and get rid of dark plastic issues.
Vince

Thanks, gentlemen!  It was one of those builds that I had a certain amount of work I wanted to put into it, but no more.

Just finished it.  This is the AMtech boxing with the resin tail and kit decals, along with True Detail wheels, Ultracast seat, and Yahu instrument panel, the latter actually designed for the Hasegawa P-40E kit but still worked quite well. 

The P-40 was the stalwart war steed of 450 Sqn RAAF, the "Desert Harassers," from the Kittyhawk's introduction to combat in North Africa to the end of the war in Europe.  I believe OK-T flew out of Libya some time in 1943.

TIA for looking!

I took three good resin prop blade castings and have primed them with Krylon Matte Aluminum.
The subsequent black on the back of the blade will be rubbed down to simulate the actual paint being worn off.

Thanks Mark

I am very picky about the prop. Perhaps because the P40 nose is so prominent.

Almost all kits have inaccurate props. Most of them don't put in any twist along the length.  Do I sound like an aeronautical engineer?  Well I am.  LOL!

Anyhow. That guy that did the old Monogram P-38 nailed it. I use them on any Allison model I do including a P-51A that I have not finished.
