I just "eyeballed" the blade pitch angle...and it is a little too flat.
I think minimum was 22 degrees and I won't miss it on the next kit I build!

Well, too busy lately so work on this project has stalled for a while.
However, I will finish it.
Here is a shot of the finished propeller.  I has been sprayed with a mixture of Future and Tamiya Flat Base.
I used too much flat base so it is a little "chalky" but it looks nice and weathered that way, eh?

It's coming along nicely, Vince.  Yes, "Into the Teeth of the Tiger" is an outstanding book.  I read elsewhere that Don Lopez preferred the P-40 over the P-51 (at least its early versions, IIRC) for combat in the CBI.

Looks great and kudos on staying with it completion!

I can relate as I also have a Allison powered Mustang kit I started over 20 years ago that is still on the shelf of Doom....

This is the Academy kit, started nearly 20 years ago as a tribute to AVG member Charlie Bond, who I sat next to at a fundraising event for the documentary "Fei Hu: The Story of the Flying Tigers," but which I set aside once I learned of the dreaded accuracy issues with the kit.  Recently I decided it still looked enough like a Tomahawk in my eyes that it was about time I finished it.  I recall using the Cutting Edge cockpit and decal set along with the Eduard flaps, but I think everything else is OOB.  20 years is a long time to remember these details!  Also, this is my first use of the Imgur photo hosting site since Photobucket now charges several hundred dollars a year....

Some progress has happened.  Done with the prop so I'm working my way front to back I guess!

Have I gone off my rocker?  LOL!

OK, that's better

This is a prop jig I made many years ago.  Still works well!

I will say that this is a great read and has inspired me on this model.
I had always thought less of the USAAC group that followed the Flying Tigers.
Why?  Well I guess I didn't think of them as the Flying Tigers.
Well, no more.  These guys and their trusty P-40s fought HARD!

Delicate work for sure but the end result is going to be something special, I am enjoying every stage of this build.
