I have just completed a couple of P40 War Hawks.
Still working on the exhaust pipes but I hope to get that completed in the next couple of days.
I did a little bit of a change for a few upcoming War Hawks that I want to build that I notice when researching some possible paint schemes. 

Any comments good or bad, are appreciated, it only helps me build better.

Everyone be safe and happy building. 20200414_111758.jpg  20200414_143341.jpg  20200414_143350.jpg  20200414_215803.jpg  20200414_230936.jpg  20200414_231001.jpg  20200417_103536.jpg

I did a P40 earlier this year.  I wrote a blog on my modifications, mostly ref rounding hard edges to resemble flight surfaces for the fuselage, wings, tail, prop, and nose.

Wombat, John and BobbyDe thank you for your comments, greatly appreciated!

Wombat yes that is a F18 in the background.  My wife picked up one of the balsa wood kits in England a few months ago.  I started to assemble and a little voice said why don't you go to your shop and build something.  Honestly I think my wife was talking to me in my sleep LOL.

BobbyDe I need to look at your blog on the article.

John as always this is an awesome set to do and having fun doing them during this time of quarantine. Thank you!!
