Flying Tiger's P40 !



Model is from Trumpeter at 1/32 scale, build by Pierre !


P-40B of the AVG in China circa 1941.Trumpeter 1/32th kit out of box except Cutting Edge complete and nice cockpit.The cockpit included in the box is a bit spartan and far from being deep enough,so the seat can't be high enough and gets a rather strange shape.The horizontal tailplane has been totally reshaped,division between fixed and moving parts being totally wrong.I simply copied the tailplane of the 30 years old Revell kit ! Did'nt placed the British IFF wires from wings to fuselage as the system was totally useless at that place and at that time.Colors are from the Gunze Acrilyc range ,trying to match the Du Pont Co attempts to reach the RAF colors specifications.Decals are from Eagle Strike,splendid ones as usual,the tiger in the V looks like a decal,well it was a decal,directly coming from Disney's Studios! One word more for those who like to show the engine installation:Trumpeter has made here the best OOB installation I've ever seen,just a little cable and tubing to add and you get a masterpiece.
