    Default Official Soviet Lend Lease P-40 Repaint

    Ever since getting the Free French P-40 in the Wings of Glory starter set, I have wanted to repaint it as a Soviet lend lease P-40. I was inspired to do this based on the origin of the Virginia Military Aviation Museum's P-40. See my profile picture, it is the plane I am standing next to. Thanks to Richard Schwab, I learned that the plane was originally recovered north of the Arctic Circle, shown here: http://www.warbirdrestoration.co.nz/past.html#yagen .

    I ordered decals from AIM and hand painted the rest, based on a painting shown here: http://warandgame.files.wordpress.co...40inusssr2.jpg . I strive to make my models table ready, and I am quite pleased with the results.

    Hi Chaps!
    Thought I would add my USAF Warhawk to RAAF Kittyhawk conversion to the official P-40 thread.
    I have already posted the pics in the Hobby Room section so apologies if you have already seen it.
    Simple but effective conversion!

    Not exactly P-40Es, but rather P-40Ns here and are 1/144 scale. Did these a while back, can't remember right off hand, but I wanna say these were #80 Squadron, R.A.A.F. ?

    Some time back, these were the only 1/144 scale P-40Cs I could find. The kits were the crudest kits I've ever built in my entire life, no fooling. The props had so much flash on them, the part looked like a solid disk. It took me an entire day to cut out the two props alone. Kami De Kokoru, or something like that, was the garage company that made them. I saw them on HLJ, and after paying about $20 USD each, including shipping, for them, I was determined not to give up on them, and at least finish them.

    These are P-40Ns again, ancient Arii molds, and I wasn't too happy with how they turned out. This was my second, and last; attempt at making my own decales, the Skull Heads. The models were terrible but not so expensive, but seeing as how I already owned them, I determined to see them through as well.

    F-Toys came out recently with a super P-40E, and I wound up buying 6 pairs of those, which I just love. This is a painting thread, and seeing as how I didn't do any painting on those F-Toys P-40Es, I figure they don't belong here. I did "Home decale" on 2 pairs of those though!

    But here are my second set of Arii P-40Ns. I was going for 80th Fighter Group out of Assam Valley, India.

    Ok, just one or two little pics; of one pair of my F-Toys P-40Es. These aren't one of the F-Toys versions. In buying the other 5 pairs, I noticed that if I swapped up the spinners, I could do an early war version P-40E, aka "Tora! Tora! Tora!" style.

    So I did.

    These are my AIM 1/200 Japanese P-40's.



    The P-40 is one of my favorite planes and the AIM model is beautiful.



    I've wanted to do these since the first time I saw pictures of Japanese captured P-40's.



    I hope that after the matt varnish spray the plastic look of the decals will disappear.



    One more view of the red and green effect.

    They did. And guess what pilot will fly the fanged one?

    See here, my friend:

    You must let me see yours. I will also buy 4 more in the future to paint them as UK desert fighters.

    Nothing too flash here; just a change of decals and some light touch-ups, but it shows that the "Hill" variant is quite versatile. It's not 100% historical, being rather a composite of elements in several photos. Ready for Operation Husky!
