Hasegawa's 1/48 scale
by Timothy Holwick
Curtiss P-40N Warhawk
Hasegawa's 1/48 scale P-40N Warhawk is available online from Squadron
After building Mauve's P-40N for Euro Modelismo, I decided to try Hasegawa's kit.
In my opinion this is a much better kit.
The only issue with the Hasagawa kit is the time and attention needed to fix the tail to fusalage joint.
This was a time consuming build, but I am pleased with the outcome.
The kits and accessories used are as follows:
Hasegawa 1/48 scale P-40N
Avionix resin Cockpit
Ultra Cast resin exhausts
Master .50cal brass gun barrels.
Paints used were
Testor's Model Master enamel Sand on the upper surfaces and Testor's Duck Egg Blue lower surfaces.
I used the Hasegawa decals as they proved to be accurate from the few very good reference pictures of the aircraft.
The model was weathered with Mig Pigments.
