Hasegawa's 1/48 scale
P-40N Warhawk
by Timothy Holwick

Curtiss P-40N Warhawk



Hasegawa's 1/48 scale P-40N Warhawk is available online from Squadron

 

Description

 

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

  • Eduard Flaps

  • 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.
