Hasegawa 1/32 scale
P-40E Warhawk
"Kay Strawberry Blonde""

by Tolga Ulgur

Curtiss P-40E Warhawk "Kay Strawberry Blonde"


Description

 

This is 1/32 Hasegawa P-40E Warhawk with the markings of “Kay Strawberry Blonde” flown by Sammy Pierce of 8th FS / 49th FG Doboudura, New Guinea in Spring 1943.

 

 

The inspiration for this build is the profile in Kagero's Curtiss P-40 Warhawk book.

The cockpit was modified with an Eduard photo-etched instrument panel and seat belts.

 

 

I also used the Quickboost exhaust set and Grey Matter main wheels.

The gunsight is from Master Model.

Nose art “Kay Strawberry Blonde” made by Custom Hobby Decals and numbers of “Red 42” by my friend Ozkan Turker.
