Pictures of the P-40 before basing

This one has been tough.  Of course, there have been two job changes and loads of snow taking me away from bench time.  But here are a couple of pictures before I base the model.  I’m thinking of a desert theme with some of the extras as parts.

This has been one of the more technical models I’ve built and I really liked the cockpit.  Fit was generally good on the model.  However, I didn’t like the landing gear doors, more specifically how they attached.  And, the particular model is at least 15-20 years old; I got the kit off of eBay.  I found sections of the model to be brittle…I can’t count how many times the radio mast broke off.  Some of the decals slid right off easily, some I had to wrestle with.  Hence…some of the angles of the pictures.

When it’s based, I’ll add some history.
