P-40 'Hawks' - more of 'em!

I have now completed all of the most recent consignment of F-Toys aircraft. To start off, here are the three P-40 Hawks.
US P-40E 'Jerry2' of the 18th Pursuit Squadron.  A rare example of a model P-40 without 'sharks teeth' markings...
The underside of 'Jerry 2'
Another US P-40, this time from 8 Fighter Squadron.
P-40 Kittyhawk of the RAF's 112 Squadron.
All of the current batch awaiting their individual photo shoots.
One of the F-Toys boxes, showing the complete set.
One of the P-40 kits awaiting construction.  Not a big job!

The more I see these Tim, the more I like of them.

I have a Me109 to rebuild and paint, but never seem to get around to doing it.

I am always looking for excuses for this but now the Fatherland really needs it.

Great eye candy post!

I thought that lot would get you drooling on your keyboard! Bf-109 coming soon! Is this 'Aircraft Week?'

Is this 'Aircraft Week?' Don't know but, you got me looking hard at these 4 F4U Corsairs I've had in their original boxes since 1982!
144th scale Academy kits I picked up in Korea for a 100 won a piece
(about $0.18 US at the time)

Think it's really boat week thanks to Bob C!

I built a pair of ancient Revell Corsairs last year - possibly the same tooling?

Chris Kemp said...

oooh, is that a Romanian Bf 109?

Cool, nice looking kits, quite detailed by the look of them

Chris Kemp
Indeed it is. Closeup coming soon...

Tim Gow said...

They are very nice kits - that's why I can't stop buying them!

Awww, the P-40 is my absolute favourite fighter of all time. Wonderful models.

Despite not being the war's greatest fighter, the P-40 does seem to have quite a following!
