Hasegawa 1/32 P-40N
By Tolga Ulgur
This is the Hasegawa Warhawk with the markings of 'Geronimo' of the 45th FS on Nanumea Airfield, Ellice Islands, Dec 1943.
As can be seen in reference pictures, this P-40N has early style large wheels instead of the 27 inch typical “N” wheels.
In the cockpit I have used an Eduard instrument panel and seat belts.
Exhausts were replaced with an Eduard Brassin set.
For painting I have used Gunze Sangyo and Tamiya acrylics. Sand color is a mix of Tamiya XF15, XF57, White and few drops of red color.
Customized “Geronimo” nose art is from Custom Hobby Decals (www. customhobbydecals.com).
