    Name: Glenn
    Category: Advanced
    Kit: Hasegawa Curtiss P-40N Warhawk
    Scale: 1/72nd.
    Accessories: Three Guys Replicas decals. Scratch built seat, armor, gun sight, wheel wells, pitot tube and antenna mast.

    Here’s Lt. Rodger Farrell’s P-40N “Island Dream” of the 7th Fighter Squadron, 49th Fighter Group, Dobadura New Guinea, 1943-44.
    I read up on the 49th during this build and learned quite a bit about a part of the war that I didn’t realize how little I knew about. That’s what I really love about this hobby.
