    First off, here is the pilot who flew this.

    Commonwealth biplane fighter aces - Neville Bowker

    Username: B-17engineer
    First name: Harrison
    Category: Beginner
    Scale: 1:48
    Manufacturer: Revell
    Model Type: Curtis P-40B
    Details: RAF 112 Squadron in Egypt 1941

    I'd like to give a special thanks to Wojtek for sitting through this since September. I really think my skills have improved since the beginning. Thank you for making my first model special :)

    Also, everyone who supported me throughout the build.

    It may not be the best, but to me all that matters is I'm happy with it. Keith informed me Mr. Bowkes flew a P-40 labeled 'B' so when my skills are a bit better I may try to do some justice to Mr. Bowkes crates.

    Those are the 4 required ( think/hope)

    Harrison, Keep this bird some place safe and use it as a measuring block on which all future models will be compared to.

    Congratulations Harrison! It was a long road and sometimes frustrating but I think you learned a lot. Good luck with the judging. Looking forward to your Stuka and Dornier!

    Well done Harry. Not bad at all for your first model. With Wojtek's guidance you've done a great job.
