    Nice! After I'm done with my Tomahawk I'm most certainly gonna get me one of those later P-40's, an Aleutian Tiger of sorts seems like an interesting thing to do, to kinda link it to my AVG kite since the Aleutian Tiger were apparently commanded by Claire Chennaults son.

    I have decals (and a good p-40E Otaki kit) for an aluetion Tiger p-40e.

    I hoped to show with this build that if you put in a little effort, even an older less detailed kit can look decent.

    Many model builders starting with myself can't afford to buy the latest tamiya or hasegawa 1/48 offering, or eduard extras and so forth, so we have to rely on the secondary market and a little kit bashing as it were!

    My little P-40 will win no awards, but he's decent and that is good enough for me! ;)

    Plus, if you think about it working your way through an older kit (be it ancient Airfix/Otaki/some old Monogram thingy or whatever) is more often then not a lot more challenging (even OOB) then slamming together a typical shake bake Tamigawa kit (which doesn't mean those aren't nice, as they can be quite relaxing to build), let alone adding extra details/scribe panel lines...etc. etc. IMHO there's a lot more to learn in terms of basic techniques, and taking it to the next level in terms of adding extra details etc. from building these old kits.
