Nice work on the cooling flaps. They didn't have gaps between the fins?

Greg, As far as I can tell there were no gap between the cooling flaps. Many model kits in all scale get's this wrong. Thanks.

Following! Great job on the detailing. Did do one myself, the kit has it's problems so the more interrested in the final result of your project.

Patryk S Thanks. You are right. There are some issue with the kit, but all in all a nice early P-40.

Greg, Thanks I like doing the step by step photos, it adds to the fun of modeling. It will help me in the future if I would do more Airfix P-40's on what I did. In my past life my job was much like my modeling starting broad and then focus on the details. Well time to paint, more fun.
