1/72 Trumpeter P-40B RAF Tomahawk

Gallery Article by Pierre Christian Baudru on June 8 2009


This model is very good and has good details.  If you want to have an opened canopy, you would better do a copy of the canopy. In my case I didnít and had to sand internal left and right sides to find a good fit before gluing it in open position.

I used Humbrol 89 for the blue and Tamiya Mid stone and dark earth for the camouflage scheme. Cockpit is interior green US.

Decals are from Hobby Boss P-40B, I just had to replace the white code letters that were wrong in colour and size.

I think itís a great model and easy to build. It took me only 28 days to finish. I hope you enjoy!
