FINAL WEEK – Academy’s 1/48 P-40N – Completed!

The final week of the Academy 1/48 P-40N I applied the decals, top coated it with a matte finish, and installed the clear parts to finish the aircraft. This kit was a nice build. The fit was not too bad with the wing roots being the area needing the most work. The instructions were laid out well and the kit decals were good. The Eduard detail set was easy to install and adds nice details to the cockpit and main landing gear bays. I would recommend this kit as the finished aircraft looks nice and represents 2nd LT Adair’s aircraft very well. Thank you for following along.

You can see all the photos and details from start to finish in my build log at:  1/48 P-40N Burma Banshees “Lulu Belle”

Next up – Last year I built an R4D-5 that was from the movie “The Thing from another world”. I really enjoyed building it to match the movie. So I decided to do another movie build. This next build I will be building a 1/48 A-6A Intruder representing the aircraft used in the 1991 movie called “Flight of the Intruder”. The movie is about a Navy pilot Lt Jake Grafton (Brad Johnson) and his bombardier LCDR Virgil Cole (Willem Dafoe) who fly an unauthorized mission during the Viet Nam war. The aircraft will be built to replicate the aircraft as depicted on that particular mission from the movie. I will be using Eduard’s “Big Edition” photo etch set as well as Eduard resin bombs to add details. Stay tuned for another interesting build. Happy Modeling!
