Academy 1/72 P-40B Tomahawk FINISHED
Posted by Builder on Thursday, January 11, 2018 11:37 PM

Hi All,


I completed this kit at the end of last, year. I got this kit for $3 (Australian). I haven't taken many photos of it, as I think personally it was just a real poor effort on my part with this kit. I rushed it, and made a few mistakes in doing so. In any case here it is


Build Summary

I built it OOB with no extras. Painting was done with Humbrol enamels, I was not very happy with the paint job camo pattern, but I didnt fix it. No preshading or post shading of any kind done. The bottom of the plane was not really highlighted much, but it was stained a bit. The panel lines were highlighted with copic multiliner pens with a 0.02mm tip.

I hope you liked the post. As always all comments welcome.

Very nice! I like it, not every plane has to be weathered. It's your canvas, you're the artist, do it your way!
