P-400 Airacobra - 5th AF Milne Bay (Hasegawa 1:48 #09092)


With the recent release of the new P-400 tool from Hasegawa, I decided to continue my run of WWII aircraft. As you would expect this kit is worth the A$40.

I deviated from the kit build (and markings) where I thought it would benefit the end result. The main addition was the extended flaps and I found a much more interesting P-400 paint scheme in the Eduard Profipack kit (Sand & Spinach I have been told by a reliable source) than the brown/green options provided by Hasegawa.

The build of this model (106 photos) can be found On the Bench
