  1. I was just comparing the nose/cowling sections on the Academy and Hasegawa P-40N and am at a loss as to how they are too large or did I just have a "Dopey Moment" and misunderstood?
  2. Wow, lots of food for thought here. Looks like I'll have to hold-off on the P-40 projects for a while and see what developes. By the way, excellent build on the early P-40 Steve, nice paint! However, the Mustangs will be full speed ahead as soon as I get this resin venture up and running!
  3. Thanks for the input Hamm, much appreciated. A-36 and P-51A conversions for the Academy kits are already underway along with better B/C wings for others and a few other goodies. Since molding and casting will be involved in building a collection I might as well share the parts with everyone.
  4. I didn't know how to word this right but I'll give it a shot. Are there really accurate kits of the P-40B/C, E and N kits out there in 1/72 scale? Same goes for the Early Mustangs such as the P-51, P-51A and P-51B in 72nd also. I always thought the Hasegawa P-40's were good until reading a review by a Gent named Igor that something wasn't right about the wing roots or wing to fuselage join? Left me scratching my head. Any input from anyone? It would be greatly appreciated and thank you.
  5. Tried Alumilite products before and didn't care for them. The RTV types I tried never held up to undercuts very well and tore after the 10th casting. The resin always set up too quick. I've also tried Smooth-On, Vagabond and the types from Micro-Mark. After years of experimentation I found two products on "EvilBay" that work wonderfully and am sticking to them: For RTV- http://www.ebay.com/itm/Silicone-RTV-Mold-Making-rubber-22A-4-4lb-kit-1-1-mix-/220819379393?_trksid=p5197.m1992&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D14%26meid%3D694082883911475745%26pid%3D100015%26
  6. Would anyone out there happen to have a fairly accurate spare Prop/Spinner to sell or trade? Trying to finish converting a P-40E to the Klimov M-105P engined variant and am missing those parts. Thank you!
