Hasegawa 1/48 Curtiss F-40E Warhawk

Recommended Posts

Here is my latest and final build for 2018: Hasegawa's 1/48 F-40E Warhawk in Brazilian markings from 1953. The decals are by FCM and are absolutely terrible. The paint is Mr Color 8 Silver. A full build article is at https://jonbryon.com/hasegawa-1-48-curtiss-f-40e-warhawk/. I am aware the area behind the rear canopy should probably be silver. Comments welcome and thanks for looking.

Checked it out on your website Jon (pics here are still going funky) but I gotta say that's one helluva aluminum beauty you've built! Cranking out amazing models as usual so keep up the good work!

Despite the decal challenge, the finished model is very nice.  I like the subtle weathering.

Very nice Jon! BTW, FCM now uses Microscale for printing, so things are a lot better....the P-40 decal sheet must've been from their original printer...that silver is amazing!
