Mauve 1:48 P-40M/N

Recommended Posts

I have the Eduard 1:48 P-40M which is the Mauve kit. Can I build the N from this boxing? It has the N canopy and cut down rear deck piece. Would just need decals unless I need to do something else to the fuselage/armament. 

Thanks for any tips.

the instrument panel was different on some sub-blocks of the N your kit may not have them on the photo-etched tree.

most people would probably not notice if you do not point it out to them. 🙂

Also, N-5 and subsequent had
- wheels 27" instead 30" (14,3mm vs 16mm at 1/48)
- bomb shackle for 250# under each wing instead 6x30
- no electric tab on port aileron but a protruding tab as at starboard.
- auxiliary gun sight: there was bead only, the ring was engraved in armor glass of windshield

- landing gear indicator(yellow peg protruding the leading edge when the ldg was down and locked)

- gun camera located in front of starboard ldg fairing.
