Another awesome build, Russ. Love the finish, it's just perfect in every respect. I have the Eduard boxing of the Mauve M/N kit in the queue and it will have the same style of camo. Your model will serve as inspiration and template.

Missed this one when you first posted it, Russ, but glad I see it now.  Really nice paint job and weathering, and also with dealing with all those plugs and inserts!

What can I say Russ? superb as usual, I particularly love the P-40 with its aggressive look and what a canvas for nose art and in this case, fuselage art! 
That's a keeper!
Regards
Steve.

I'll second those comments. Just beautiful!

I know you use that background for SEA subjects too but it is fairly appropriate for a "Top End" location. Having spent several years working in the Northern Territory (including the Darwin area), that misty forest is quite reminiscent of an early morning scene during the summer "wet season", just after a downpour when the air is heavy with humidity and the morning sun is evaporating the moisture in a steadily rising, steamy mist.
