Howdy all
 After several hours waiting for the latest Windows 10 updates ( again ! ), I`m able to show you some pic`s of my latest attempt at Hasegawa`s 1/48 P-40E kit.
Finished to represent `Skeeter` flown by 2Lt John D Landers, 49th Fighter Group, Darwin, 1942. Mostly from the box, aerials, dodgy seat belts and brake pipes added. Decals from Microscale Sheet MS48-900, which are very bright straight off the sheet and took some toning down. Hope you enjoy, Cheers Russ

You can use the Place Inline feature as you place them into your post, just make sure your cursor is where you want the chosen photo to go, or to place them in order load the last one first as they stack atop each other as you bring them in. I'm guessing that's what happened here. :)

Nice work on this one, and the order these pics are in is OK too, saving the best for last.

Ahh, so that`s what that feature`s for  😗, I`ll give it a go next time. Yeah you guessed right, I forgot to start with the last one ( again ! )
Thanks for the help and for your nice comments, appreciated.

Superb , wrong order or not , sure it's one of the best P-40 I've seen for a long time . I love the superb paint and weathering job and as usual, some nice photography. Great work Russ.
