Hello, I propose you my P-40B based in Pearl Harbor in 1941.
I made improvements inside the cockpit by modifying the instrument panel and adding seat belts. 16 CPG_9170.JPG Externally I have eliminated some raised panels in relief and I enjoyed adding some rivets (a little finer) to those on the kit.
For coloring, the Olive Drab tamiya used, after having carried out the aging work to highlight panels and give the effect of the "lived" to the aircraft, may seem slightly darker.
However I hope it is your taste.
Greetings and good life.

Nice build and great job on the weathering.  If you used decals, they sure look painted on to me.

That's some really nice work. I just love these early P-40's.

Outstanding modeling!! I really favor a kit built with a diorama.

One can learn a lot about P40s, B's or otherwise, from this fellow:

Thanks for this very interesting video. Unfortunately my English leaves much to be desired

Bel lavoro. Unico appunto, gli alettoni dovrebbero essere uno alzato ed uno abbassato. Puoi ancora farlo, se vuoi.
Cool job. Just one notation: ailerons should be one raised, one lowered. You can still do it, if you wish to.
