My plan with this build is to just go the way it takes me.

First up is I do actually plan to use some after market.



Some initial images.




And then I let the voices guide me.







Even a little off the wing.




Overall there are some things I am not happy with and some I am.  Happy with the work in the cockpit so far.  The detail seems to resemble the pictures I have.  I am however still not sold on the frames.  The kit is the Grey.

Always fascinating watching these, Joe

Thank you both for looking in.

The shapes are just made looking at pictures.

I mean the process. Do you use a 3D printer? Or do you hand crave it from styrene? Or some other method?

Sorry for the delay.

Everything is scratched from assorted strip, rod, tube, and sheet.

Just a quick update to this point.

Work on the Hasegawa 1/32 P-40E continues with the mocking up of the engine, firewall, and instrument panel.  This is just roughed but the radio equipment will be placed this way in the end.  Much still has to be done.  Wiring, plumbing, and assorted smaller parts need to be fashioned yet. 

For this update however the engine received a bit of detail work.



A bit on the firewall and the rear of the instrument panel.  Much more needs to happen here. 



And finally the mock up.




Moving slowly towards the moment I can spray some color.
