Joe,
nicely done P-40! I like it very much! This really is the classical scheme for a P-40!

Unfortunately I couldn't finish on time, but I will finish the build and post pictures.
Managed to get the primer on. Been booked off for a month with a viral infection and hypertension, go figure.
Will post photos as soon as the new Router gets here. Had a close call with lightning, router, phone and digital TV box lost. So been a great last few days- NOT!

As usual Michael another sterling effort and a great campaign with some mighty interesting builds. It has been a pleasure to follow all of your builds gents! Congrats to all who completed and commiseration to those that have for various reasons been unable to finish in time. Look forward to seeing your next projects in the future.

Well folks, I'm afraid it's time to call it quits on this one. Congrats to all who finished and participated, it's been a great campaign! I will be awarding ribbons soon, so let me know if you don't get one and think you should have.

See you in the next go-around!

Bob,

The only thing I did on this one is preshade after the primer coat.
For the weathering and exhaust I used soft artist pastels. I sand some off on to paper then use different size brushes to apply and blend.

Jose, I found the problem with my Vallejo Matt Varnish. There were clumps in the bottom of the bottle and I did not strain the fluid before spraying through the a/b. Took the a/b apart to clean and found all sorts of debris in the area of the needle and the cup. Now all that is needed to finish up would be some lube, which I cannot find.

Im definitely not finishing, I just havent had the time Id thought Id have this past month. I'll still be working on it though, Im ready to start painting once I finish rebuilding the rib detail on the ailerons around the wing tip seams.

Great work to all who finished!

Jose, Sorry to hear about your flat coat I definitely understand how that can take the momentum right out of the build. Hopefully you can save it with some gloss coat!

Bob, great work getting your Hayabusa done I think it looks pretty sharp

Lap man, Beautiful Hawk! I really like the look of the various interwar era biplanes in the Chinese airforce colors.

@Lain and @Bob,

Yes, this suck!!!
The picture has a second hand with cote and water....
I will try the action wich Bob sugested....
Im so bad to loose this campaign...
In fact, I think that I need to repaint the aircraft and I will use the other decal option in the west front...
