Curtiss H-81 A-2 / Airfix 1:48

My latest model is the very nice P-40B kit from Airfix which is quite enjoyable to build. There are some panel lines that need to be filled in and a few things to be fixed here and there, but nothing major.

This is a the aircraft of David Lee "Tex" HILL of the AVG for which the decals were sourced from a vintage Aeromaster sheet. Exhaust pipes are from QB. Pitot, gunsight and barrels from Master.
Now that it is done, I must confess that I find the wheels ugly and that they would benefit from being replaced.
