P-400 Airacobra - 41st FS, 35th FG, 5th AF Milne Bay (Hasegawa 1/48)

With the recent release of the new P-400 tool from Hasegawa, I decided to continue my run of WWII aircraft. As you would expect this kit is worth the A$40. I deviated from the kit build (and markings) where I thought it would benefit the end result. The main addition was the extended flaps and I found a much more interesting P-400 paint scheme in the Eduard Profipack kit (Sand & Spinach I have been told by a reliable source) than the brown/green options provided by Hasegawa. The build of this model (106 photos) is documented in the "On the Bench" section or just click here
