I just wanted to share my progress on a Curtiss P-40E Kitty hawk I've been working on.
Just discovered MOCpages has ceased to be, so starting a page on brickset now. Hope this is a similar type of community.
I made the first design about 6 months ago, with left over parts.
Once I was happy with the structure, I bought the khaki and dark green panels to create a rudimentary camo scheme.
Next steps are to:
- connect the flight surfaces to a steering mechanism behind the cockpit
- think about retractable landing gear
- add an optional S motor on the belly to drive the prop.
- create stickers (laminated colour prints) for the sharkmouth and flying tigers emblems.
(the left flap about to fall off on this picture. It needs reinforcement.)
I might add more grey to the bottom. I think a layer can still be attached. The black parts behind the guns provide the dihedral angle)
Hoping to get a final version by June!
