    1/24 VFS Kenneth Taylor's P-40C (not OOB!!!!)

    Post  Alex Kontiveis on Fri Aug 07, 2009 9:14 am

    Hi guys,
    This is not a burger...but a main dish! 9 months spent for building it. Whoever doesn't know the VFS kit, is for rubbish. Completely wrong, inaccurate, fat detail (wherever exists). But I love P-40s!
    Inspired from Pearl Harbor movie, I began my research on P-40B/Cs. Too many time, spent for documentation. Everything you see, is 100% accurate.

    Believe it or not....8 pieces used from the whole kit...



    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------











    Many Thanks to Guillermo Bazan, Brian Cauchi and Rodney Williams for their various help.

    TAKE A LOOK at my construction step by step. Hundred of pics (be patient pls) explain everything. It Worths.

    Yes, I know him (not personally). He is not the only one. Many good figurers rock hard also! We have a member who builds the battle of Thermopile in 54mm. 260 figures, Spartans and Persians.
