[size=15]Added this one a while ago and have since sold it off on eBay.  I just love the lines of the P-40N with the longer fuselage and the "cut-down" rear decking in the cockpit.  So happy HM is finally going to make one in a scale I like to collect.

When I saw this one on eBay for sale, at the time I just had to get it!  I remembered that I had seen a color profile in one of my "In Action" books.  Based on that plate painting, I can say that 21st Century did a very good job with the colors and markings:



The only modifications I made to the original model was to extend the white tail markings a bit further to the front on the plane's underside and added the wiring.  I also weathered the exhaust and wings a bit to make the plane look a bit used.  The model has no pilot figure.  I chose to leave the cockpit alone to better see the interior detailing.  

Overall a very nice P-40N in 48th scale.





Some close-ups to show the finer details:

21st Century made some great looking models. This one is no exception. It seems that these could come back as collectors get priced out of the die cast markets.
