P-40 Drone-Hawk Custom Hull

Post by SPL85 » 20 Jul 2012, 00:45

Hey Guys,
Here are some pictures of my first custom hull.
Inspired by the Curtiss P-40 Warhawk!

I used Tamiya PS-17 Metallic Green for the Hull colour and purchased the Decal stickers on ebay.

Still currently a work in progress as i need to find some more stickers to go with it.

Hope you like :)

Just beautiful... jaw dropped when I seen this... walked around the shop and showed everybody and there's a chatter of conversation going around between the older guys and younger guys about the old war stories and hobby model making experiences... this is the perfect balance of stunning color and minimal decals to make the point... perfect job bro

There you go, the seller was very helpful with letting me know the dimensions. The shark mouth was a perfect fit for the nose.

If you are after pin up stickers just ebay search Lethal Threat stickers.

Here are some more pictures of my Drone i took today flying.
