Well here's my planned build I loved the clean look of Zac's Kittywake from over on the P-40 GB

and I thought "Hmmmm that would look good on a F9F" so for the week build I'm going to do Hasegawa's 1/72 F9F-2 Panther up in similar livery.It's a simple scheme and I think that the clean lines of the panther would look quite good in it

Dude, thanks for the thought! Glad I could help.


Hehe...Lana saw the Kittiwake picture and said "That looks like a naval P-40....but there never were any, were there?"  :lol:


Nice build! Fantastic work dude! Still need to do a Kittiwake in Suez stripes, they just look so right on FAA camo!
