Here are some images of my wife Dana's first model.

It is the Hobbycraft 1/48th scale P-40B done as R.T. Smith's No. 77 of the AVG.

The kit was built out-of-the-box and finished using Polly Scale paint (hand brushed). Decals were a combination of Aeromaster, kit and from the scrap-box.

As my wife was working on this project, I built Chuck Older's Hawk 81A.

Dana has caught the bug, and we are now doing 1/48th scale Sea Furies together.
