I started a thread awhile back about a project I was working on involving two 1/32 scale Revell P-40s a small Japanese truck and some figures. The plan was to combine the P-40s and make a kind of retro space fighter diorama with a hover truck, pilot, ground crew figure and a robot mechanic. I decided to follow the design of the F-82 Twin Mustang except the P-40 twin just has one cockpit. Well to make a long story short the family cat got into my work area and knocked the plane of of the shelf breaking it into several pieces. I finally got back to the diorama the last month or so and repaired the plane I'm happy to say it is back on track. I have a few pictures of my progress so far I have got the fighter painted but still need to weather it and finish up the hover truck and figures.

Well there does not seem to be much interest in this project here but here are the final pictures. The original idea was to build a P-40 version of the General Grievous fighter from Star Wars. I think now that it's more like something from Sky Captain and The World of Tomorrow. I picture a secret underground base somewhere in the desert disguised as an old run down airport. The home of the elite Spacehawk Squadron defenders of America from all unusual threats from space. The squadron uses the twin P-40X Spacehawk, the pilot has just landed and is discussing the performance of the fighter with his ground crew. The crew chief has arrived in a hover maintenance truck and is accompanied by a mechanic robot.

Nice job distressing the "truck". Looks used, abused, and greasy. Just what you would expect of maintenance vehicle during an air war.

I really like the look of the truck and especially the robot. Cool stuff! Seems to be a "mishmash" of various stuff and uniforms and such. :thumbsup:

It looks good, but why did you change the jet intake?
Thanks for all of the comments everyone, the original center engine was destroyed when the cat knocked the plane off of the shelf. I had to rebuild it from scratch so it got a redesign due to evil feline forces beyond my control.
