P-40 from PaperAirCraftWorks

This is a contiuation of my build thread from the other forum. I'm posting it here mostly because I can do it from the office. And because right now I'm waiting for a line of thunderstorms to clear out before scooting home.

Anyway here are some pics of this fine model. More will follow when I actually get it done.

Just couldn't resist adding gun flashes to the last pic (and making it my avatar for now).

P.S At lest some of you remember me from the other forum(s). For those who don't know me I live in New Mexico and have been doing paper models for a few years now with mixed results. This model may come out okay with some edge touchups and a bit of weathering to hide the other mistakes.

no, not the fillets - those are the things that go at the root of the wing against the fuselage. I am talking about the things that go over where the wheel come into the wing just inside the cannons, course I dont know my plane terminology all that well either.....
