I have found that building the P-40 out of cans presents some unique challenges no matter what templates you have at your disposal. The last one I built was Sky Captain's P-40B during which I used a custom rendered pattern to complete the model in 1/24th scale. It was a challenging build to say the least with a clear canopy and shark's teeth created out of solid colored can. And yes those wing fairings were fun to work out. I can only imagine the challenges you faced while building at a much smaller scale. Looks fine from here!

My P-40B from a few years back is in my signature
