    Well this is an new review, about one of the most expected airplanes, the P-40 B.

    It´s true that you can made the Academy or Trumpeter one´s, but, I believe that you wi´ll prefer the Airfix.


    I believe that this is one of the BEST box art´s of the last years, in the really good looking new red boxes, well done Hornby!


    The kit comes in two sprues plus one for the clear parts.


    The level of detail is very good, in spite the (not so deep) trenches!


    The decals sheet comes with only one option, (the only that you need Wink )


    During the last years and with almost all the models, Hornby is trying to get back the good reputatión about airfix decals sheet, with a good research and a level of detail almost amazing (look at the tiger).


    The level of detail in the canopy is very good too.
    You got some detail inside the fuselage halves.


    Outside details for me are good enough, and about the trenches, I can live with them!


    You got floor details in a reasonably good cockpit.


    Good detail on wings with on scale .303 machine guns, probably you need new wheels...


    The complex air intakes are netlly reproduced, good wheel hubs and a I believe thin propeller.


    One of the most complex zones appears to be very accurate (wi´ll see).


    Usable seat



    I believe that this is one of the kit that I expected more, and to be honest, I'm not disappointed!

    Probably I buy two or three more, just to can use some of...


    This! next reviews!

    As usual courtesy of my wallet!

    Best regards

    Henry Ghisolfo
