Product Description

This is a 1/72 Plastic Curtiss P-40B Tomahawk Model Kit from Academy Plastics. It's for ages 10 and up.

One of the most familiar aircraft of the Second World War was the famous Curtiss P-40. Originally flown in 1938, the first P-40 was actually a modified P-36 using an inline Allison V12 engine instead of the P-36's bulky radial type. This modification gave the US Army a craft that could compete with a Hurricane or a Messerschmitt. These were the planes that would become known as the British Flying Tigers.

Cool Flying Tiger
By kuririn111111111 August 9, 2015
Easy assembly, parts fit well. Option for landing gear down or up, and either a bomb or fuel tank under the fuselage. Complements my collector's plate well. Will upload a picture later.

Good, but very basic
By fosk September 16, 2016
Kit is from 1987 so its got a little age on it. Kit has 4 sprues molded in light gray and 1 clear sprue. Overall fit of the kit is not bad with the only problem area underneath where the wing meets the fuselage. Kit has engraved panel lines. Cockpit detail is really non-existent (decal for the instrument panel) which is fine since there is no option for an open canopy. The clear parts are a little thick but fit well. Options include a 500 lb. bomb or a fuel drop tank. Landing gear can be posed up or down. There are no paint call-outs either for the interior or exterior. Instructions have you use the picture on the box as a reference for painting. Decals, unfortunately, are typical Academy. Thick and non-responsive to most setting solutions. I used micro-sol, solva-set and even Tamiya X-20A, no effect. Some of the decals are a little out of register as well. With a little effort, it does make into a good little P-40. Really can't beat it for the price.

No putty, but sanded instead.
By Johnbycker October 24, 2016
This is a very good model. Considering the size & price; I would have to say this is a dog-gone good little model! Easy to build and the instructions came with 3 squadron variations and optional lander gear up or down. Very decent detail (again, considering the size). I would highly recommend this 1/72 scale. 5 1/4 x 6 1/8 (133mm x 157mm)
