One of the best P-40C kits I've ever built
By blawhorne May 12, 2014
This P-40C was a great one. With extra parts for an option to convert this kit to Academy's classic P-36 Hawk, this Warhawk has great fit, recessed panel lines, and much more to surprise the recipient of this Academy delight.

Great Kit
By olszowka January 2, 2018
Just Finished Academy P-40C War Hawk Fun build all parts fit great, and the finished product is great looking. The Instructions was the only Problem It was just pictures with numbers to follow by, and there were extra parts that did not fit anywhere But It was still a great build. I would recommend this build

Solid Kit
By leesuper73 December 22, 2017
This is a solid kit with adequate detail and great fit. It doesn't have very many bells and whistles compared to other P-40 kits in regards to detail, but it's got enough to make it a joy to build. The pieces fit together well and very little post fit work needed to be done. I will probably buy this kit again.
