NEAT KIT & PLANE
By nylonval February 25, 2013
This kit was easy to build over the week-end but applying those shark teeth was tricky ; just take yer time. Once in place those teeth gave the P 40 a dangerous look ! For the $ this kit is worth it !

P-40 Tiger Shark
By skippykeesler June 22, 2013
This is probally one of the most reconized aircraft of WW2,even my 6 year old grandson knows one when he sees it.This kit is a very simple build,but has extremely good detail especially in the cockpit.I built mine many years ago,but remember no construction problems.I am presently building one with my 13 year old grandson,he is building and I am trying to keep my hands out and teach him,haed to do.I still think this is a great kit,and I am thinking of building another,as I said mine is very old but has stood up well.I think I am going to build all of the Revelle/Monogram WW2 fighters again,need to take a break from the jets.I have fond memories of building these kits as a child,and young man.Almost gave away my age did,t I.This is a Good Kit.

A classic model of a famous WWII warbird
By pmmaker May 5, 2013
This is an older mold from Monogram, but it is still a good one. The model includes a well detailed cockpit which features an engraved instrument panel, molded ribs and controls on side walls, a detailed seat, control stick and flap handle, throttle controls, and a detailed pilot figure. Other features include operating wing flaps and the optic gun sight. For an old kit, the engineering is fantastic. The only filling and sanding I had to do was to the wing to fuselage gap. I was able to add exhaust staining through a slight application of Tamiya pastels. Painting was straight forward per the kit instructions. The only negative issue I encountered was a weakness in the landing gear struts. They could not support the weight of the model and I needed to strengthen them with a thin piece of stretched plastic sprue glued to the strut and wing. Intended for a builder in the intermediate skill level, this model can be modified into an outstanding representation of an iconic WWII warbird.

Simple
By 51c4r1u5d0m1nu5 February 15, 2014
This was the first model I've attempted since childhood, it was simple to put together, the decal for the wheels was a nice touch, meaning I didn't have to paint the small wheels. I did have a difficult time applying the shark mouth decal but once my practice grows I'm sure it would've been easier. I highly recommend this one to any beginners.
