"Great Model for All Ages"
johncpo41 (www.hobbiesinabarn)
This kit was released back in the 1960s and still maintains it's place in any aircraft collection. There are finite problems with the fit of parts but nothing to discourage even a novice builder. The original is still standing up to the test of time. I have built two, one in the original U.S. Army olive drab and one in the well known famous Flying Tigers over China paint scheme as featured on the box. I highly recommend this kit for anyone with any level of skill.

"P-40 Tiger Shark"

This is probably one of the most recognized 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, head 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.

"P-40 Revell 1/48"
A quick to assemble kit with fewer than maybe eighty parts (?). Nice detail for such an inexpensive kit, as well as a nice collection of decals which enable you to make 3 different versions: Chinese Flying Tigers, British and pre-war US Army Air Corps. The few imperfections of fit were easily overcome with a small amount of putty and minor sanding.

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.
