"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.

"Our First 1/48 P-40 Filled a Crucial Gap in 1964"
mark.nickelson
In an era when Monogram was getting in serious about coverage, the Tomahawk and Hurricane were two major and much welcomed releases. Modelers are still gleefully buying these kits and (presumably) building them. If I had to make peace with this kit today, I would plate inside the fuselage near the aft wing mate, so the flaps didn't open into open space there. And I'd consider shouldering the wing-fuselage seam with some strip stock, because it has always been troublesome and flimsy. I've built this kit in desert pink, RAF, and USAAF on Oahu in December, 1941 schemes. I used the Nationalist Chinese decals on a Lindberg F-86. We should all appreciate its availability and its cost, trivial by 21st Century standards.

 
"Inaccuracy!"
clunymike
The discerning buyer may want to know that the markings are wrong. Plane number 14 in the AVG would have belonged to the 1st squadron which was the Adam and Eves. Rather than a red woman, it should have a green apple with a naked woman chasing a pilot (it's a depiction of the first pursuit for the first pursuit squadron. . get it?). The red woman was used by the 3rd squadron hells angels and I think their numbers began at 60. Also, AVG stands for American volunteer group, not All Volunteer Group. However, for $14 maybe it's worth it and you can build the USAAF or RAF versions. Maybe they're more accurate.

 
"Still a nice kit but definitely shows it's age"
Tommy
If you're new to modeling, then this kit is still a excellent option to start with. However, the molding definitely shows it's age (like this kit was originally made during the beginning of the Cold War). There is a lot of flash and some parts are warped. I don't think I used more putty on one plane model before this one. After some aftermarket PE sets, priming two coats, and several coats of Tamiya acrylics, this turned out nicely. Next to the newer kits from Tamiya, this plane will look and feel lackluster. But by itself, it definitely holds its ground. Some of the older kits from Revell aren't as bad in quality. I'm not sure why that's the case, but definitely search around before buying one. The same price can give you quality that's completely different.

Markings

  • #1: "4 8P", Stateside USAAF P-40B. Top: Olive Drab; Bottom: Neutral Grey.
  • #2: "KH o R", Royal Air Force, North Africa. Top: Dk Green/Dk Earth Camoflage; Bottom: Azure Blue.
  • #3: "14", All Volunteer Group (AVG) "Flying Tigers", China. Top: Dk Green/Dk Earth; Bottom: Sky.
