"Good Value, Some Time & Patience Required"
aliporace
A good value for the money. Expect to spend time filling, sanding and trimming if you're picky about the finish model detail. For an older kit you can end up with a great looking Tiger Shark with some time and patience. This one won't give you the out-of-the-box seamless fits and detail of a Tamiya model for example, however you still can end up with a very good likeness of a true classic. Every collection needs a Tiger. I went with the AVG version and am quite happy with it. This one takes me back to model building as a kid, which is okay every now and again. After three straight Revell-Monograms, it's back to Tamiya or Eduard for the next one. Overall it is a fun build and I would recommend it.

"Nice value for money"
BlucherFamily (Overland Park, KS)
At the price this kit represents typical Revell value for money. The kit has sufficient detail to please most collectors, and the build is relatively easy and smooth, with clear step by step instruction. As is typical with Revell, there is some overflash here and there on the sprues, so a little clean up is needed. The fit of the parts is good, but does require some plastic putty and sand paper to hide the seams on the fuselage and wing. All in all you will be pleased with the result as it makes a handsome addition to any collection.

 
"An old mold, lots of problems"
jsaber09
This was the first kit I attempted after getting back into modeling after a 40 year hiatus. In theory it should be an easy kit to build, but it's not. The molds for this kit are quite old, at least fifty years, and there is a lot of areas where the fit is bad. Combine the poor fit with an inexperienced builder and it became a very frustrating build. The trouble spots for me were the fit of the wing root and the front of the aircraft around the guns, and the landing gear housing. The exhaust pipes are not supported well in the design, and at one point I picked up the model by the front and popped the pipes into the fuselage, and there is no way to get them out again. In short, I've seen people build this into a nice model, but it takes a lot of experience. But for a kid who is not that concerned with the fit, it's probably fine.

 
"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.

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.
