"One of the best P-40C kits I've ever built"
blawhorne
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.

 
"P-40C by Academy 1/48"

I purchased this kit in March of 2020, when I decided to start model building again. I built it in 2020 also so this is a late review. The model was packaged very well the parts were of excellent quality and the instructions were very clear. it went together quite well very little over flash to trim. The pros with this kit are quality, instructions are clear, and the price is very good. I have no cons for this model at all. it was the second model I have done in over 40 years. Over all I was very pleased with the result.

 
"Solid Kit"

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.
