"Beautifully manufactured kit, would build again in a second."
rgsayre
This kit was an absolute pleasure to build. Cons; it had a couple ejector pin marks but they were not in critical locations and cleaned up easily, there was a total of 1 sink hole and that filled in just fine, the exhaust manifolds were the only significant draw back for me. The fit of the two halves for each tube was not good. It would be fixable but with a significant amount of reshaping and seam line removing on what are very small parts. I wasn't willing to go that route so I got some resin aftermarket exhausts then I ended up trimming them off the sprue too short and installing them so they don't even stick out of the fuselage exhaust cutout HA, serves me right right? I should have just bit the bullet and spent the time working the ones that came with the kit. Otherwise the kit was magnificent. I strayed from the supplied markings and recommended paint job to build an AVG Flying Tiger version. I'm very tempted to buy this kit again and build the 1941 18th Pursuit Group version that is supplied with the kit. For a $40 kit the cockpit has incredible detail with knobs, levers, wheels, gauges and seat belts. This was my first Trumpeter build but won't be my last.

"P-40B/C Tomahawk"
abbattior199091
I was glad to see a large scale kit of an early P-40 released but my enthusiasm was tempered with disappointment at some serious errors by Trumpeter. The worst of all is that the cockpit is not deep enough and shows in the undersized seat and short sidewalls. This was because they forgot that the top of the wing was the cockpit floor in early P-40's. I used the Eduard photo-etch corrected cockpit set which has a dimensionally correct seat and sidewalls and a wider cockpit floor. The stabilizer/elevator hinge line is also incorrect as well as the upper rudder hinge point. The removable cowl top is kind of useless because you don't see much of the engine and the blast tubes of the cowl guns make it almost impossible to remove anyway. I believe that Aires and Black Box made corrected resin cockpits if you don't like messing with photo-etch. I finished my model as Lt. George Welch's plane as it appeared on December 7th, 1941. Welch was one of four pilots that managed to get airborne and take the fight to the enemy.

 
"P40B Warhawk from Trumpeter Models"

There are only two Plane model makers I ever buy from, Tamiya and Trumpeter. The Trumpeter models give a good representation of military planes. The P40B Warhawk is a great example. This model from Trumpeter has good clean plastic parts that are easy to identify and easy to build. Great Job Love Hobbylinc
