Welcome to the forum. I can't believe you've made 16 of one kit, you must be able to make them blindfolded by now. Would love to see some photos of the P 40's, and looking forward to hearing and seeing more of you adventures in Airfix modelling.
Yes some of the new Airfix tooling or possibly some of the best in the world, the Dornier Do 17Z, Junkers Ju 87 Stuka and the Nakajima Kate's spring to mind. Personally I don't build bigger scales limiting myself to the "true scale" 1/72, an I see on this forum the new modern jets are also very impresive models. My one complaint with many new tooling is that crew members seem to be absent, and the aircrew sets are almost none exsistent.
I see the Bulldog is being re-released this year, this is a loverly little gem of a kit and still stands up well even against modern toolings. I seem to developing an interest for tween war aircraft and would love to see the 1930's Hawker Fury new tooling, make a good companion to the Gladiator and Bulldog.
