The P40, in its various incarnations, served in the United States Army Air Force throughout the Second World War, fighting in Europe, across Asia and in the deserts of North Africa.  The first model to see active service, the P40B proved to be an effective and tough low-level fighter, able to withstand heavy enemy fire and bring its pilot home safely.

Everyone loves a shark mouth

This kit offers good value for money and was fun to build. The decals were great and the shark mouth was well thought out. Unusually for a new Airfix kit I chose not to give it five stars for the following reasons: 1. The fit around the wing root was not as good as recent Airfix offerings. 2. I built the 1:72 Mustang before this and the Mustang has more options and is a better fit. Don't be put off by the three stars. It is a great kit, just not as good as some other similarly priced Airfix kits.

Tomahawk IIb starter set

A really great kit. It goes together well, and looks good. Undercarriage legs are delicate, so be careful. Shark mouth decal is tricky to apply, but worth taking time over as it makes a huge contribution to the appearance of the finished article.

Great Starter Kit

A beautifully engineered kit with a few construction options (not that common for basic kits). Builds well. Being a small starter set there are only 4 paint colours and some simplification of colour scheme is needed. An expanded paint scheme for people with the paints would be useful in these sets but the key colours are there so enjoy.
