reviews the 1/72 scale plastic model aircraft kit
Numerous manufacturers have recently released kits of the Warhawk, with Airfix’s P-40B being the latest. Inside the sturdy box are three sprues molded in medium gray plastic, and a fourth sprue holding crystal-clear parts. Panel lines and details are deep and well defined, and the fabric effects on the rudder, elevators, and ailerons are subtle. Unfortunately, I did not realize that the rudder trim tab is only engraved on the starboard side until after I had glued it to the model.
