P-40B/C Super Detailed Cockpit

Cutting Edge 1/48 P-40B/C Super Detailed Cockpit First Look

By Michael Benolkin

Date of Review December 2004 Manufacturer Cutting Edge
Subject P-40B/C Super Detailed Cockpit Scale 1/48
Kit Number CEC48481 Primary Media Resin

Skill Level Intermediate MSRP (USD) OOP

First Look

The Trumpeter 1/32 P-40B/C is not a bad kit, though it did suffer from a too shallow cockpit. Thanks to Cutting Edge, a new cockpit is available that corrects this deficiency. When Trumpeter released the same kit in 1/48th scale, they pantographed their existing kit down and brought along the same cockpit problems. Once again, Cutting Edge has come to the rescue.

P-40B/C Super Detailed Cockpit

This set replaces the molded-on cockpit details on the fuselage walls with new sidewalls at the correct depth and detail. These mate with the new floor (upper wing) surface, forward bulkhead, rear bulkhead, instrument panel, rudder pedals, control stick, hydraulic pump handle, seat and seat frame.

Cast in light gray resin, these parts require the removal of the interior details on the kit, but assembly is simple and instructions walk you though the process.

This is a nice update for the Trumpeter 1/48 P-40B/C, just as the larger 1/32 set dressed up the Trumpeter 1/32 P-40B/C kit.

My sincere thanks to Meteor Productions for this review sample!
