Curtiss P-40 Warhawk (Tomahawk/Kittyhawk) Book Review

|Format||88 pages, softbound||MSRP (USD)||$22.95|
Curtiss P-40s remain perennially popular modeling subjects. And Kagero’s Curtiss P-40 Warhawk – the publisher’s tenth “SMI Library” installment – provides a colorfully convenient project handbook.
Also including “Tomahawk/Kittyhawk” variants, the compact compendium charts P-40 operational history over 88 well illustrated pages.
Principal coverage traverses USAAF, RAF, RAAF, RZAF service in the CBI, PTO and MTO – with Free French, Chinese and Soviet use briefly acknowledged, too.
The dual English-Polish contents sport over 110 B&W photos, 6 color shots and 18 color profiles. Janusz Swiation’s outstanding art certainly roused my modeling muse!
A set of adhesive USAAF insignia “mask foils” – scale unspecified – completes contents.
If you’re seeking inspiration for that next P-40 project, look here!
My sincere thanks to Casemate for this review sample!
