Curtiss P-40 Warhawk (Tomahawk/Kittyhawk)

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

By David L. Veres

Date of Review November 2015 Title Curtiss P-40 Warhawk (Tomahawk/Kittyhawk)
Author Tomasz Szlagor Publisher Kagero
Published 2015 ISBN 9788364596315
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!
