1/48 A.VG. Hawk 81a-2, (P-40C).

This is the Airfix P-40B/Hawk 81 kit. The Hawk 81a-2 was an export model created for the RAF that was roughly equivalent to the P-40C, minus the drop tank plumbing. The A.V.G. (Flying Tigers), was equipped with these. This is the second [...]

Curtis Hawk 81

A nice little Flying Tiger from Airfix. The soft plastic made the removal of the small bits from the tree a bit tricky. But with extra care I had no mishaps. On the other hand, as careful as I tried to be, I still ended up breaking off two [...]

Shark! 1/32 Great Wall Hobby Curtiss Hawk H81

Merriam Webster Dictionary says: ICONIC - adjective: "Widely known and acknowledged, especially for distinctive excellence". I guess few would argue that the shark-faced Curtiss P-40's of the American Volunteer Group do not fit [...]

Curtiss P-40E Warhawk

A few months ago, Greg Kittinger @gkittinger invited me to his home where he had a collection of kits someone in his model club had inherited. He kindly gave me the chance to pick some of them I wanted. This Revell 1/32 P-40 is one that I [...]

Revell 1/48 P-40b AVG Flying Tiger

I picked this up in the clearance section of Hobby Lobby for $4.99- Overall it was a smooth build with few problems. Given what I paid for it, I think I got the most out of this classic. I think from a shape perspective it looks just as [...]
