The P-40 was the most popular fighter in US service at the beginning of World War 2. It was the P-40 that had to try and deal with the initial Japanese onslaught over Pearl Harbor and the Philippines and it went on to serve in almost every theater of action in World War 2. Although often outclassed in terms of speed, maneuverability and rate of climb, the P-40 earned a reputation for extreme ruggedness and survivability. This title details a range of differing modeling projects involving the P-40, emphasising the wide range of variants and color schemes. It also contains detailed listings of all the kits and aftermarket products available for this heavily modeled subject.
