    DescriptionThe 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.

    Review quote
    "Overall, this is a very welcome book which should be a great help in building any P-40 model... I'm always impressed by the work of Brett and the other authors and these builds should provide plenty of inspiration for other modellers of all abilities. The painting and weathering techniques illustrated have applications far beyond the specific subjects. Recommended." -Rowan Baylis, "AeroScale .".".I found this latest addition to Osprey Publications Modelling Manual Series to be a very exciting as well as an informative read, although I will say again that it is a book geared towards the more experienced modeler... I feel that it would make a fine addition to the modeler's library shelves, providing a good resource for the P-40 warbird and its variants, for any level of modelist." -Mark Smith, "AeroScale"
