σπάνιο μοντέλο, από τα ελάχιστα που υπάρχουν σε κλίμακα 1/24.
Πολύ λεπτομέρεια και μαγάλη δυνατότητα λόγω μεγέθους για super detailing.
Vintage Fighter Series 1/24 scale P-40B has the benefit of imposing size, plus some nice features including separate control surfaces, well detailed engine and excellent decals. The relatively simple parts breakdown, and lack of metal hinges should also ensure that the kit is not too difficult to build.
The most noticeable error - the shallow cockpit - is surprising because there has been so much discussion about this issue since the release of the Trumpeter kit. Some modellers will also want to address the deep panel lines, raised hatches and fabric texture, but I am sure that many others will be happy to build the kit straight from the box.
I suppose comparisons with Trumpeter's 1/32 scale P-40B are inevitable. In my opinion, the Trumpeter kit is better (more crisply) detailed, but the two kits are otherwise remarkably similar in features and approach - and even minor errors. Where they do differ, it generally seems to be a case of swings and roundabouts - for example, Trumpeter's rows of recessed rivets compared to Vintage Fighter Models' wide panel lines. Some modellers will prefer one approach to the other, but it is mostly a matter of personal taste.
In summary though, if you are a P-40 fan and have always wanted a 1/24 scale Tomahawk, you finally have the chance to build one.
