Has Airfix released a date when it is to be released?

Airfix's website shows 9/15/16

That's not good news about Trumpeter that they're not even going to fix some of the glaring errors, I wonder how well it will sell?

Let's hope Trumpeter learned from their past mistakes and come out with a great P-40 this time.

Apparently this is not the case. From what I understand now, Trumpeter is using the same sprues but just throwing them in another boxing....at least this is what's being related on the Hyperscale forums. So, "new box" is more apt a description rather than "new tool."

I've gone ahead and pre-ordered a couple of Airfix kits.  It sounds like they will be hard to get one's hands on, at least outside of the UK, after the initial batch is released.

Completely agree, it's inexcusable for Bronco to screw up the cockpit like that just like Trumpeter did 10 years ago and later with their 1/48 version.

I've never been big on placing a model over plans unless it shows massive shape issues, who knows if those drawings are accurate, most of the P-40 drawings I have differ. But shape issues on things like the canopy where there is so much photo documentation is also inexcusable.

It also looks like the wheel discs are way too large.

It's not a cheap kit, and you could easily double it with aftermarket items. I will also be passing on this one and will wait and see what the Trumpeter & Airfix look like as well as their price. The Monogram kit with an aftermarket cockpit like the True Details would be a much better & cheaper option than the Bronco.

I had just logged on to provide this link for the review by Brett Green and saw Brad already has done so.

I must admit, from Brett's review, that I am disappointed with Bronco's kit.  I can understand "accuracy" issues, in regards to getting the proportions and shape completely accurate.  Photographs and drawings can be misleading, and there aren't a whole lot of Tomahawks remaining out there to go and measure.  But the fact that Bronco completely screwed up the cockpit, exactly as Trumpeter did, is in my opinion completely inexcusable.  Trumpeter's truncated cockpit has been an issue on modeling forums since Day One of its release (and rightly so), and for Bronco to have not been aware of this in our modern age is mind-boggling. 

So, I for one will pass on Bronco.  From what I've seen, it's not an inexpensive kit, not to mention having to spend even more for a decent aftermarket cockpit.  Instead I will await Airfix's release, hopefully later this year, which I have not doubt will be a better kit for less cost.

Interesting. Kind of like when a Lowes is built right next to a new Home Depot!

The original tool trumpeter sucked bad.

We will see which is best. Looks like airfix will be great.

Bronco has announced one as well.  Here is a link to some information and sprue shots, albeit the text is in Chinese (?):

Also, Trumpeter has announced a "new tool" on its Facebook page. It will be interesting to see how it differs from Trumpeters original release:
