Nice!
I have not gotten mine yet but soon will. 
Gents it looks like after all these years we finally have a top notch Tomahawk in 1/32 scale!!!

Now, can get convince Airfix to do a Tomahawk in 1/24?   or a P-36?

I have noticed that the RAAF in particular used a "double wide" belly tank.  I have not seen any USAAF or RAF P-40s using them.  One can assume that as the Japanese were pushed back, they needed more range.  As I recall the Aussies were pissed that they were given second line role...so much so that some of their top pilots resigned.

Special Hobby included a wide tank in the kit but they only made the tail end of the tank wider.  It's incorrect.
So I took a part from my spares box and modified it myself.  It was a belly tank from an old Hasegawa kit I built in the late 80s.

Here is a pic of the bad one included in the kit:



Now a pic of mine prior to primer and just before I added the "seam" around the circumference.  That was difficult.



Here it is with a coat of primer.  I'm trying to figure out what color to paint it.  Should it be an aluminum paint or neutral gray???

Be sure to post in-progress photos of your build once you get around to starting it!

The kit seems to be out now!
I'm sure I'll pick up at least one soon.

I have an old Micro Scale decal sheet with a 76 sq RAAF kittyhawk.
Here is an old thread about this plane:

Looks like you're off to a good start, Vince!  Have you decided on which markings for it?

I am amazed at the fit of the True Details sidewall parts which were designed for the old Hasegawa kit!
Seems more than a coincidence.




These are the resin wheels upgrade kit from Eduard "Brassin" line.
Beautiful fine detail that I hope I can preserve with some careful painting:


I also plan to use this old Eduard photoetch set also made for the Hasegawa.
It has some useful parts too.  I might do an open ammo bay just for a change of pace.
