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:

Hopefully with the release of this kit, some new and different decal markings will be marketed as well.  I would like to see some more "Tomahawk" markings, such as Alan Rawlinson's  "SWEET FA" from 3 Sqn RAAF.

Thanks for posting! That's looking pretty promising and hopefully the cockpit is as good as the drawing. Hopefully the exchange rate isn't too bad.

This is going to be the Tomahawk kit I have been waiting for!
Not much longer to wait either.

I was pointed to Ian Bakers Aviation History and I have just finished the P40B masks.

An old article by Dana Bell in FineScale Modeler discusses the camo colors on later model P-40s (the 'D' and onward), as well as having a diagram of the standard scheme in 48th scale.  I've photocopied this scheme, cut it out, and used as a mask several times on my models.  If you are interested, I'll see if I can dig it up and email you a scan. Again, this was the standard scheme that came out of the factory for camo P-40s (not the Olive Drab over Neutral Grey), regardless of where the aircraft was destined for. 

IIRC, no P-40s planned for China were provided to 112 Sqn. If anything, the opposite could be argued, as the US took over some of the P-40s that had initially been earmarked as lend-lease aircraft.  Some of these ended up with the 49th FG, for instance. But I'm just going by memory at the moment so could be mistaken.

I have been checking most information on line. I did see a fuel system diagram which shows that this may well be the fuselage fuel tank drain valve (cap). That's my guess now. So, if someone finds  something different, please let me know. Thanks to everyone out there who looked.
