This Special Hobby 1/72 kit is a real gem.  They are accurate and appear to be easy to build as well.



Of course, I should do it out of the box and avoid...well avoid being me!
But I have already started fiddling.
I have a couple of the True Details cockpit kits for the old Hasegawa kit.
Look how closely it matches the kit sidewalls.  Also they are much thinner.
Should be easy to get them to fit!

I've built the "E" and feel these new Special Hobby kits are the best P-40 kits in any scale for exactly the reasons you mention.  I wish Special Hobby would re-tool its "F/L" kit, which is definitely earlier-generation and not nearly as refined.

I also have some of those earlier P-40F/L kits from SH.
You are right...they are not bad but the nose is still not quite right.
No model kit has ever gotten that right.
I have plans to do a resin nose for these new Special Hobby kits.
That is...whenever I get more spare time...   Ugh...
