I have an opportunity to buy a Heller 1/72 scale P-36, anyone know if this is an OK kit? It's a bit pricey for a 1/72 kit (when I factor in the postage) so I'd rather not buy a complete 'dog' which I will then never build!

I don't have the kit so have no personal experience with it, but based on this thread there seem to be better options than the Heller for a 1/72 P-36 kit:

Thanks for that - I'll give it a miss then. Might go for one of the new Airfix early P-40s instead.
