Ultracast has returned to seats for its next batch of new releases. This time it is doing seats for the early P-40, specifically the B/C versions. The header card states it is suitable for all USAAF P-40s prior to mid-1942, so I take it that this is also suitable for early P-40Es and all P-40D versions. This seat has a rounded back and has the seat frame molded in place. Thanks to their excellent engineering, these bits can be easily removed with a sharp hobby knife. No kit is specified, but I'm thinking it will probably fit all of them without too much worry. As usual, the casting is first rate and will make for a nice addition to your next P-40.
