Scott Van Aken

Moving up a scale from the 1/72 set reviewed earlier, this is the 1/48 offering from BarracudaCast. they are superbly molded as you can see and will fit pretty much any 1/48 early P-40. Most of us will use these on the Airfix kit, but they are also good for the Monogram, Trumpeter and Bronco offering. In addition, they were used on a number of other aircraft such as  the Curtiss Hawk 75, USAAC P-36 series fighters, Seversky P-35, Curtiss O-52 Owl, North American O-47, Curtiss P-37 (an interim prototype), XP-40 (modified from a P-36 airframe), P-40E with smooth tread tires, and Kittyhawk I/Ia with smooth tread tires.
