Looks like the 1/32 P-40K is being re-issued

Recommended Posts

This kit contains tail parts for both the E and K variant. K has the larger (broader) tail with the fillet. I'm glad I bought a few of these when there first came out because they are hard to find. I ruined my K during construction, and it's been tough finding a replacment kit.

 

Cheers

So, since we are in P-40 land, is the Hase P-40 E the same as a Kittyhawk III??

 

Actually the "K" is the Mk III so snap this one up if that's what your looking for :speak_cool:

 

The "E" is the Mk 1A

Pretty much the E and K are the same aircraft except for the tail from the outside, there are some others like the exhaust stacks and such. Understanding P-40 variants is a interesting subject, lot of productions mixes. This kit comes with the parts you need to build both variants.

Is this the kit with the nice completely clear aft cockpit glazing?

 

You're probably thinking of the P-40N:

Unfortunately, Hasegawa released only a very small number of those kits as a "Limited Edition," and they're now nearly impossible to find.

I missed the boat on the "N."  Tried to order one through my hobby shop and they never did get it...then it was too late!

 

I do have the K and the M, though.  My E is already built.

 

Sure do need a replacement cockpit for the Trumpy B, though...

You can get the cockpit for the Trumpy B from Mike West @ Lone Star Models.

It's a really nice set.
