CMK has produced a very nicely detailed set of cockpit sidewalls and control column for the 1/72 Special Hobby P-40/Kittyhawk kits. The supplied items include the left and right cockpit walls and separate control column. Although made for the Special Hobby P-40/Kittyhawk kits, this set should be adaptable to any of the 1/72 P-40/Kittyhawk IV kits currently on the market, for a smart upgrade to lackluster kit cockpits. I used mine in a Hasegawa P-40E example (see photos).

The panels and detailing are nicely molded from a 3D-printed master, with no flash or pitting. Framing and instrument detailing is fine on the walls, as is the supplied control stick.

Be sure to wash the parts in soapy water to remove mold release agents and prime prior to using your favorite modeling paints.

Highly recommended.

Thanks to the IPMS Reviewer Corps and CMK for the opportunity to review this item.
