Base Kit
1/72 Special Hobby P-40E

CMK has produced a very nicely detailed resin Allison V-1710-39 engine for the 1/72 Special Hobby P-40E kits. The supplied items include the engine block, parts to assemble the mounting frame, firewall, engine cover panels and radiator assembly. Although made for the Special Hobby P-40E kit, with some prudent sanding to fit, the engine set should be adaptable to any of the 1/72 P-40E kits currently on the market. I dry-fitted to my Academy example (see photos).

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.
