Trumpeter 1/32 P-40F
Posted by mic53mlb on Friday, November 11, 2022 11:11 AM

Hey guys,

      anyone built Trumpeter's 1/32 P-40F ?? I've seen the box art and if the kit is like the art it doesn't look correct. Anyone that can shine a light/share info on this is greatly appreciated.

What's wrong with the box art? Haven't built that kit myself, so I can't answer as to the kit itself.

I'm a big P-40 guy, specifically the E and the F. Trumpeter can be wishy washy sometimes, I was looking for feedback before I pulled the trigger. I have the old AMT/Ertl 1/48 F I bought at a shop closing that I think lawdog built into a nice model years ago. I would like a larger scale subject as it is a favorite.

The Cybermodeler review of the F version is pretty bad.  That wouldn't necessarily scare me off the kit.  Not the version your looking for but I think Great Wall make a 1/32 P40 and although hard to find Eduard has the N in 1/32.
