Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Overall, this is a very welcome book which should be a great help in building any P-40 model... I'm always impressed by the work of Brett and the other authors and these builds should provide plenty of inspiration for other modellers of all abilities. The painting and weathering techniques illustrated have applications far beyond the specific subjects. Recommended." -Rowan Baylis, AeroScale

"...I found this latest addition to Osprey Publications Modelling Manual Series to be a very exciting as well as an informative read, although I will say again that it is a book geared towards the more experienced modeler... I feel that it would make a fine addition to the modeler’s library shelves, providing a good resource for the P-40 warbird and its variants, for any level of modelist." -Mark Smith, AeroScale
