Replicating Texas Longhorn, the P-40 Warhawk flown by 14½-victory ace 1st Lt. John Landers (who went on to fame flying the P-51 Mustang "Big Beautiful Doll" as commander of the 78th Fighter Group) of the 9th Fighter Squadron, 49th Fighter Group, when he was stationed at Port Moresby, New Guinea, in December, 1942.

A recent addition to the collection. What can I say? Just another great P-40 by Corgi.

Highly Recommended.

This one has been out for a while, right? I have this in my collection. A nice looking P-40!

It is a nice model.  I had this one but I finally was able to sell it off on eBay.  I've just outgrown Corgi's "trench warfare" panel lines.  I know it's their "house style", but I no longer like it.  Now that I've chosen to build more kits than go the "Corgi" die-cast buy route, I've become more accustomed to and like smaller, thinner, and more obscure panel lines on my models.  Just a personal preference.

I understand. I guess to some people's eyes, the heavy panel lines are needed to make them visible. Sort of exaggerated to show detail, even though it is rather extreme.

I guess it is an older release. I do have it. You had one and sold it, so it has been out for a while.
