Begemot 1/48 P-40

Begemot’s collection of Curtiss P-40s operated by Soviet forces is one of the most comprehensive works on a single type, containing decals for no fewer than 41 individual aircraft. It’s also available in 1/72 and covers early machines (P-40Bs, designated Tomahawk Mk.II) through to late-production (P-40N) versions, all operated from the Soviet Union during World War Two, although some are depicted following the end of hostilities. Red Star national insignia, airframe serials/ numbers, artwork and air-to-air victory markings are supplied on a pair of beautiful gloss-printed sheets; paler tones appear slightly translucent but register and brighter colours appear spot-on. The schemes cover a variety of camouflage finishes including factory-applied Du-Pont approximations of RAF Dark Earth/Dark Green, US Olive Drab/Neutral Gray and locally applied and winter whitewash liveries:
