 P-40E-1 41-25164 - 1st Lt. John D. Landers, 9th FS/49th FG, Port Moresby, New Guinea, 1942
Aviation Archive. Another excellent model from Corgi's great P-40E mold. One oddity about the model is the tail wheel, which appears to be hand painted. Also, the prop is so colorful that the model looks better with the prop NOT turning than when it is.

Corgi pimples. Hornby has performed miracles improving the quality of the Corgi line, but every now and then a Corgi pimple pops up through the new Hornby skin. In this case, the pimple can be found in the cover illustration, where some sadly uninformed photographer mounted the spare fuel tank on the cowling instead of the belly. While the mistake is frankly hilarious, it does make one wonder why Hornby didn't fix it in the considerable available development time between the original announcement of this model and its actual release.
