Forthcoming Releases

and P-40E Decal Preview



AMtech's 1/48 scale P-40E will be available online from Squadron.com


1/48 Curtiss P-40E Decal Preview


AMtech is a new manufacturer of high quality plastic model kits. Following their current release of the 1/48 scale Ta 183 will be a 1/48 scale Curtiss P-40E.

All kits have been tooled in Korea using steel and cast-beryllium hob molds, have engraved panel lines, etc. The four kits after the Ta 183, including the 1/48 scale P-40E, are versions of AMT/ERTL kits that have never been released, and AMtech is bringing them to market under license with AMT. A different grade of plastic is being used to mold these kits than that used by AMT/ERTL, which should greatly improve the quality of the kits.



The image at the top of the page is a preview of the decals to be included in the 1/48 scale P-40E set. The thumbnails below are low-resolution images of the marking instructions for the two USAAF, one RAF and one RAAF subjects included as options in the kit, plus some detail images of two of the decal subjects:
