There is more benefit, IMHO in running an SKGB on the older kits, which may have one or a few quirks, than the new-tool Zero or P-40. With a SKGB, you are all building the kit, and so you come up against the same issues, and different folks seem to either lead the way with a solution or else everyone solves it their own way that suits themselves, so at the end of the GB you have a great resource for people who want to build that kit in the future.
But yes, the P-40B looks a nice kit. I would have more interest in the P-40E, which has a few of those 'quirks' I mentioned (e.g. lack of cockpit detail!)

For it to work for me it would have to be a kit that's reasonably available. I can't get most older out-of-production kits here. Also, it would be very nice if a choice could be made in the next two weeks, as I'll be in Hong Kong (a.k.a. The Land of Hobby Shops) around Chinese New Year and can pick up the appropriate box of styrene then.
