An all-metal fighter and ground-attack aircraft, the P-40 Warhawk was first seen in October of 1938. Only the P-51 Mustang and the P-47 Thunderbolt saw a greater production run, and the P-40 remained on frontline service with nearly every Allied military through the end of World War II. As the aircraft's high altitude performance could not match the premium Luftwaffe fighters, it instead played a significant role in North Africa and the Pacific.
Featuring two sets of authentic markings — including those for the 23rd Fighter Group and 154 IAP in 1942 — this 1/72 scale plastic kit replicates a P-40E Kittyhawk and features a glazed canopy, a well-appointed cockpit (with instrument panel details), a rotating propeller, a realistic undercarriage, and a centerline drop tank. Assembly required. 30 pieces. Skill level 1. Measures approximately 5½" long with a 6¼" wingspan.
