SCALE & KIT
The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk is an American single-engined, single-seat, all-metal fighter and ground-attack aircraft that first flew in 1938. The P-40 design was a modification of the previous Curtiss P-36 Hawk which reduced development time and enabled a rapid entry into production and operational service. The Warhawk was used by most Allied powers during World War II, and remained in frontline service until the end of the war. It was the third most-produced American fighter of World War II, after the P-51 and P-47; by November 1944, when production of the P-40 ceased, 13,738 had been built, all at Curtiss-Wright Corporation’s main production facilities at Buffalo, New York.
Really well done. I loved that the spinner was ablated along with the propeller blades. The amount of big bugs that live in the jungles would be tough on leading edges of the wing and tail oh and the windscreen too. Then add frequent rain showers hitting all the above at 150 mph to 350 mph. Its rough on the paint. But again, awesome work.
