This detailed replica of the Curtiss P-40E Warhawk is decorated with dark green and brown camouflage scheme on the upper side, with grey underside. As well as the distinctive "shark mouth" nose art, similar to the Luftwaffe Messerschmitt Bf 110s, our aircraft also features the famous "Flying Tigers" artwork of this USAAF Fighter Group. The US Army lettering and blue and white emblems feature on the underwings and the blue and white emblem is also printed on the upper wings. The rear fuselage has a red band going right round the body in front of which is printed the number of the aircraft 108. Note the six gun barrels, a specific feature of the P-40E, three on each side of the front of the wings, finished in matt black.

Curtiss P-40E Warhawk

Designed to meet a USAAC requirement for a pursuit aircraft, the P-40 Warhawk was first flown on October 14th, 1938. This aircraft was tough, virtually trouble-free and saw continual improvements to arms, armor and engines. The P-40 served in numerous combat areas; often outclassed by its adversaries in speed, maneuverability and rate of climb, it earned a reputation for extreme ruggedness. Its strong construction, heavy firepower, and ability to dive enabled it to compete with enemy fighters, and it was a formidable ground-attack aircraft. P-40s were also flown by the famed Flying Tigers against the Japanese in China.
