VQ Models Curtiss P-40 Flying Tigers 61.8in Artf


SKU: VQA022C Category:

The Curtiss P-40 Kittyhawk was an American single-engined, single-seat, all-metal fighter and ground-attack aircraft that first flew in 1938. Famed for its shark tooth design the Curtiss P-40 Kittyhawk, or Warhawk and Tomahawk as it was also known, was used by the 'Flying Tigers', the American Volunteer Group in China.

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, after the P-51 and P-47; by November 1944, when production of the P-40 ceased, 13,738 had been built.
