Product Description

The Curtiss P-40 "Warhawk" fighter was America's best when World War II began. In 1941, P-40's engaged Japanese aircraft during the attack on Pearl Harbor. They were used in the Pacific for much of 1942. They also were flown in China early in 1942 by the famed Flying Tigers and in North Africa in 1943 by the first A.A.F all-black unit, the 99th Fighter Squadron. The P-40 served in numerous combat areas: the Aleutian Islands, Italy, the Middle East, the Far East, the Southwest Pacific and some were sent to Russia. The P-40 was not able to operate above 15,000 feet because it lacked a supercharger. Though often outclassed by the Axis fighters in speed, maneuverability and rate of climb, the P-40 earned a reputation in battle for extreme ruggedness. At the end of the war, more than 14,000 had been produced for service in the air forces of 28 nations.

About this Handcrafted Wooden Model Aircraft:
This beautiful handmade airplane model is an authentic replica made from the finest grade of select kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. The model is made entirely by hand: From the handcarving of the aircraft fuselage, to the sanding of the aircraft's contours. Every part is assembled precisely into place. After shaping and sanding, the model passes through several stages of priming and sanding before it is hand painted to duplicate the actual colors, emblems, and insignias of the original historical aircraft. Finally, multiple coats of clear lacquer are applied to protect the artwork and provide an overall glossy finish.
