Curtiss P40 Warhawk 50
The Curtis P-40 Fighter Bomber with the distinctive shark mouth painted on its nose was one of the most recognizable during World War II. Used by the Army Air Corps and the United Kingdom, this famous aircraft exceeded 300 mph with the 1360 HP Allison engine and eventually the Rolls Royce with more improvements to the airframe. The Kyosho P-40 is an “E” model sporting six 12.7mm wing mounted cannons of which 2,320 were produced.
Kyosho now produces this famous fighter/bomber with a precise factory assembled balsa and light ply main fuselage, tail feathers and wings. All surfaces are expertly covered with a strong lightweight covering. The covering material is applied in layers to replicate the unique camouflage pattern with decals already applied for you. Noteworthy is the rounded shape of the fuselage and the concave rear cockpit windows. The attention to detail carries through to the fiberglass cowl and is painted to match the fuselage colors.
