Description

Up for sale is a brand new 1:72 scale RAF ROYAL AIR FORCE CURTISS P-40N TOMAHAWK FX760/GA-? (HA5507) by Hobby Master.

The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk first flew in 1938 as a modification of the Curtiss P-36 Hawk. Warhawk was the official U.S. designation while the name Tomahawk was used by the British Commonwealth and Soviet forces for the P-40B and C and Kittyhawk for P-40Ds and later variants. The P-40 was first used by British squadrons in North Africa and the Middle East in 1941. The P-40 lacked a two-speed supercharger making them inferior to German aircraft but was an adequate fighter in low altitude combat zones. Almost 12,000 P-40s were produced.

P-40N Kittyhawk c/n 9150M serial 43-23639 was delivered to the RAF and at first became FX760 GA-T and later GA-?, piloted by Fl/Lt Edward Ross who had the -? added. The aircraft was shot down by flak on August 21, 1944. The aircraft on display at the RAF Museum Hendon isn’t the original GA-?, it is a composite of several aircraft that have been assembled to make one P-40N and painted to represent GA-?. The fuselage is from P-40N 42-106101 built for the RAAF with serial A29-556.

This model air-plane is made from die-cast metal and plastic and include extensive detailing. It is similar in quality to Century Wings, Calibre Wings and Forces of Valor.

Includes display stand.
