Description Extended Information
 
Armour Collection B11B626 French Armee De L'Air Curtiss P-40F-5 Warhawk Fighter - Commander Constantin "Kostia" Rozanoff, "MadKot", Operation Lafayette, Morocco, November 1942 (1:48 Scale) "Why should we have a navy at all? There are no enemies for it to fight except apparently the Army Air Force."
- General Carl Spaatz, Commander of the US 8th Army Air Force, after WWII

The P-40 was the best known Curtiss-Wright designed airplane of the Second World War. It was also one of the most controversial fighters, vilified by many as being too slow, lacking in maneuverability, having too low a climbing rate, and being largely obsolescent by contemporary standards even before it went into production. The inadequacies of the P-40 were even the subject of a Congressional investigation after the War ended.

While these criticisms were certainly valid, it is also true that the P-40 served its country well, especially in China and Burma, during the opening phase of the War in the Pacific when little else was available to the US Army Air Corps. Along with the P-39 Airacobra, the P-40 was the only American fighter available in quantity to confront the Japanese advance until more modern aircraft could be delivered to frontline squadrons.

This particular 1:48 scale replica of a P-40 Warhawk was flown by the French Armee De L'Air and piloted by Commander K. Rozanoff. Sold Out!
