Description Extended Information
 
Easy Model EM37206 Soviet Curtiss P-40B/C Warhawk Fighter - 154th IAP, Soviet Naval Aviation, 1944 (1:72 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 front line squadrons.

Pictured here is a 1:72 scale replica of a Soviet Curtiss P-40B/C Warhawk fighter that was attached to the 154th IAP, Soviet Naval Aviation, during 1944. Sold Out!
