NOTES FROM OUR TECH DEPARTMENT
This is a 1/72 Curtiss P-40M/N Warhawk Plastic Model Kit from Academy.

The Curtiss P-40 was the only USAAF fighter available in quantity when the US
entered WWII in 1941. By that time, the aircraft was almost obsolete compared
to its adversaries, but soldiered on throughout the war as various improvements
were made in its design. The P-40M and N variants were the last production
models and were developed in an attempt to overcome some of the performance
deficencies of the aircraft. The P-40N in particular underwent a major program
of weight reduction, and as a result was the fastest and most agile of the P-40
series. The N-model also featured improved rear visibility through a
redesigned rear canopy. Both the M and N models served with the USAAF and its
allies in WWII: Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

59 parts in light grey and clear with fine recessed panel lines.
