NOTES FROM OUR TECH DEPARTMENT
This is a 1/72 Curtiss P-40E Kittyhawk 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-40E gained fame through its use by Gen Claire
Chennault's Flying Tigers in China but the aircraft also saw service across the
globe from Alaska to N. Africa.
