Notes from our tech department:
This is a 1/48 Plastic P-40C Tomahawk Model Kit from Academy Plastics.
It's for ages 10 and up.

The P-40C Tomahawk is an early model of the Curtiss Wright P-40 series.
The first flight of the Tomahawk was on April 10, 1941. It was equipped with
a new fuel supplying system and much more advanced radio equipment. Of the
16,802 P-40s, 1,705 of them were the "C" type. Currently, only one of these
historical craft has been restored and is being kept in flight condition.

The exterior of the craft is complete with fully engraved panel
lines.

forward-facing tip of each wing.
Carefully designed landing gear is an exact replica of the real
thing.
Detailed pictorial instructions guide you through assembly.
