Tech Notes
    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.

FEATURES: Plastic pieces attached to sprues and molded in light grey. The exterior of the craft is complete with fully engraved panel lines. Sports a highly detailed cockpit interior. Super detailed engine gives the craft a great sense of realism. The craft is armed with machine guns that are carefully hidden in the 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.
