Product Details

Overview

Made famous by Colonel Claire Chennault's "Flying Tigers" squadron at the onset of World War II, the P-40 Warhawk had one of the most impressive kill-to-loss ratios of any Allied fighter plane. Equally impressive is Top Flite's IMAA-legal, giant-scale replica of the P-40, which utilizes Gold Edition engineering to capture the exciting details of this revered warbird in a great-flying ARF!
