This P-40E Warhawk Airplane is a replica wood scale model of the original P-40 “Flying Tigers” aircraft manufactured by Curtiss. The P-40 is a single engine, and single seat fighter and ground attack aircraft flown during WWII. This version has the paint scheme from the First American Volunteer Group, the Flying Tigers. The P-40 Warhawk was the 3rd most manufactured aircraft during WWII where 13,738 were built.
The P-40 Warhawk model is an authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft that has been faithfully reproduced with kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously carved, hand sanded and painted following exact blueprint details of the original aircraft. The result is a handsome, wood airplane sculpture to be admired and enjoyed. It also arrives with an attractive wood base for display.
