    Hobby Master 1/48 Air Power Series HA9202 P-40B Warhawk White 155, 47th PS, 15th PG, Wheeler Field, Hawaii, Dec 7, 1941 The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk was an all metal, single-engine, single-seat fighter and ground-attack aircraft that made its maiden flight in 1938. Since the P-40 was a modified P-36 Hawk it was developed quickly and entered service in record time. The USAAF referred to the aircraft as the Warhawk while the British Commonwealth and the Soviet Union called the B and C variants Tomahawk while the D and later variants were called Kittyhawk. By the end of production in 1944 approximately 18,000 aircraft were manufactured. On December 7, 1941 during the Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor 2nd Lt. George Welch and 2nd Lt. Kenneth Taylor raced back to the airfield and managed to get their P-40s airborne against overwhelming odds. The P-40s were armed only with 30 calibre wing guns and when that ran out they returned to refuel and rearm with 50 calibre ammunition and renewed their airborne efforts. 2nd Lt. Kenneth Taylor scored 2 victories shooting down two Aichi D3A Vals. They both received the DSC. 1/48 scale pre-finished Die-cast metal with a minimum of plastic. Professionally painted. All markings pad applied for superb results. Cockpit slides open. Comes with a pilot that can be removed. Comes with display stand. Can be displayed with landing gear up or down
