RARE P-40 WARHAWK !

FRANKLIN MINT P-40 WARHAWK B11B621!

THERE IS A FACORY PAINT FLAW ON 1 BLADE OF THE PROP. IT FEELS ROUGH. I THINK I WOULD SAND IT A BIT, THEN USE SOME BLACK PAINT. IT REALLY IS MINOR, BUT IT IS THERE. THIS IS THE VERY RARE, FRANKLIN MINT USAAF, P-40 WARHAWK, LT. BILL DAYS' "DAMMIT", AS FLOWN IN OPERATION TORCH!

THIS GREAT WWII PLANE MEASURES ABOUT 8" LONG AND HAS A 9" WINGSPAN!

THE P-40 IS AN UP-GRADE TO THE CURTISS P-36. THE FIRST PROTOTYPE OF THE P-36 FIRST FLEW IN THE SPRING OF 1935.

A SINGLE SEAT FIGHTER AND FIGHTER/BOMBER, THE P-40 HAD THE "NEW" 1,200 HP ALLISON ENGINE WHICH WAS AN UP-GRADE FROM THE PRATT & WHITNEY ENGINE. THIS GAVE THE P-40 A TOP SPEED OF 343 MPH, AND INCREASE OF 32MPH OVER THE P-36.

THE ARMAMENT WAS UP-GRADED AS WELL, THE P-40 NOW BOASTED, 6 - .05 INCH FORWARD FIRRING MACHINE GUNS IN THE WINGS, AND A BOMB LOAD CAPACITY OF 1,500 LBS! IN ALL THERE WERE OVER 9,800 P-40'S BUILT INCLUDING ALL THE VARIATIONS!

I TOOK OUT OF THE BOX ONLY TO TAKE THE PICTURES.

BE SURE AND ADD THIS GREAT, HARD TO FIND P-40 WARHAWK TO YOUR COLLECTION!
