When British Ace Neville Duke served with No. 112 "Shark" Squadron R.A.F. he flew a Curtiss "Kittyhawk" fighter, designated P-40E by the U. S. Army Air Corps. Our model is a reproduction of this famous flyer's famous plane.
The basic Curtiss P-40 design of 1937 was a development of the earlier P-36 "Mohawk," modified to accommodate the then new liquid cooled, "V" twelve, General Motors AIlison engine. Built for low altitude operation and ground attack duties the P-40 was extremely rugged but no match in overall performance to such other contemporary fighters, as the Messersenmitt 109 and Mitsubishi "Zero."
