  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."
