P-40 Warhawk
Almost Ready-to-Fly Giant Scale Model

P-40 Warhawk

When Tigers ruled the skies.

Made famous by Colonel Claire Chennault's "Flying Tigers" squadron at the onset of World War II, the P-40 Warhawk had one of the most impressive kill-to-loss ratios of any Allied fighter plane. Equally impressive is Top Flite's IMAA-legal replica of the P-40, which utilizes Gold Edition engineering to capture the exciting details of this revered warbird in a great-flying ARF!
  • Built-up balsa and ply airframe with fiberglass cowl, belly pan and landing gear pods.

  • Exceptional scale flight characteristics using affordable and easy-to-maintain 43-55 cc gasoline engines.

  • Many scale touches that you won't find on any other giant-scale P-40 ARF!

P-40 Warhawk

Top Flite's Giant Scale P-40 Warhawk is modeled after a restored full-size P40E owned and flown by Rudy Frasca of Frasca International in Urbana, Illinois.
detailed cockpit

The cockpit detail and instrumentation is just as you would find in a full-size P-40 Warhawk is included in this model.
tail section

Stab halves assemble with self-aligning aluminum mounting tubes, and all control surfaces except the rudder are pre-hinged to speed up final assembly.
 
fiberglass cowl

The fiberglass cowl captures the lines of the P-40 perfectly. The iconic "shark mouth" nose art is painted on, and the exhaust ports are already in place. A scale-shaped, painted aluminum spinner is included.
Robart retracts

Heavy-duty fixed landing gear is included with this model. For the ultimate in authenticity, optional Robart® retract gear can also be installed. The gear bolts easily into place following the instructions provided in the model's assembly manual.
 
wing cutaway

The wings are reinforced to help the landing gear withstand the impact of a less-than-perfect touchdown.
ribbed split flaps

Close attention to detail is evident in the split flaps, which are ribbed just like on the full-size P-40.
 
4-view

The Flying Tigers was the most popular P-40 trim scheme, and it has been faithfully reproduced on this ARF using flat finish MonoKote® covering on the built-up balsa and ply sections and paint on the fiberglass parts.

The airfoil of this P-40 Warhawk model has been designed to virtually eliminate tip stalls – a problem usually associated with warbird models – so that with the flaps deployed it's relatively easy to land.
