The single-engine Curtiss P-40 took its maiden flight in 1938, and its fierce reputation continues to this day. Used by many Allied countries during WWII, its "Warhawk" nickname came courtesy of the U.S. Army Air Corps. After production ceased in November, 1944, 13,738 P-40s remained to fight in the front lines for the final months of the war. This exceptional Top Flite ARF comes loaded with scale details which will impress even the most discriminating warbird modelers.
Assembles in as little as 15-20 hours.
Built-up and sheeted wood construction, covered in flat-finish MonoKote.
The painted fiberglass cowl recreates the iconic "shark's mouth" design used by the Flying Tigers. A painted aluminum spinner also comes standard.
Gold Edition ARF warbirds are famous for their authentic details, and the Warhawk is no exception. A realistic, eye-catching cockpit is just one of the notable features ready for your favorite pilot figure.
The P-40 Warhawk includes durable fixed gear. For ultimate scale realism, install Top Flite (TOPA7955) or Robart® rotating air retracts (sold separately), which hide inside the P-40's fiberglass landing gear pods during flight.
Use the P-40's flaps to climb faster at takeoff — or to reduce speed and decrease the distance needed for landing.
Top Flite includes flat-finish decals seen on real WWII-era P-40 Warhawk aircraft.
The factory-applied MonoKote® trim scheme does more than capture the accurate colors of the original P-40 Warhawk. Its flat finish helps this ARF stay true to the look of a combat-tested fighter.
Drop in the O.S.® Engines 61FX (OSMG0561) for outstanding 2-stroke power – or install the O.S. Surpass™ FS-91S II (OSMG0896) for added 4-stroke muscle.
