  • op 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.
  • The cockpit detail and instrumentation is just as you would find in a full-size P-40 Warhawk is included in this model.
  • Stab halves assemble with self-aligning aluminum mounting tubes, and all control surfaces except the rudder are pre-hinged to speed up final assembly.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The wings are reinforced to help the landing gear withstand the impact of a less-than-perfect touchdown.
  • Close attention to detail is evident in the split flaps, which are ribbed just like on the full-size P-40.
  • 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.

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!
