Airfix Curtiss P40B 1/48 Kit

The P-40, in all its variants, served the United States Army Air Force throughout the Second World War, fightiing in Europe, across Asia and in the deserts of North Africa. The first model to see active service, the P-40B proved to be an effective and tough low level fighter. While not as maneuverable as the Japanese Mitsubishi Zero, or as fast as the German Messerschmitt Bf109, the P-40B still proved to be a tough opponent. Pilots liked the fact it could often get them home after sustaining heavy damage, as well as being able to inflict it with its armament of six machine guns. The P-40B also became synonymous with the shark mouth motif, due to both its use by 112 Squadron RAF and the American Volunteer Group in China.
