"For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty."

The P-40 fighter/bomber was the last of the famous "Hawk" line produced by Curtiss Aircraft in the 1930s and 1940s. It became the third-most numerous US fighter of World War II. Early combat missions pointed to the need for more armor and self-sealing fuel tanks. But this added weight which depressed performance. Curtiss added a more powerful version of the Allsion V-1710 engine, and two additional wing-mounted guns. Two more guns were added in the P-40E configuration. This version was used with great success by General Claire Chenault's American Volunteer Group (The Flying Tigers) in China.

The P-40E GMP has chosen to model was flown by Col. Robert Scott and shows the plane as it looked before he took command of the 23rd in China. He went on to become one of the greatest military pilots and commanders of all time. As a junior Army officer, Col. Scott won the Medal of Honor in World War II for beating back a Japanese counterattack in the battle for an airstrip in the Solomon Islands and killing 28 enemy soldiers, despite being wounded twice.

This P-40E model has so many features it will astound you. It comes with a pilot figure, 500lb. bomb, external fuel tank, wheel chucks, gloves and handling tools. You also get a detailed instruction booklet on all the features of the plane. If you thought GMP's P-51 was impressive then you ain't seen nothing yet. Features include sliding canopy with accurately detailed interior, removable top ammo doors with accurate drop in ammo box detail, opening access hatch, completely detailed engine with removeable side cowlings, functional rudder, wing flaps, opening underside gun doors with gun detail, and antenna wires. Unique with this model is the landing gear is automatic!! Press a small button on the underside of the plane to activate landing gear to emerge and while coming down, it rotates just like the real plane.
