Curtiss P-40M Kitty Hawk

1/48th - HobbyBoss - ref.85801

P-40M, version generally similar to the P-40K, with a stretched fuselage like the P-40L and powered by an Allison V-1710-81 engine giving better performance at altitude (compared to previous Allison versions). It had some detail improvements and it was characterized by two small air scoops just before the exhaust pipes. Most of them were supplied to Allied countries (mainly UK and USSR), while some others remained in the USA for advanced training.

Well, if the paint guide reflects the shape of the kit, then the canopy is well off!

Looks like they've just scaled up the 1/72 quick kit and perpetuated the Academy canopy shape. :blink:

Mike. :hmmm:
