P-40E Kittyhawk Mk.Ia 1/72 Die Cast (AC009)


Flying Officer Neville Duke, No. 112 Squadron, 1942 flew this Spitfire MK.I.

The Curtiss P-40 was an American, single engined, single-seat all metal fighter and ground attack aircraft. Built by the Curtiss-Wright Corporation, Buffalo, the aircraft first flew in October 1938. The Kittihawk was the P-40D variant, following on from the Warhawk and Tomahawk. The Kittihawk was used to best advantage during WWII by the Allied air forces in North Africa, the Southwest Pacific and China.

This model, which comes complete with display stand, takes on the desert camouflage as used in the Mediterranean and North African operations, where the aircraft was flown by the prominent WWII flying ace, Neville Duke. Squadron Leader Neville Duke was the top Allied flying ace in the Mediterranean Theather, where he shot down at least 27 enemy aircraft. After the war, he became known as one of the world's most successful test pilots, flying for the Hawker Company. At one time he held the world air speed record flying a Hawker Hunter F Mk3 at 727.63 mph along the south coast of England.
