Giant-Scale sport-scale P-40 Warhawk
R/C model kit Price: $330.00
With the Jack Devine P-40 model, much
of the work has already been done for you. Imagine opening the box and finding a
fully-formed foam frame waiting there for you! You won't have to imagine
what your model is going to look like framed up. The frame is done, the
shape is already complete! All that's left to do is follow the easy video
instructions for capping, sheeting, and installing some hard points like a
firewall and landing gear blocks, and your model is ready for gear and
finish! Once you look at it you'll realize with a P-40 this size just how
quickly you can be in the air compared to a stick-built model. There's
just no comparison in building time, a Jack Devine model builds faster every time!
The Curtiss-Wright P-40 Warhawk
was considered to be a successful aircraft by the U.S. Government, despite being
outclassed by the Messerschmitt 109 and the Focke-Wulf 190. Smart pilots
capitalized upon the P-40's low-altitude maneuverability and toughness, and
learned ways to win even against newer, faster planes. When the Tuskeegee
airmen first flew in North Africa, they flew the P-40 Warhawks until they
received their famous P-51 Mustangs, and with the lessons they had learned
flying the P-40 Warhawks, they went on to fly their Mustangs into history.
Perhaps best known for the shark's
mouth version flown by the Flying Tigers in the China Theatre, the P-40 earned
its reputation time and again for its toughness, and not only bringing their
pilots home, but making the kills as well. One of the most famous warbirds
ever produced, to be sure!
"Weight Barrier" that has existed between modelers and great flying
warbirds for so long!!
The P-40 is an excellent choice for
modelers who want to fly a warbird, because of the generous wing area of the
full-scale P-40. This also makes the Jack Devine P-40 Warhawk a terrific scale
endeavor, as our foam-core technology combines lightness with light wing
loading, allowing a lot of scale additions! It is designed and cut to very
scale dimensions, so this sport-scale giant will not only fly well, it's a real
eye-catcher with its true-to-scale silhouette. You just can't help but
look good at the field!
It comes with our instructional video to help you
build it easily. The video guides you through the
capping and sheeting of all foam pieces, and the gearing up for hardware,
mounts, etc. Are you wondering about the processes involved? This
website also has building articles filled with a variety of tips and techniques
to help answer many of your construction questions, both now and after you start
building your Jack Devine model!
