THE AIRCRAFT

The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk is an American single-engined, single-seat, all-metal fighter and ground-attack aircraft that first flew in 1938. The P-40 design was a modification of the previous Curtiss P-36 Hawk which reduced development time and enabled a rapid entry into production and operational service. The Warhawk was used by most Allied powers during World War II, and remained in frontline service until the end of the war. It was the third most-produced American fighter, after the P-51 and P-47; by November 1944, when production of the P-40 ceased, 13,738 had been built,[4] all at Curtiss-Wright Corporation's main production facilities at Buffalo, New York.


THE FLYING TIGER

The First American Volunteer Group (AVG) of the Chinese Air Force in 1941–1942, nicknamed the Flying Tigers, was composed of pilots from the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC), Navy (USN), and Marine Corps (USMC), recruited under presidential authority and commanded by Claire Lee Chennault. The shark-faced nose art of the Flying Tigers remains among the most recognizable image of any individual combat aircraft or combat unit of World War II.

    To be specific, the A.V.G. used the P-40B, whereas this plane isn't the "B" model.

    @Kaos I mean, you could try building this thing rather than being a **.

    @Kaos they look fine to me. I thought that you meant off-putting as in enemy pilots would be distracted in a scared way. But hey, nobody's perfect. I've never tried putting eyes on my planes, maybe it's harder than it looks to make scary ones

    @ThePilotDude They're supposed to look menacing, not like the shark is mentally challenged

    Amazing! I forgot to download this earlier, but now I get to appreciate this thing's full awesomeness! Takeoff is a bit sketchy but once she's in the air, it's incredible!
