The P-40 (or Hawk 81) was a development of the earlier Hawk 75 and was the USAAF's most advanced fighter at the outbreak of WW2. It's biggest weakness was the lack of 2 stage supercharger for it's engine, meaning it's performance was poor at higher altitudes. It was however, tough, well armed had a decent performance at lower and medium levels, where, if well flown it, could hold it's own against the Bf109 or A6M Zero.  It was also used in the ground attack role, especially when superior fighters were available. 
It served from early in the war right to the end of the war with many Allied Air Forces, including the RAF, RAAF and Russian Air Force as well as the USAAF, compiling a very useful war record despite being a much underrated aircraft.
This is Airfix's excellent new tool Hawk 81 kit. The kit is highly detailed with engraved panel lines and comes with markings for a plane from the famous AVG 'Flying Tigers'
