The P-40 Warhawk saw action in many theatres in WW2, including the Mediterranean, North Africa and the Pacific where it was used as both a fighter and more successfully as a ground attack aircraft. Most famously, the P-40 was used by the Chinese Flying Tiger squadron flown by US pilots, the success of this squadron against the Japanese airforce in China, even against the feared Zero, made them household names around the world.
This P-40 Warhawk is simply huge for a foam model! Being EPO, it is as tough as you would expect but at the same time, the moulded detailing is simply amazing. Despite it's size, this Warhawk should be easy to transport with it's removable 1pc wing and removable tailplane. The plastic moulded part details, like the very scale exhaust stubs, 3 blade prop/spinner, bomb cradle, .50 Cal machine guns, cockpit detail just go on and on and make for a stunning scale model.
The list of working features is equally impressive, pre-fitted split flaps, pre-fitted nagivation lights, superb twist and turn electric retracts that feature sprung legs and large rubber tires which like the retracting tailwheel, are also pre-fitted. The landing gear is linked to a sequencer for the U/C doors for that final scale touch. We have been extensively involved in the development of this stunning P-40N and the end result is a not just a scale model to be proud of but also a superb flying model that looks every bit as good in the air as on the ground. This P-40 is a must for warbird fans and is so easy to fly it is also a great choice for the intermediate pilot looking to move up in scale, as the saying goes "the bigger they are, the better they fly" and they don't fly any better than this beauty!
Hi, I just bought one of these kits, and it is a nice looking kit, but as usual, there is no manual showing how to hook the electric sequencer up, there is tape stating what the connectors are for, but not for which way to plug the connectors in (they will plug in either the right way or the wrong way which may burn the sequencer out!) I mean come on guys if your gonna sell a kit at least make sure your customer gets the needed diagrams! anybody have a photo of the electrical hook up for the sequencer/reciever etc. HELP!
Ok, So I got this p40, pros, nice looking plane, easy to fly, cons,I recieved the pnf model not even close to being pnf at all, first the tail rudder, and elevator both had to be cut from the plane , and have robart hinges installed to correct the lack of movement/pitch. second both servos for the tail/rudder have stripped out gears (how does a "NEW" plane have stripped out servos?, anyway also the ESC 60 amp opto "no name" controller was DOA on arrival, and the "LACK" of support that HK provides is hidious. So if you decide to buy this plane, first, buy your own electronics, because HK so far have "NOT" resolved the problems they sent me, net buy "JUST" the "KIT" ARF. nice looking plane though.
