   During the Second World War, the P-40M Warhawk fighter aircraft was used both by the USAAF and the air forces of the Allies. Over two hundres were also delivered to the Soviet Union. P-40M s/n 43-5925 White 23 saw only very brief service with the VVS (Soviet Air Force). When the new machine was being flown over to the unit, its pilot 2nd Lt. V.A.Revin got lost, landed by mistake on Finnish territory and both the machine and the pilot were captured. The Finnish military was reluctant to put the machine to operational service, Finnish pilots of HLe.Lv.32 were of the opposite opinion however, get the machine to airworthy conidion and flew it covertly, which eventually came to light and the Curtiss was officially approved for military use and flown until the end of the war.
   The P-40M kit comes on three styrene sprues with one containing clear parts. All of which offer the top quality and detail overall. The decal sheet caters for the original markings of the Soviet-flown White 23 with red stars and silver tail, and the markings of the plane in two various Finnish schemes.

-    superbly detailed model, very easy to build
-    interesting colour schemes with breathtaking history
-    separately available masks, accessory sets and figures
