The P-40 Warhawk / Kittyhawk fighters were USAF and Allied air force units throughout the Second World War. In many versions, they fought on all battlefields of the Second World War. As a result, these fighters and fighter bombers fly with the characters of many airmen and many interesting colors.

The P-40N was the latest serial version introduced into the equipment. She was in the USAF armament mainly in the Pacific and the China-Indian battlefield. In the Commonweath Air Force, this version was named Kittyhawk Mk.IV. RAF has deployed this version in Italy, RAAF and RNZAF in the Pacific.

The P-40N consists of three gray plastic moldings. It is complemented by a frame of clear parts. It offers overlapped cabins divided into individual parts. This, and because there are two outboard parts, it is possible to build the model with an open and closed cab. The small parts frame contains two types of propellers, with narrow / for P-40 early versions / wide / for P-40 later versions / propeller blades. It is the only P-40 model in the 1/72 scale that reflects the different propellers. The frame offers other alternative parts, such as two types of additional tanks or exhausts.
