The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk is an American single-engine, 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 of World War.
This 600mm wingspan rendition is powered by a BR2205 or QM2804 with 2300Kv and is designed to be printed in LW-PLA, with a few key parts in PLA, like the motor mount, spinner, exhaust stacks, propeller hub/spinner. The design has carefully planned internal structures for LW-PLA slicing resulting in clean parts with minimal oozing.
