P-40E Flying Tigers by WS-Clave P-40E Flying Tigers by WS-Clave
The Curtiss Kittyhawk or P-40E served with a wide number of Air Forces during WW2. It was developed from the earlier Tomahawk, but never achieved the status of other allied fighters of the era.

The P-40E was used by the USAAC, and was known as the Kittyhawk 1A by other forces including the RAF, RAAF, RCAF, RNZAF, and Soviet Union

It was armed with 6 x 12.7mm machine guns and could also carry bombs on underwing hardpoints.

This example is a P-40E of the 1st American Voluteer Group - The Flying Tigers - Republic of China Air Force, circa 1942.

The P-40 has been a longtime favorite of me since I was a little boy. Great work on capturing the look and essence of it! It's beautiful!

There are so many possibilities because just about every country in WWII used it. Can't wait!
