The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk fighter/ground-attack aircraft was one of WW II’s most famous fighters. The P-40 was easier to build and maintain than the other USAFF fighters at the time, and was in large-scale production such that nearly 14,000 were built by 1944, making it one of the most produced American fighters. It remained on the frontline until the war’s end. Known for its fierce “shark mouth” nose art and its versatility, it was used by most Allied countries. The famous Flying Tigers flew the P-40s in the Pacific theater and achieved notable success defending China and attacking Japan, helping to turn the tide for the Allies.
41-13297, which comprises most of the material used in the PlaneTag, survived a wheels-up landing and Pearl Harbor attack in 1941. It later crashed during a patrol mission over Oahu and remained there until it was rediscovered in 1985. It is currently being restored. Additional material was provided by Pima Air & Space Museum , taken from re-skinning P-40 wings during restorations.
Pima Air Museum restores numerous aircraft and have been collecting P-40 material for decades. In conjunction with the Pima Air Museum, and other restoration projects, MotoArt is using original skin material from several aircraft to bring you these exclusive P-40 PlaneTags. As such, this skin material cannot be specifically matched to which aircraft it was taken.
Important Notice – Please Read Carefully
PlaneTags are made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal. Because PlaneTags are made from real fuselage, each PlaneTag bears the color, thickness, and wear and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it is therefore rare to create two identical PlaneTags. These variations and imperfections are not product flaws. They are part of the beauty of PlaneTags. As a result, you will have a limitied option to select the color of your PlaneTag. The images on this website are provided for reference only and should not be used as the sole basis for choosing a particular PlaneTag.
