Perhaps more famous as the “Flying Tigers,” the 23rd Fighter Group flew P-40 Warhawks adorned with distinctive “Shark Teeth” nose art. Colonel Robert L. Scott earned ten “kills” during his tenure as a Flying Tiger. Scott described how he accomplished this feat in his best-selling 1943 autobiography, “God is My Co-Pilot.”

 

This Limited Edition kit features new short tail parts, new exhaust pipe parts and two marking options:

  1. P-40E: U.S.A.A.F. 23rd F.G. CO Col. Robert L. Scott, Code: 7, China, September 1942
  2. P-40K: U.S.A.A.F. 23rd F.G. 76th F.S. CO Maj. “Grant” Mahony, Code: 111, China, Spring 1943

 

The 1/48 P-40E/K Warhawk “Flying Tigers” kit has 109 parts in all and a skill level of 3.
