1/32 P400 Airacobra Fighter.

Following the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor, the United States of America declared war on the Japanese Empire which led to short-lived but drastic reduction in weapon supplies to foreign countries. The USA seized plenty of aircraft that had been ordered by Sweden and Great Britain for its own usage. Amongst these planes were also the Caribou Mk.I (later to be renamed the Airacobra Mk.I) fighters for the British, which was an export model of the Bell P-39 Airacobra fighter. The Army Air Force renamed these planes the P-400 and put them to the service besides its standard P-39 machines and the seized machines were used also in Africa and in the Pacific Theatre of Operations. Some of these machines were later delivered to the USSR under the Lend-Lease act, where also the British machines ended up. The P-400 differed from the US versions by having a 20 mm cannon in the nose and their exhausts were of 12-stubs type.

Special Hobby’s 1/32 kit of the P-400 Airacobra, is molded in gray plastic, with photo-etched metal parts, decals for markings and an illustrated, full-color assembly guide and painting guide. Comes with four different marking options (three American and one Soviet).
