"Whispering John" Landers claimed four kills with the P-40 during the 49th FG's epic defense of Darwin, northern Australia, in mid-1942. He became an ace in this P-40, which was assigned to his senior flight leader, Capt. "Bitchin" Ben Irvin, on December 26, 1942 when he shot down two of six Japanese Ki-43 "Oscar" fighters. Landers had to bail out moments later when his aircraft was shot up by the remaining Oscars. After completing his combat tour in the Pacific, Landers went on to achieve greater fame as the commander of several 8th Air Force fighter groups. He finished the war with 14.5 confirmed aerial and 20 strafing victories.

The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk was a single-engine fighter and ground attack aircraft. First flown on October 14, 1938, the P-40 was used by most Allied powers during World War II and remained in service until the end of the war. The P-40 performed well as an air superiority fighter, at times suffering severe losses but also taking a very heavy toll of enemy aircraft. It was the third most produced American fighter aircraft after the P-51 and P-47. By November 1944 when production of the P-40 ended, 13,738 had been built.


The Corgi Aviation Archive features a wide selection of high quality, ready-made, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted with meticulous attention to  detail, using specifications of the original aircraft. Corgi models are built with diecast metal and some plastic components.
