PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

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.

Handmade Aviation Tags

PlaneTags are: 

  • Authentic - made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal. 
  • Unique -  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. 
  • Collectible - each one is numbered in a limited edition and comes attached to a display card. Collect them all!
  • Versatile - comes with a durable metal ring, strong enough to attach to luggage or keys or display

Important Notice – Please Read Carefully

Variations and imperfections are not product flaws. They are part of the beauty of PlaneTags. The images on this website are provided for reference only and should not be used as the sole basis for choosing a particular PlaneTag. As a result, you will not have an option to select the exact color.

    Great WW2 Fighter tag!

    These tags are great! The green patina each of these ones have is stunning. The polished metal one really stands out in the light!

    The best parts of my collection

    By my count, I've purchased 24 PlaneTags: 5 Commercial, 1 General, and 18 Vintage. The Vintage tags are part of my "multi-media" airplane collection. For the P-40 I have artist Gaëtan Marie's print "Robert R. T. Smith" which which shows pilot R. T. Smith's P-40 "47", Smith's autobiography "Tale of a Tiger", Smith's signature on the book, a Hobby Master diecast model of Smith's P-40 "47", and best of all, a P-40 PlaneTag. The PlaneTag is great!

    Straight from HQ

    This was my first tag bought in person with PlaneTags. Got a good rundown in person about the airframe it came from and even saw the shop. This is a special tag not cause the Warhawk is a personal favorite, but also cause I got to see the behind the scenes and the efforts of the team to preserve history.

    A great piece of history.

    My dad was born on Oahu before Pearl Harbor, and his dad, an Army mechanic, sat my dad in a P-40 during the war. I gave him the tag from a plane that may have been around when he was there. I got one for myself too. Very cool.

    One Of My Faves!

    I have plenty of PlaneTags, but this is probably my favorite. The patina gives it tremendous character, and the history of the airframes the metal came from is fascinating.

    A sweet piece of history!

    I am a fan of the P-40 but living on O'ahu, I felt compelled to purchase this. It is a cool piece of history to touch and own. The plane was involved in the events of December 7th. 1941, which adds more prominence. Ordering was quick, easy and delivery was fast. I am very happy with my tag and may order another!

    I’m a vintage aircraft enthusiast and my company was founded by pilots who flew p40s during WW2. I now own an original part of that history.

    P-40 Warhawk

    The Planetags are great and as a Pilot and RC flyer they remind me of the history of aviation. I’m looking for a P-51 Planetag.
