P40 Flying Tiger Cuckoo
Brazen, brave and very effective, the "Flying Tigers" flew their way into history thanks to their WWII exploits. Flying the P-40 Warhawk, the tenacious men of the "Flying Tigers" turned this rugged yet often outclassed plane into a fearsome harbinger of American firepower. Along the way they added the shark-tooth design on the plane's nose—turning the P-40 into an icon forever associated with the men of the 23d Fighter Group.
This exclusive "P-40 Flying Tiger" Cuckoo Clock salutes the heroic efforts of the legendary American Volunteer Group better known at the "Flying Tigers." Intricately sculpted and painted by hand, in authentic detail, the hangar features United States Army Air Corps motifs, flags and a clock face modeled on a warhawk propeller. The brass-toned metal pendulum is decorated with the prop and wings insignia. The plane taxies out of the hangar on the hour to the "ROAR" of the Allison engine.
Clock case measures appr. 17 inches tall x 7½ inches wide x 6½ inches deep.
Requires 3 "AA" batteries, not included.
