Chino’s Seversky

December 2, 2012 · in Uncategorized · · 3 · 1.4K

Like I said before, yesterday was far from perfect photography weather at , but when there's something interesting on the ramp, haul out the camera and shoot. I haven't seen the Seversky outside in years. This is the 2-seat version of the P-35A, originally made for the Swedes (so Martin will like it) and impressed into US service in 1940 as an AT-12. This is the only flyable Seversky in the world.

  1. Thanks for posting these Chino photos, Tom. This Seversky looks fantastic in all that gleaming natural metal.

  2. I was recently gifted with a 1/48 HobbyCraft P-35 kit. It looks a little different than this P-35A model, but it does contain the same fuselage emblem, so I think I'll do it in this scheme. Thanks for the pics.

  3. That old HobbyCraft kit is not that bad. There used to be a really nice resin cockpit for it when it first came out, but I haven't seen it in years. if you're ordering other stuff from Squadron, add the True Details canopy for this to your order, it really improves the final look.
