Monogram 1/72 P-36C 28th C.G. Elmendorf AK.? Midway/Aleutians
Hearing that P-36s were in Alaska around the time period of the build and having few other candidates I decided on building my blue boxed Hawk. Now for a paint scheme, which was harder than I planned, On the net. I happened upon the decal info for Hobbycrafts 1/48 Blitz Hawk. Which shows a Hawk in what appears is brush painted white over O.D. Try as I might I couldn’t fine any actual photos of said bird. Supposedly it’s of the 28th Composite Group 1942. I’m guessing by the time of the campaign, if there were any P-36’s left they were used as hacks. Decals I used are from the spares box.
