Curtiss P-36, 27th Pursuit Squadron, Cleveland National Air Races
This is my first post at iModeler, and I wanted to share my version of the 27th Pursuit Squadron CO’s plane, as it appeared at the Cleveland National Air Races in September 1939. At that time the P-36 was the most modern US fighter (pursuit) plane. It was also an important contributor for the French Air Force (Armee de L’Air), where it achieved numerous successes in the “Phoney War” (September 39 through April 40).
