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) pl[...]
Medallion Models resin kit circa 1990 or so. This is still the most accurate kit of the P-36/Hawk75 in this scale. This model represents an aircraft from the Royal Thai Air Force, 85th Wing, Dom Muang 1944.

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 [...]
Not a night fighter this time but fits right in with my oddball schemes. This aircraft, along with it's squadron mates sported some pretty weird paint schemes while attending the 1939 Cleveland National Air Races. Trying to interpret the colours[...]
Let's round off our Curtiss *hawk series with a prequel - a few P-36 Mohawks in the RAF service. With profiles by Rick Kent (used by permission) accompanied by text and research by Joe Baugher. - Ed.
Considerable interest in the Hawk had been [...]
Another of my favorite planes, in one of the best schemes for it.
