A couple more from last year.

 

Accurate Minis reissue of the 1/72 Monogram Curtiss P-6E. Used as a fighter from 1931-36 when the last were replaced by the P-26. Several remained in service as utility aircraft until 1939. This is an aircraft from the 17th Pursuit Squadron, Selfridge Field, MI in its famous "Snow Owl" scheme.

1/72 Revell Boeing P-26A, 94th Pursuit Squadron, Selfridge Field, MI about 1934. Used from 1933-42, it was the first all metal monoplane fighter adopted by any nation since the Junkers D.I of WW1. The decals are from Starfighter Decals.

Aaron, you're a guy after my own heart! I love those Golden Age yellow wing planes. I'm also building a P-26 at the moment. Nice work, and thanks for sharing!

Which colours/paints did you use on the P-26? I'm going to start working on a PT-17 soon.

 

Thanks

Thanks, along with WW1 aircraft these have really brought the fun back to modelling for me. I find learning about the subjects is part of the fun, and I knew very little about these planes so there has been a lot to learn.

 

I mostly use Pollyscale for the colors now, they have 3 USQM colors, Olive Drab 22, Blue 23, Orange Yellow 24. The P-6E was one of my first and I think I used MM Acryl Chrome Yellow.
