    I'd really like to see this one, possibly at 1/24th scale!

    http://www.curtisshawkp6e.com/

    The "Snowy Owls" scheme would be a must! This is, IMO, THE classic "Between the wars" Aircraft!

    I have no, zip, zero, skills at 3d modelling, or I would be tempted to give it a try myself.

    Here's to dreams!

    I always loved those "claw-foot" wheel pants! Nice model, did you build it?

    OH, heavens no. I just put up the picture and link. Some skilled in larger builds did the wonderful job on that one.
    Photos on the next page give credit to Jim Duckworth, so that is probably the builder.

    Just the thought of you doing the Curtiss in 1/144 drove my glasses prescription up a dioptrine or two... That is a pretty small bird even in the FG large version.

    Hey Rick

    If I did do the Hawk, it would scale out to 2.63 inches (6.67cm), so
    it would still be larger than the Aviatek or Eindecker I did. Would look
    pretty though.....

    WAK,

    How can I get this kit in the US? Is there a source for your products here? This looks like exactly what I am looking for!
