Curtiss Hawk II, China, 1937

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just thought I`d show some pic`s of my just completed attempt at making a Chinese Nationalist Air Force Hawk II from the old Lindberg Goshawk kit.


Curtiss Hawk II No 2804, flown by Lt Art Chin, 28th PS/5th PG, August 1937.


Had to do a few modifications to the base kit, including: eliminating triangular cut out from the rudder, manufacture tail skid and.....


fit semi built in slipper tank underneath to replace the teardrop aux` tank.


Detail improvements include: ignition wires, exhaust stubs and replacement pilot figure to hide the lack of cockpit detail. Decals from the stash.


Built to remind myself why I rarely build Biplanes.

Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking

Cheers Russ

Splendid Hawk, looks good in that scheme. Looking at this reminds me why I don't do biplanes in any scale :shutup:
