P-26 Peashooter China - 1/48 Hobbycraft

Recommended Posts

Dear friends,

 

This is the last addition to my collection, a P-26 Peashooter in Chinese colors (in fact the Chinese version was named Boeing model 281). Painted in overall light grey, the majority of these aircrafts were changed to green later. The kit was surprisingly good for its age, no fit issues, a good cockpit (that I enhanced with some belts), and a good engine too. The only difficulty in construction concerned the engine exhausts and rigging, which I represented using Albion Alloys 0.2mm nickel rod. Overall a pleasant construction.

 

Hope you like it,

Dimitrios

OK,This is new to me,not the Peashooter but the user.It seems the Nationalist Chinese Republic bought a lot of planes from anyone who was willing to sell during those difficult years.That's a beautifully done P-26,how I wish I have one.

I really like that colour scheme. So much better than the usual garish schemes the Peashooter is shown in.

Thank you very much. Indeed the Chinese purchased a big variety of airplanes. I liked this version, I think it suits the P-26, and it is a change form the usual greenish-olive-khaki camos.
