Boeing p 26 "peashooter"

Hello I thought this was going to be easy, but it was the most difficult one I have presented these days. The cutout must be very old, probably from the time of the actual plane. Countless design flaws and errors, (number 26 was covered by the headrest) that forced me to manufacture many parts (engine etc) and to put patches. The wings have a graft, since the dihedral is wrong So I'll make another one of a better kit, but the plane is pretty. Regards

That looks like the old Fiddler's Green kit. A lot of the those can be pretty problematic, and aren't usually as easy to build as you would think. The effort to make them simple quite often adds complications that you may not find in a "more advanced" model.

You did do a great job though!

Mike

Yes Mike, it cost me a lot of effort, since it is one of the old kits that you mention, but since I had it started, I ended up improving it a bit. It also has the flavor of the old Thanks and greetings

I am not sure but...
Wingspan real plane 28 feet
One feet= 30,48 cm
28x30,48=8,53m


Wingspan model= 25cm


So 1/X.853=25
X=853/25=34,12


Scale model is 1/34

When you asked me, I looked at the model and thought 1/32
