dumas curtiss p-6e hawk

Here are some pictures of my lastest build. It is a Curtisss P-6E Hawk made from a dumas kit. I made skis for it instead of the wheels.

Hey, very nice model you have there. I really like the skis instead of wheels.

Excellent job - how many planes did it take you to get this level of build. Very nice, a gorgeous airplane as a model or full scale. Never called to service for the US.

I have built less then a dozen of these type of kits. But I have been building Rc balsa airplanes for 20+ years. The secret is to plan ahead, take your time and don't halfa$$ it.

reference plane

Here is the reference picture I used for my build. I haven't done the emblem on the back yet. I'm still trying to decide on which one I want to use.
