That would have been my answer too. I've DEFINITELY seen a
P 36 kit on Hoellein's stand at the shows and I was pretty sure it was RBC. But I can't for the life of me find it on their website
It's out there somewhere, damit !!

The Hawk from WWW.RBCKITS.COM is a very nice model to fly and I still fly the model that I build for a testreview 2 years ago for a Dutch magazine.
Its me on the foto taken last weekend after a nother great flight making low flybys with inches to spare and even did make a touch and go "auw" no problem the flying went on for about 7 min on a old 7 cell 1700 scrc Sanyo pack.
The motor is a speed 600/8,4 with a master 2.5:1 gear on 7 cell with a 12x10 Graupner 3800 rpm on 20 amp (RBC advice 8 cell).
The weight of the Hawk is 1260 gram and I do the handlauch myself with no problem.

Its me again, also have look at the new Bearcat MicroWarbird kit from RBCKITS the model is my design and easy to build.
The wingspan is 600 mm with a speed 280(directdrive)on 8 cells 350 mah its a great model for Warbirdparkdogfighting and a Focke Wulf is also on its way.

The Curtiss Hawk 75 and the P36 has the sameairframe.
The name Hawk ... was used as the company designation,such as Hawk 81 was the company name for the early
version of the P40(P40B/C Tomahawk) and the Hawk87 for the P40E onward.The P36 is the U.S.ARMY AIRCORPS designation for
the American H75.It had the P/W 1830 engine and has a different
shape of the cowling since it was 14 cyl. two rows radial eng.
The French H 75A1-A3 also had the same eng.The Dutch H75(A7
I believed) and most other H75 had the Wright R 1820 which was
a 9 cyl. single row radial.There were also the cheaper export
versions with no supercharger and has fixed landing gear.
H 75M went to China,H 75N to Thailand,and H75 O went to
Argentina.We have one real H75 N displayed in the Royal Thai
Air Force Museum in Bangkok. The RBC kit has the cowling of the
Wright engined version.Do you think this kit would ROG if I make
the fixed gear version.I've been thinking so hard about this bird
too.I'm fairly new to E power.I've built a couple of E planes but
not in to scale yet.Hope this clears things up about the Hawk

I know of two modellers that put fixed gear and retracteblegear on the Harvard from RBCKITS but the harvard has a bigger wing.
Maybe its better to do more detail on the model than fly with the landinggear hanging out and make the model more difficult to fly.
The model as it is in the kit is a great model maybe you can build a second wing with fixed gear.
