Blackhorse Curtiss P-36 A Hawk


I picked this model up at a decent price as a project. Hope I haven't bitten off more than I can chew. I credit Capt Easy here on RCG for the inspiration and I hope to copy many of his well engineered upgrades. I have decided to take it a step further however and replace the gear (Standard mechanical retracts) with rotaters and struts from the FMS P-40. They are a little different than what the hawk had but close since the hawk was the predecessor of the P-40.

This may take a while!

I'm thinking I will have to open the wing up more and cut it away where the wheel well will go and use a carbon fiber spar elsewhere. Have not determined exactly where that will be yet. Been working with foam for so long I am having to re-learn balsa. Lol
