This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
Special Hobby models are limited run kits which consist of plastic, resin and metal parts. For intermediate to advanced modelers only, they will require extra work to build successfully.
The Curtiss P-36A, besides the Seversky P-35 fighter, became the first modern low-wing US fighter plane. Not only that it was successfully exported in the pre-war era and also during the early stages of the war, it also became the main front-line fighter of the US Army Air Force until its successor, the P-40 fighter, came into service. Thanks to this, it also lived to see its only fighter appearance in US colours. This deployment brought the USAAF the first victories in the Second World War.
The kit contains five frames of grey plastic, a frame of clear parts, PE fret and a set of resin parts. The decal sheet offers marking for two Pearl Harbor based machines whose pilots, P.Rasmussen and HW. Brown, were successful and gained their victories during the Japanese attack on December 7, 1941.
