Boeing P-26 Peashooter

by Patrick Chung


Boeing P-26 Peashooter


Academy's 1/48 scale P-26 Peashooter is available online at Squadron.com®



This is the Academy's re-release of Hobbycraft 1/48 scale P-26 Peashooter.

The parts have delicate recessed panel lines and fit nicely. The construction is straightforward. Most of my time was spent on painting and decaling.



The new Academy decals are far better than the original Hobbycraft items and react to the decal softener
well enough to confirm the curvatures. After the decals had set, the complete surface received a few coats of clear varnish to give model the correct sheen of the aircrafts should have in 1930s.

Fishing line was used to make the flying wires with stretched sprue as stiffener.
