P-36A Hawk Monogram 1/72
Although Monograms 1967 1/72 Hawk kit is quite dated it is the most easily available kit of the P-36A Hawk. Two of the Pearl Harbor Defenders 2nd Lieutenant Phil Rasmussen of the 48th PS and 2nd Lieutenant Harry Brown of the 47th PS used P-36A during the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Pro: Easily available, inexpensive, detailed engine, good fabric control details.
Cons: Must be modified from the export version that is included in the kit, raised panel lines, no detail in wheel wells, no cockpit detail.
