Curtiss P-6 Type III Hawk

Air Trails/Modern Hobbycraft's Curtiss P-6 Type III Hawk

The Curtiss P-6 Hawk was a single-engine biplane fighter introduced into service in the late 1920s with the United States Army Air Corps and operated until the late 1930s prior to the outbreak of World War II. A fast and highly maneuverable aircraft for its time, the XP-6 prototype took 2nd place in the 1927 U.S. National Air Races, and the XP-6A with wing surface radiators took first place, at 201 mph. The P-6 was flown in a variety of paint schemes depending on the squadron, the most famous being the "Snow Owl" markings of the 17th Pursuit Squadron based at Selfridge Field near Detroit, Michigan. The model presented is a 21" span rubber powered scale model best flown indoors. The plans show quite a bit of scale detail, including a lightweight retracting landing gear, unusual in a rubber free flight scale model.

About the Plans Printing Service.

About the plan source:

You should verify if the source file has the quality for the type of construction you intend to do, we will print the file without any kind of enhancement or scaling. To know if the file is good please download it and open it on a pdf viewer like Adobe pdf viewer and set the view level or zoom level to 100% or 1:1 or full scale or actual size, depending on which version or pdf viewer you are using. Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale the Curtiss P-6 Type III Hawk plan for you. But please keep in mind that if this plan is not vector, if you enlarge it too much the quality will be degraded.
