Curtiss P-36 Hawk

Timely Plans's Curtiss P-36 Hawk

The Curtiss P-36 Hawk, also known as the Curtiss Hawk Model 75, was an American-designed and built fighter aircraft of the 1930s and 40s. Perhaps best known as the predecessor of the Curtiss P-40 Warhawk, the P-36 saw little combat with the United States Army Air Forces during World War II but was manufactured in significant numbers and used by several foreign air forces. The model shown here, designed by Paul Palanek, is a 34" wingspan sport scale control line model powered by a .35 CID glow engine. Construction is robust and straightforward, and the end result would be a rugged sport scale control line aircraft.

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-36 Hawk or any other PDF 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.
