Product Details


The P-26 Peashooter is an aircraft that represents a transition between the old and new. As the first all-metal monoplane in U.S. Service, it was clearly a sign of things to come yet it retained an open cockpit, fixed landing gear and wire-braced wings. The Peashooter first flew on March 20, 1932, with service deliveries beginning in late 1933. The P-26 served as a U.S. front-line fighter until 1938, when it began to be replaced by Seversky P-25s and Curtiss P-36s. However, the P-26 saw combat in the early days of World War II by Chinese and Philippine air force pilots. Two P-26s continued to serve in the Guatemalan Air Force until 1956.

This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
