Just got back from Sun-N-Fun fly-in. Great show again! Here's a mystery warbird for your viewing and discussion (Hint: it was made by North American):

NA-50, an export product made by North American Aircraft. It was, in fact, derived from the AT-6 design. In 1938 seven were produced for Peru and saw active service in 1941 in a border dispute with Ecuador. Armed with two .30 caliber machine guns.

Ding, ding, ding, ding! We have a winner! Vocatx is correct! One difference, this one is not a factory build. The builder took an AT-6 and re-built it to NA-50 using original North American plans/specs!

Actually a pretty cool looking bird, suprised that others haven't done the same!

I saw one of those at the an air show last year (either Laughlin AFB or Randolph AFB, I can't remember). My first thought was, "that's the weirdest looking P-36 I've ever seen . . ."

there is actually some difference between the na50 and that modified T-6 (several around i think). Note the tail. that thing could do all sorts of stand in work in movies....

there is one actual P-64 left. it belongs to the EAA in Oshkosh (least it was last i heard). Paul Poberenzy flew it at many airshows in the 60s and 70s, but i dont think its still flown.
