Any interest in this plane becoming part of PF?

Don't know about the majority of the community, but the early war campaigns are of great interest to me.

I've liked the P-35 for a long time, and hope that it eventually makes it into PF. The P-43, P-66, and CW-21 would all be nice too, but the CW-21 is the only one that I know of (of that bunch) that is currently being modelled.

That's great, too. I've always loved that plane, but at least the P-35As were in combat until the fall of the Philippines - quite a bit more than the CW-21. But I'm happy with as many of the oddball non-mainstream planes as I can get. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I like the roads less-traveled.

Not really. The only airplanes to get into the fight were P-36s and P-40B/Cs.

Wasn't there supposed to be a model of an italian Re 2000 in the works? It could pass for a P-35 or P-43.

The P26s at Pearl were painted flat black and used for night patrol work, as it was felt the open canopy gave better vis at night. They were not often used, and the pilots had no real training in night operations, but it was the USAAC's first dedicated night fighter unit.

All were safely tucked away in their hangar on the night of March 4, 1942 when two H8K "Emily" flying boats of the Imperial Japanese Navy made the only night bombing raid on Pearl Harbor. Not that they could have caught the Emilys anyway.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Philippine Army Air Service, 6th Pursuit Squadron, 12 x P-26 Peashooters and a pilot by the name of Jesus Villamoor. They were there and in the fight. And they did all right too, always against superior equipment and numbers, including the Zero.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Hi Folks! Sorry for my english, but I want to reply to Tater SW.
Italian RE 2000 fighter was projected by Ing. Roberto Longhi in 1937 and was the first Italian "modern" fighter, different from any of its predecessor. Usually, Italian aviation books say that Longhi's project was widely influenced by P35 Seversky's design, that he knew working in USA.
Otherwise, Roberto Gentili, in his "Italian fighters 1919/1938" Vol. 1, pag 91, says, basing from an 1964 Longhi interview to a an English revue, that Longhi, together with an other engineer of his staff, visited in november 1937 Seversky Aircraft Corporation, looking to acquire a P35 license to build.
Officiallly, this project failed, owing to the bad rumours spread in these days about the fighter's performances but the author suggests an other version, as:
RE 2'000 was quite similar not only externally but even internally to P. 35 and a lot different from any other Italian airplane: for example was build to facilitate mass production, the fuel tanks were only in the wings and so on;
Seversky Corp. was then in big economical and financial trouble, that an year later led it to bankruptcy,
Seversky Corp. had previously sold to Russia and Japan airplanes and licenses, against US Government efforts and wills,
P35 project was, in 1937, not exactly up-to-date and modern at that time
the same Longhi, talking about the discussion held in Seversky literally said "money seemed to be virtually no obiect".
Has anyone please any information about it, from US records or books?
