Now that's a sweet idea. I love all of the oddball aircraft in the Pacific theatre. I hope you can find some more inspiration for that build! :)
i was thinking of making Chenault's a/c when he was in China making his evaluation of the Chinese Air Force before the AVG was formed. There's just one picture that I found. Not much to go on, but it was a pretty beat up plane that had obviously seen better days.
It would make an interesting subject.
I don't even remember if it was a P-35 or a P-36, but it caught my attention.
