Limited Edition of 1,000 Models Worldwide
Boeing’s first and last all-metal monoplane fighter produced for the US Army Air Corps was the P-26 "Peashooter". There were 111 P-26As produced. The wings on the P-26 were braced with wire instead of wooden struts and this reduced drag and along with a 500 hp engine the aircraft was much faster than the older biplanes. The mono-wing also meant a higher landing speed so flaps had to be added to slow the aircraft down. The Peashooter had fixed landing gear and an open cockpit with only a windscreen to protect the pilot.Die-cast metal body
