Bolling died defending himself and his driver from German soldiers. The field was used for personnel proficiency flying. This P-26, #33-77 stationed at Bolling Field, was struck off charge in May 1935.Die-cast metal body

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.
Hobby Master offers a wide selection of quality, pre-assembled, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted to a high level of accuracy using specifications of the original aircraft. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.
