Great Planes Curtiss P-6E Hawk EP Biplane ARF
Last — and best — of the breed!
The Curtiss P-6E was the last biplane fighter built for the Army Air Corps, as well as one of the most beautiful bipes of the 1930s. By the time it was introduced, however, the era of flamboyant trim schemes and fabric-covered wood biplanes was rapidly giving way to mass production, advanced aerodynamics and all-aluminum skins. The only original P-6E still in existence is at the U.S. Air Force Museum in Dayton, OH — and the only ARF version available is the one you see here. Enjoy the P-6E's uniquely graceful lines and vibrant colors the easy way — with this Great Planes ARF.
