P-26A Peashooter 30-49, Guatemala 1943, HA 7504


Limited Edition, this one is numbered 41 out of only 1000. Boeing P-26A Peashooter 30-49, Guatemala 1943 "Last USAAF Peashooter" in 1/48 scale by Hobby Master. Boeing’s first and last all-metal monoplane fighter produced for the US Army Air Corps was the P-26. Known as the “Peashooter” there were 111 P-26As produced. The wings 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 bi-planes. In 1942 the Guatemalan Air Force (Fuerza Aerea de Guatemala) wanted seven P-26s. The U.S. Congress prohibited lethal weapon sales to most Latin American countries. The U.S. Army altered the sales document to read PT-26 “Trainers”. By the end of May 1943 the FAG received the seven aircraft plus one extra for parts. They were given serial numbers 42 to 49. Two aircraft survived, one at the Planes of Fame museum of Chino, California, and one at the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum.
