Designed in 1931, the Boeing P-26 Peashooter was a novel aircraft that incorporated some firsts in aviation. It was the first all-metal pursuit monoplane produced for the US Army Air Corps, and It was the first plane to use flaps to reduce landing speeds. The P-26 was also the last Army Air Corps pursuit aircraft with an open cockpit, a fixed undercarriage and an externally braced wing.

This is truly an ARF model, as the fiberglass fuselage is gelcoated and finished; no paintwork is necessary. The tail group and the foam-core, balsasheeted wing are finished in a yellow iron-on covering, and the fiberglass landing-gear covers are finished to match the color scheme. A nice decal sheet is also included to finish the Peashooter.

The Peashooter fuselage is well designed, and the firewall is strong enough to handle just about any engine you choose; it has hard points installed in it for the upper flying wires.

With its large, round cowl, the Peashooter just begs to have a nice-- looking radial engine.

The Peashooter kit comes with a servo tray that will accept almost any standard-size servo; it also has room to mount the receiver. Use high-torque servos (I used JR 4131 servos); this is a big airplane, and I'm sure that you'll do more than just straight and level flying!

The Nitro Models CMP P-26 Peashooter comes with a very nice decal package so that you can finish the plane to look like the one on the box cover. The flying wires add a nice touch, and they are needed on the bottom of the wing to support the landing-gear cuffs.

This is one beautiful plane. The color choice was perfect, and the easy construction will save you many hours of work. If you like the look of old classics, you're going to like this one.

Although the Peashooter of the 1930s wasn't designed for aerobatics, barnstorming with this model is a lot of fun. Spins are my favorite maneuver, and they are a sight to behold; recovery is Instantaneous. I also enjoyed watching the plane perform loops, rolls and even an avalanche or two. This Is one, fun, Golden Age beauty that flies like a sport plane, and I love flying It. I think you will, too!
