The P-35 might be unlikely, but the camouflage turned out very well.  :thumbsup:

Masterful build and camo!

Great finish on the P35

Very nice with cracking camouflage. I can also see it as an Italian in Spain. Perhaps being tested against the Fait G50.

Very much so. It does remind me of the Re 2000 line as well

Marvellous work on both of them!  :wub:

How did you get the lines on the F-84 so neat? Very thin masking tape?
The canopy sealant on the F-84G looks also really nice and tidy.
Cheers,
Moritz

Hi ChernayaAkula,

you are right sir, sealant on the canopy is pencil

Less unlikely than you might think.

Of all the possible customers, Japan took delivery of 20 two-seat derivatives of P-35 (SEV-2PA or AT-12 as the USAAC knew it). What if Japan had ifrst bought the single-seat variant first, and after judging it to lack the required range and acquiring the two-seater long-range variant, sending the single-seaters to the Nationalists to show their commitment to the Anti-Comintern Pact?

Alternatively, Seversky's export efforts could have succeeded far earlier than the OTL deal with the Swedes, and Portuguese Air Force bought the decidedly more modern-looking P-35's instead of Gladiators. In OTL, Portuguese airmen served with the Nationalist air forces during the Spanish Civil War, so it's not a stretch to believe that Portuguese aircraft could have participated too, what with Salazar's regime openly supporting the Nationalists.

Where there's a whiff there's a way ;D
