1⁄35Unusual Markings of the P-36A
you have probably guessed, the paint was not temporary by any means.
"Everything from Brillo pads to lacquer thinner and solvents were
used to remove the markings. After this experience, this type of
marking was never used again. For 1940 and '41, simple colored
crosses were painted on the fuselage."
This model depicts only one of the many
paint schemes used. From the photos in the article (taken during the
exercise), it appears every aircraft was different but all in pastels.
Both models are OTB 1/72 assemblies
intended to document the tragic, yet humorous incident, that caused some
US Army aircraft to have some unique and unusual markings.
