I'm taking a break from t building Khalkhin Gol models and knocked out this little gem last night. Looks very different in the Nationalist Chinese paint job. link

Did it come with the pilot figure?

It is interesting that the spats do not fully enclose the wheels.

Very nicely done!

Did not spats on aircraft have a problem with dirt/mud buildup? Grass and dirt runways…

Editor in Chief Bill, yes it did, not a hint of other details (not even a seat!) but a pretty decent pilot

ColCampbell and Dan Cyr; I noticed that too, spats usually encompass the entire wheel except for a small part of the tire, mud often caused ground crews to remove spats (Stukas on the Eastern Front) but the funny part is that this aircraft was designed to be used on an aircraft carrier. My guess is that the open face would allow a quick replacement of the tire in the event of a blow-out from a hard landing
