 This second P-36 sheet  covers two more USAAC Pursuit Groups. Like the last time, this sheet is designed for the Monogram kit, which has also be released by Revell.  I'm equally sure that one could use the MPM/Special Hobby/Azur kit as well, though it could be that the markings would be a bit large or a bit small as they were not designed for that kit.

All of these planes are in the unpainted metal scheme and have colored cowling sections and the red/white/blue rudder markings of the time. There are sufficient insignia, data and stripe decals, as well as wing walk markings to do two complete aircraft. The US Army under wing markings are in black, which is, I believe, correct for uncamouflaged aircraft.

The three options are:

The Group Commander's plane from the 16th PG with three command stripes and the cowling segmented into the three squadron colors of red, white and yellow.

A 24th PS aircraft with the White forward cowling and black anti-glare panel. The black trim stripes are provided on the sheet.

A 21st PS aircraft with a yellow cowling and two fuselage bands.

The instructions are well done and in full color. They also explain how to take the Mongram kit and make it into a more accurate P-36A as it is molded as a P-36D. As with the other sheets, it is beautifully done by Cartograf.
