Caught up at last on Thursday with the TFC Hawk 75, the French variant of the Curtiss P-36. Always one of my favorites from model building days, the 36 was one of the first airplanes airborne Dec 7. What a thrill to see it, the only flying example and one of only three or four examples in the world. Here are some of my pics. Oh and just in case you don't know, that's Steven Grey in the cockpit and Steve Hinton on the wing pointing.

Thanks John,

Great shot of the 2 Curtis together in the Air. Any idea when Stephen is going to bring it across the pond.

Cheers RER

Awesome... look forward to some air-to-air pics!

That prop looks unique. Is it off some other aircraft type that we would recognize?

Looks like a Curtis Electric P-40 prop to me....

Magnificent! Thanks for the photos. The ship looks absolutely fantastic, even if it is French. (Just kidding! It should be shown no other way.) The Hawk's paint scheme looks much better than the Tomahawk they did earlier. The was pretty awful.
