Yes, I have more than a few PH era aircraft kits on hand to dig out for something like this. A P-36 would be wonderful . . .

Was able to get started on this build last night. I decided to start with the engine. Pics are of the front bank of cylinders with 17 PE pieces from the Eduards set. Once the engine is completed, there will be over 100 PE pieces installed.

Slow progress due to the amount of PE. The rear bank of cylinders is now complete. It looks the same as the front, so no pic needed. Completed the forward and aft cowl rings.
