The Great Planes Curtis P-6E Hawk ARF is a vintage biplane fighter.  It was the last biplane fighter built for the Army Air Corps, and one of the most beautiful bipes of the 1930s. By the time the P-6E Hawk was introduced, however, the era of fabric-covered wood biplanes was already giving way to mass production, advanced aerodynamics and aluminum skins. Today, the only original P-6E Hawk still in existence is on display at the U.S. Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio. This ARF is completely trimmed, the fiberglass cowl comes finished with a painted feather trim scheme.  The wheel pants feature the iconic hawk "claw" design. Landing gear fairings help complete the model's scale looks.  A hatch on top of the fuselage provides access to the LiPo battery and radio gear.  The P-6E Hawk can be equipped with an inexpensive and readily available motor, ESC, and battery. It is sized for easy transport without disassembly, and a complete hardware package is included.
