Granville P-45 B Fighter

Here are some more images a 1/32 scale Granville P-45 B fighter. Built from Lindberg's 1/32 Gee Bee R racer.
This model was based off of the Mercenary Graphics drawing and is a mythical aircraft. A what if plane if you will.

After the attack on Pearl Harbor the Gee Bee Racer was pressed into service and became the Granville P-45 fighter where it served on the Aleutian Islands and the Panama Canal Zone in 1942, where it gained some success against the Mitsubishi A5M4 (Claude).

That's awesome! What a great idea. I love the idea of taking a real plane and repurposing it as a fighter.

Would you like to exchange links?
