The Boeing P-26 Peashooter was an all-metal, open-cockpit pursuit monoplane used by the United States Army Air Corps. Designed and built by Boeing; the prototype first flew in 1932, and the type was still in use with the U.S. Army Air Corps as late as 1941 in the Philippines. There are only two surviving Peashooters, but there are three reproductions on exhibit with two more under construction. This high-quality replica is handcrafted from mahogany and comes with a wooden base. Length is 12" and wingspan is 14"

The aircraft was credited with two or three zeros, and one Betty in the Philippines before being burned by crews on December 24th, 1941.
