Two-seater variant of the P35 marketed as a 'convoy fighter' in the late 1930s. The history of this design illustrates the tremendous pressures that US aircraft manufacturers were under before WW2. With no domestic market for its products after Curtis won the USAAF contract Seversky were forced to look for overseas buyers. The only country to buy the A8V was Japan (via an intermediary) which resulted in a major scandal that forced Seversky to 'restructure' its business and become Republic.

The spherical recess underneath the model is for mounting it on a 4.5mm BB.

Revised (12-Jul-2013) with cleaner canopy framing.
