    I have been making liveries for the X-Plane model of the Staggerwing, but I can't find any pictures of Staggerwings that are in military service, or are being used outside of the U.S.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks in advance,

    Tom

    Hard to come by I think...I've been trying to track down pics of the RNZAF impressed Staggerwing....
    I do have a 3-view drawing and a walkaround photo shoot if that's of any use to you.

    The 3-view's not of the RNZAF scheme unfortunately - just a B/W line drawing. Drop us your address in a PM if you're interested though.

    To be honest, I don't know how the RNZAF's sole example (NZ573) looked in service, the only photo I've found so far was taken after one of two very bad crashes...

    Andy...great pic!

    Oh. I've got a few (rather nice) 3-views already. Thanks for offering, though.

    I've got an old IPMS journal with a few pages on the military Staggerwings. Send me a PM with your address and I'll get it to you.

    Hi Tom -- I know this Staggerwing doesn't meet any of your criteria--it's a civilian version in the US--but it's such a gorgeous plane I couldn't resist!

    I have a few shots of Staggerwings, but they are all in civil markings. They are real lookers though.

    Here's a couple of shots I took of the Staggerwing at the Air Force Museum. The first is from about 15 years ago and the second is from last Feb.

    I have 1000+ photos I've taken at the Air Force Museum over the last 25 years during 10 or more visits. Also many taken at the Smithsonian. I probably have at least one picture of 95% of the aircraft at either museum. If anyone needs to see any of them let me know and I'll post them.
