Also picked up during the Gettysburg trip. A 1936 Keystone-Loeing amphibian also used by the company. I may paint the prop and the exhaust housing. I can not find a picture of the original Texaco version to give me a clue to true colors. Paint would not have held up on these parts. Not sure if this model would have had metal prop.

In this case the wing struts did not have the block supports at the base. This block of plastic is not at the top wing connection. They would have been better flipping this around but then I guess you would have had screws in the upper wing. I could not find a picture of such a version with chunky strut supports on the lower wing. The tail did have some added support in the real version.

However Texaco did use this aircraft in the 1930's

If you score a victory but lose your wingman, you lost the battle.
