  • $\begingroup$ NC248V was registered as a Fairchild KR-135 (airhistory.org.uk/gy/reg_N32.html) but that doesnt look right. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Jamiec Looks like the model builder ran out of "V" decals, so he flipped an "A" upside down. :/ $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


The top image is a Bellanca Skyrocket.

Bellanca Skyrocket

The second image looks like the Fairchild FC-1, one was built as a prototype, followed by the FC-2 which was powered by a radial engine.

Fairchild FC-1

Not sure about the last, found a few similar but nothing exact.

    $\begingroup$ The top one looks different from the Bellanca Skyrocket picture: different angle of vertical tail, different rudder, different engine cowling shape. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Koyovis there are a few different models of the Skyrocket, the cowling and tail do have differences $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Here is a better picture of an XRE-3 Skyrocket (civilian name CH-400). The tail and the wing struts match a lot better. The one in the question sports a NACA cowling and indicates a late series model. $\endgroup$ Feb 24, 2018 at 20:10
