The Curtiss SCN-1 Falcon was an advanced training aircraft used by the United States Navy during the 1940s. In mid-1942, Venezuelan military aviation received 5 Curtiss SCN-1 aircraft, which were used as training aircraft. The Falcon was also used by Cuba, Peru, Ecuador and Uruguay. Very little information and photographs exist of this airplane operation in Venezuela.

To build this Falcon, I used the Planet Model 100% resin kit: Curtiss SCN-1 Falcon, in 1/48 scale. Painted with Model Master acrylics, and finished with homemade decals.
