N590CA, Capitol Air Express 727-231

Evening, all. Just a simple livery here, nothing groundbreaking. It's N590CA, a Boeing 727-231 in the service of Capitol Air Express. The airline went belly up in the mid to late 1980s, but the images I used as reference for this specific aircraft were dated December 1994, so I have marked it as such. Let me know if there are any glaring issues.

$20 says that this can beat the range of some of the modern-day jets at the cost of speed.
don't mind the lazy two-tone scheme, although I do intend to do what it really looks like soon

FMA IAe 33 "Pulqui II"

One of famed designer Kurt Tank's final projects, the Argentinian jet fighter prototype known as the "Pulqui (Arrow) II." It was based on research and engineering conducted for Nazi Germany's Focke Wulf Ta 183 program, which was in the early stages of prototype conduction at the war's end. Tank and his team, with Argentine help, continued iterating on the design and constructed four prototypes during the rule of Juan Perón's government. Due to design and manufacturing flaws, the program met several delays and was halted when Tank's contract expired in January 1955. Tank and his team fled the country after the fall of the Perón government later that year, and the only remaining prototype was used against the Revolución Libertadora, a military coup against President Perón. In 1956, a record-breaking flight from Córdoba to Buenos Aires was planned to showcase the aircraft. The flight was successful, however on the return leg the Pulqui II's oxygen system failed, causing the semi-conscious pilot to land hard, collapsing the gear and damaging the aircraft beyond repair. In 1957, despite the United States having offered 100 used F-86 Sabre aircraft to Argentina, a fifth and final prototype was ordered designated Pulqui IIe. The aircraft, which was visually nearly identical to it's predecessor, was finished in 1959 and began flight testing in September of that year. Changes had been made to reduce the unstable stall characteristics of the aircraft at high angles of attack, as well as increasing the range of the aircraft by fitting it with a "wet wing" for increased fuel capacity. Because of the political ties to the old government and the aircraft's now dated design, the program was concluded in 1960 after short use as a transonic research aircraft and the final prototype was placed in storage.


I've depicted the third prototype below:

FMA IAe 33 "Pulqui II," continued

I've taken the liberty of modifying my Third Prototype into the Second and Fourth aircraft.

Second Prototype:

Fourth Prototype:

Fourth Prototype in extrapolated olive drab camouflage:
This aircraft is curious for a number of reasons. It was pressed into combat service in 1955 against the Revolución Libertadora, a military coup against President Perón, and a singular photo exists seemingly showing the aircraft in a slapdash camouflage. I have extrapolated the aircraft's appearance at the time based on that image:
