Curtis Interceptor and P 36

In the thread about the Brewster Buffalo, the Curtis Interceptor and P36 were mentioned as being used by the Dutch Airforce against the Japanese.  There is some information concerning the 36; it was a front line fighter for the US briefly and was used by the French against the Luftwaffe in 1939-40.  The Curtis Interceptor was refused by the US Army Aircorps, but was sold to the Dutch in some numbers.  Does anyone have any info or pictures?

Santino:

Good stuff!  I saw a site earlier today wich claimed the CW 21 could outclimb the Zero and Oscar as well as fly faster.
I don't think that was true.
