When receiving the card from Russia, one definitely doesn't expect image of Lockheed on it :))

The third picture is the Consolidated XB-32. Second photo is a Fairchild? I think.....

Second one is Fairchild Model 24 with a Ranger engine.
Same model was also built with Warner Scarab radial engine.

Incidentally, that XB-32 is the second prototype, 41-142. This photo was taken very early in the flight test program as the airplane still has three-bladed propellers and the prewar style rudder stripes.
