This looks like the export version with Wright Cyclone with short nose as used in the Netherlands East Indies.
USAAC P-36 machines had longer nose with P&W Twin Wasp engine.

I would very much like to build that Iranian marked airplane someday. If we can ever confirm the fuselage striping (I would bet your profile is correct) I'm in for that one!

I've always had in the back of my mind to build one of the fixed-gear Hawks that the Chinese Nationalists purchased.

A very interesting aircraft type operated by many nations!

That's definitely Chinese... :-ok
My aim was always to build a colourful example in "confusion or distortion" cammo scheme from 27th pursuit squadron, although French samples are interesting as well...
There's a nice photo of demonstrator A-5 for China, and also the iranian A-9 sample, in the book Wydawnictwo Militaria n103 - Curtiss 75 Hawk vol.1
