Hi Everone, Just completed my latest `Secret War` build, so I thought I`d share some pic`s

Rodens T-28D kit, built to represent an aircraft used by the RLAF during the South East Asia conflict

and actually the first `D` I`ve built from the `D` boxing

Mostly from the box but added bomb load from a Hasegawa weapons set and.....

decals from; Hobbycraft Beaver, the stash and a few from the kit

That's great Russ, a very interesting type. And after 40 years as an aviation enthusiast, I am pretty sure I've never seen that roundel before!

Thats looking totaly amazing Russ, so smooth and clean build! And very nice exhaust stains/weathering effect on the black masked areas, its giving a lot of depth to the final look!

Beautiful,simply beautiful especially in the not often seen camo of the RLAF.I sincerely hope your next Trojan project will be a Filipino

AT28D or otherwise known in the Philippines as a 'Tora Tora'.

Lovely job, you must have quite a collection.

FF

Cheers FF, I`ve only a few dedicated to the secret war in Laos in particular; I`ve a Cessna Bird Dog and a T-28 done as Raven FAC`s, another T-28 in 606th SOS camo`, B-26K Nimrod, Cessna Skymaster in black and a Green Hornets Huey at the moment. I want to add some Air America stuff ie Helio Couriers, Dorniers, Volpars etc but they`re not made by anyone at the moment.

Thanks to everyone else for looking and nice comments

Thanks Rick, The kit`s not too bad, soft thick plastic, some flash and ejector stubs, but goes together with only a small amount of filler. I managed it so it can`t be too hard.
