Hello everyone …. This is my very late finish of an AT-6D started in the Texan single type group build. It represents an aircraft operated by ALA MIXTA N° 46/GANDO/C.6-167 circa 1975 in the Spanish Sahara. A brief history that I found stated this. “This armed Spanish Air Force C.6 (T-6C/D) of Escaudron 463 at Ganda, was used in the counter insurgency role over the Spanish Sahara during 1975.” I chose the markings as there is a plane about 1 mile from my house that used to wear these markings as a warbird. Though it currently wears a new scheme. The kit is the Encore release of the Academy plastic. The underwing rockets are based on these. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/8_cm_Flz.-Rakete_Oerlikon The ones in my build come from the Newer Airfix MiG-17. Seems the Soviets cloned the rockets at some point. Please feel free to ask questions, post comments or thoughts. Please also feel free to visit the build thread. Dennis
I moved form America about 10 years ago and I am pretty sure I bought this there...so that might have been a few years before that...It's been in the stash for a while. Not as much as some Roden WW1 kits, but close! Time I built it! I'll save the other kit for the next time we do a 'School of the Americas' GB... There are three choices...the Air National Guard from Pennsylvania in '87; The Dominican Republic in 2000 or Bien Hoa 1971. I'll show more later... --John
