  1. Special Hobby is to rebox the 1/72nd Academy AT-6G Texan with new parts in order to propose earlier AT-6/SNB and Harvard Mk.IIB-IV versions. Source: https://www.specialhobby.info/2021/01/news-from-special-hobby-012021.html V.P.
  2. Hi all! The third and final part of my Sarfice trio of aircraft is finally done and rolled out – North American AT-6D “C” joins my AD-4N “TR-KMP” and Fouga Magister “TR-KFJ” in celebration of the flying career of Jacques Borne. Those of you who have seen my previous RFIs on these will know the background and so I won’t bore you with that here. . I intend to mount these three on a presentation board in the future. Globally the last military operator to put the Harvard in to service, the GAP operated a fleet of six AT-6D/Harvards for many years. They arrived in Librevill
  3. Hi all, I'm looking for a little guidance from anyone who has attempted to convert a T-6G canopy to the "longer" Harvard II-type canopy. Apart from the framing - which I think I can fix with thin strips of stryrene - it seems to be that it is only the final section that is different in shape. Is that true? I have tried a CMR canopy, which I at first thought was good, but it is very poor in detail. My other thought is whether an old Airfix Harvard II canopy would be any better? I'd be very grateul of thoughts and guidance from anyone who has attempted this or has any g
  4. Hi all, I'm a sad case as I know little about the Harvard (T-6) but I am embarking on a build of a Heller kit, converting it to a South African machine. My question is about the colour of the cockpit. Was it black throughout or were there some green sections, or something else? I'd valuie your thoughts in inputs. Thanks in advance, Martin
  5. Dear all, another small project comes to a close for this newbie (returnee to the hobby), so I thought I'd just post a short thread over here to close-off my small Harvard project that started off as a Revel (reboxed Heller) 1:72 T6G but with a few modifications was able to be presented in the end as something closer to what the RAF would have used in the form of a Noorduyn Harvard 2B (IIB). I tracked progress and discussions over on a WIP thread (below) and these images did conclude that; but I thought that I ought to pop something here for those just looking to see the end result. Was i
  6. This is quite a basic kit by Italeri with custom masks made for the current aircraft that flies out of Goodwood in West Sussex, UK. I did quite a lot of scratch building inside the cockpit, and the overall finish reflects the tiredness of the current scheme, including the crazed and opaque windows panels. She is due a new scheme over the winter months which should quite striking.
  7. After a six-month break, at last one finished model. Here's the picture, enjoy it.
  8. I wonder if anyone cares to explain this camouflage: https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205209687 Thanks in advance
  9. Has anyone ever re-visited a build from years ago, and decided to make some amendments? I built and shared here on Britmodeller a SAAF T-6 Harvard back in 2015. It had a tiny version related error on the rudder, which I back then decided to live with. However recently I've decided to correct the mistake, as well as make a new diorama for the Harvard. And with the Photobucket debacle (what I'm calling it) the original thread does not show the photos anymore, so I've decided to share some new photos of the amended build. And th
  10. Hi Scale Aircraft Modelling went through a stage of offering free decal sheets in the early eighties and I have been meaning to use this one for ...er...over 35 years. Still better late than never. The Heller kit is showing its age but this was still a fun build. Capital Model Supplies had the kit advertised at 99p in the above magazine. I paid AUS $10 (about £6)
  11. Kiwi Models is to release a Noorduyn Harvard Mk.IIB and AT-16 conversion sets. Four boxings announced Sources: http://www.kiwiresin.com/_p/prd1/4633856341/product/coming-soon! http://www.kiwiresin.com/_p/prd1/4633856551/product/coming-soon http://www.kiwiresin.com/_p/prd1/4633857191/product/coming-soon! http://www.kiwiresin.com/_p/prd1/4633860521/product/coming-soon!
  12. A few more, taken at North Weald. The first two (T-6 and the Stearman 75) were taken when I went up for a jolly in my mate Norman's T-6 (the one shown). It was part of the Harvard team (a la Gary Numan). Norman flew for David Gilmour too (the Stearman, for example). The other shots are from one of the fly-in days. The last one (Navy 69) was owned by another friend, Gavin Keegan, and is another that I've been lucky enough to fly in. Excuse my indulgence! Martin
  13. North American Aviation T-6 Texan / SNJ / Harvard. Pics by Bootneck Mike of Aircraft operated by Warbird adventures in Florida, where he flew in one.
  14. I went to last years Headcorn show in Kent for '558 but thoroughly enjoyed the day.

  15. What sound to be the old Occidental 1/48th Harvard Mk.IIA kit is to be reissued very soon by Italeri - ref. 2736 Source: https://www.facebook.com/ItaleriModelKit/posts/702460499826573 V.P.
  16. I'm building the KH Texan as a Harvard IIa as based at 20 SFTS, Cranborne, S Rhodesia in 1943/4. She will be finished as EX490 - there's a very good colour picture of her for reference purposes: and my father flew her during his training phase on a QGH controlled descent through cloud exercise: I'm using the AlleyCat resin canopy set for the corrected canopy, Eduard seat belts, AMS resin's 9' corrected props, Airscale's instrument dials for the corrected instrument panels that I'll be making and SAC's whitemetal undercarriage legs: I'm also having Dad sitting waiting patiently for so
  17. Hi, I should have started a thread in the KUTA GB but forgot, and now I am not too far away from completion! Anyway here's an old neglected Academy kit that I have used to try out the new AK Extreme Metal paints, using Freightdog decals. There's probably all sorts of detail issues but I'm quite happy how it's turning out! Thanks for looking. FF Harvard
  18. Hi all, my first post here. I have seen plenty SAAF Harvard kits painted bright orange, but not a lot of "sunfaded yellow" ones, so I gave it a go. This was one of my main reference photos It's a bit of a snap kit, with only 21 parts and no instructions on how to put it together. However no instructions was needed. It all fit together pretty well considering the age of this kit, not a lot of filler was needed. But the level of detail isn't very good, especially in the cockpit where there was absolutely no detail apart from two pilot figures with seats fixed onto them. No instrument panel
  19. Well it's been a while, I see that I started her in May of last year, but my Harvard of the Rhodesian Air Training Group circa 1943 is finally complete, though not quite in her diorama that I have planned. The final stage was some weathering using Phil Flory's Dark Dirt - judiciously applied it's highlighted all the lovely rivet detail on the KH kit. Max
  20. I want to built a Harvard IIb (Monogram / Revell-kit) used by the Dutch Air Force during 1947. What cockpit-color should I use? Interior Green (US color) or RAF Cockpit Grey / Green. Hans Weijand The Netherlands
  21. Harvard Mk. IV RCAF Moose Jaw, 1953. In Canadian service the Harvard was often referred to as 'The Yellow Peril', or 'Two Ton Tessie'. Many thousands of RAF and RCAF pilots must have undertaken their training on these aircraft over the years, flying over the vast Candian praries getting to grips with the beast. I was reminded of it again, reading an excellent book "Stalins' Had it now!" by James Stevenson, an RAF pilot who did his training on Harvards & T-33's in Canada before returning to the UK to fly Vampires. I thoroghly recommend it, it's a good read. I built the Occient
  22. Source: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234939155-texan-is-coming-nuff-said/ KittyHawk is to release a 1/32nd N.A. T-6 Texan/SNJ Harvard series for the 4th quarter of 2013. V.P.
  23. I'm in the early stages of building my 1/32nd KittyHawk Texan, which I'm finishing as a Harvard IIa based at 20 SFTS Cranborne in S Rhodesia. The instrument panels supplied are just for the Texan but can anybody give me a good reference/photos/drawings of those for the Harvard? I've seen some fairly recently but can I find it again? Max
  24. Hello, Just arrived from Fantasy Printshop, my revised and updated 'Weekend Warriors' RAuxAF decal sheet. A6 in size, options included are Mosquito T.3 RAO-L VT588 of 608 Sqn at Manston, Spitfire Mk.XVIe SL727 of 601 Sqn 1949 at North Weald, Harvard T2B FX432 of 500 Sqn 1952 at West Malling and Spitfire Mk.22 RAV-M PK550 of 615 Sqn, at Biggin Hill 1949.

  25. North American T-6 Texan 1:32 KittyHawk History The Texan originated from the North American NA-16 prototype (first flown on April 1, 1935) which, modified as the NA-26, was submitted as an entry for a USAAC "Basic Combat" aircraft competition in March, 1937. The first model went into production and 180 were supplied to the USAAC as the BC-1 and 400 to the RAF as the Harvard I. The US Navy received 16 modified aircraft, designated the SNJ-1, and a further 61 as the SNJ-2 with a different engine. The BC-1 was the production version of the NA-26 prototype, with retractable tailwheel land
