  1. Looking for inspiration for a new project I found photo of Texan used as a crop duster. Searching for next photos resulted info, that this same airframe was used as... air tanker. For me it was obvious that I have a topic for a new project I bought a HobbyBoss Easy Assembly kit (sorry - only this was available), planned "some" changes and after few days (easy kit ) I can present to you my try to build Tanker #8 And at the end

  3. Good evening all, Today, a FAP T-6 Texan operating from the 3rd Air Force Base in Portugal at some point in the mid 1960's. Academy has made a lovely 1/72 Texan that is kitted by Encore with a wide range of markings options, so it was tough to choose which I would go with. Ultimately I chose Portuguese as I have a Hawker Fury on the way that will also have Portuguese markings and which shares the Daschund marking of this build. Once I had underwing serials, I expect this one will go quite fast. I haven't yet decided if I will install the entire canopy or just t
  4. Hi folks. I want introduce my final work. This is Texan T6G French AF in Algeria 1957. Model was build very long time. Start was 5 years ago. Model build from box + Eduard - FLAPS. Best regards.
  5. Hello, While searching for an interesting early US WWII-era color scheme for my future Texan project, I came across pics of this interesting bird: img source: The American air power museum img source: TVL1970 via Flickr Is this color scheme historically authentic? I am sure the inscription behind the wheels is not, but what about the black undersides, nose-art and serials? Thanks, Aleksandar
  6. I'm building the Academy 1/72 T-6G Texan and I suspect the Israeli camouflage scheme in the instructions, could well be fictitious. It says Sand, Light Green and Dark Green but given they were only in service until 1963, I would have thought the Blue and Dark Brown camouflage would have been more likely. I know some were also painted Dark Green and Dark Brown when they first got them but I can't find any concrete evidence of anything else. Any ideas anyone? thanks Mike

  8. After a six-month break, at last one finished model. Here's the picture, enjoy it.
  9. Hy Guys. Probably you know that feeling when you just can't stop yourself from starting a new project. Well, that's what happened to me with this one. I just wanted something nice and colorful. Enter Italeri (ex-Occidental, me thinks) 1/48 T6G Texan. Soft plastic, but with nice details on the exterior. Not so nice for the interior, which is somehow sparce. In order to improve a little bit the interior (especially the cockpit and wheel bays/flaps) I will use the eduard zoom etch for this kit and some scratch here and there. The transparencies are clear enough but too thick in order to de

  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. My entry into the Lesser Built Air Forces Group Build is the 1/32 T-6 Texan by Kittyhawk. When this kit came out Zotz decals did “North American T-6 ‘Texan in the African Wars’”. I zapped that puppy up as soon as it was available. After looking at the choices on the sheet (there are 12!) I was drawn to the aircraft serving in Biafra due to its very different camo scheme. Of course astute observers will notice, nice camo scheme, but where are the national markings? It seems I am using a very fancy decal sheet that has many and various colorful options solely as a painting guide! It

  18. North American T-6G detail Set Eduard 1:32 Last month we reviewed three etch sets for the Kittyhawk T-6 Texan HERE. Eduard have now released a fourth. This new set covers the exterior of the model and also includes a complete set of flaps. Exterior and Landing Flaps (32354) This single sheet set contains additional detail parts for several areas of the model. Firstly the engine is taken care of with new webs that fit between the cylinders, just below the rocker covers. There is also a new retaining ring that fits inside of the cowling; to fit this requires the removal of some int
  19. North American T-6G detail Sets Eduard 1:32 With the release of the lovely Kittyhawk 1:32 T-6G, it was only a matter of time before Eduard released some etch for it. The two sets reviewed here, three if you include the Zoom set, are for the Interior, and seatbelts. Interior Set (32810) This set comes on two sheets of etched brass, one, the larger of the two, is unpainted whereas the other one is pre-painted and self adhesive. The unpainted sheet is dominated by the two large panels that are fixed inside the fuselage halves, either side of the cockpit and represent the aircraft struc
  20. 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
  21. 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

  23. This thread will be about the Testors classic SNJ Texan, originally a kit from Hawk. The main reason I went for this kit is that it reminds me of my Top-Flite AT-6 Texan. My main hobby is R/C flying and so the plastic kit building is secondary and mostly a winter activity (not very often good flying conditions in Norway in the wintertime. Dark, cold, wet, windy. Sounds nice, hmm?) Pics of the inspiration: Here is the Testor kit: Onepiece wing, benches instead of seats, quite charming actually.The fit is not bad but i used some filler on the wing and tail + the holes for the landing ge
