Hi Guys!

 

Let me present you my 1/48 Monogram T-6 Texan in Korean War livery. This is an old, old build. I build it with the purpose of trying some new techniques. First, I completely rescribed the kit and added some scrachtbuilt items inside the cockpit and engine. I also lowered the elevators for a more dynamic pose and end using some True Details resin wheels for a better look.

 

It was painted with different Alclad metal colors and enamels for the rest. I also use some Eagle Strike decals to represent a bird during the Korean War. Nice decals, but the only problem I encountered with them is that the checkerboard was to short to fit the engine cowling, not been perfectly centered with the anti glare panel. I only noticed it when the model was already finished. O well, live and learn!

 

It was my first try at weathering and I think I went a little heavy, but I can live with that, and despite all these years and new models, it still holds and important place in my display gabinet and is one of my favourites in my collection.

 

Hope you like it! :bye:

Very nice. Just shows what can be done with a kit that isn't in the first flush of youth.
