1/48th Monogram SNJ-4 In The Markings Of MAG-11
September 18, 2014 in Aviation
Although the 1/48th Monogram SNJ / T-6 Texan kit has been around for several decades, it’s still a fine kit to work with. I built this model several years ago in the markings of Marine Air Group (MAG) Eleven. I’ve included a photo of the plane I modeled. That Texan was used a s a squadron hack for observation flights and other utility duties. It was photographed over Espiritu Santo in October 1943. The model was an OOB build with the exception of Squadron’s weighted wheels (trimmed down a bit) and decals from ye ole decal stash box. The model went together smoothly with no major issues and was airbrushed with Model Master enamel paints in the blue/gray over gray paint scheme. For a fun build, I highly recommend that kit.
