KittyHawk 1/32 T-6

This was built for a customer and it reflects a scheme from 1940. The actual airplane is a restored T-6 and is done up in this fashion. The restored a/c and the photos of the original show that it had a 94th Pursuit Squadron emblem on the fuselage where a star would normally be. I had no decals or available insignia for that so the customer said to not bother with it. Also the restored a/c had no mast forward of the windscreen and that is the way he wanted it.
The kit went together rather well and It was a fun build. I can’t think of any real problems with it. One has to love the T-6/SNJ and in 1/32 scale it makes into a very nice model. He now wants me to build two more for him in Navy and USMC schemes which I look forward to doing.

  1. Looks pretty nice, Frank – despite the negativity associated with this particular KH kit.

  2. Frank, its actually got a very classic look for not having a lot of markings on it, and I don’t mean its like the girl in school that has a nice personality. This actually looks very nice. Well done !

  3. Man this looks good, I like it very much, great paint job as well. Very nice indeed Frank.

  4. Beauty, Frank! Great silver finish.

  5. great looking model, Frank!

  6. Nicely done Frank.

  7. Great build, nice looking model. I built the same model and tried many new techniques when building. It was actually the scheme of a real restored SNJ that I had flown for a few hours. I went super nuts in adding details to it. Got carried away. I like the way yours came out better.
    Here is a few pics of mine in USMC restored scheme. The plane is based out of FL, USA.

  9. Really nice result, particularly given the difficulties this kit presents.

  10. Thank you all for the very kind comments
