Monogram 1/48 T-6 Texan-Korean War

June 1, 2021 · in Uncategorized · · 14 · 1.7K

"Patches" is another in a continuing series of Korean War Era builds. This is one of the original kits issued in the late '70s. I only added harnesses to the cockpit. Paint is Model Master Faded OD over Neutral Gray. Decals are from the Eagle Strike Sheet. Weathering was done with the pastels which I really like and their brown and black panel line accent. Final finish was MM Flat Lacquer. I had some probably self-inflicting trouble getting the fuselage together. Follow the instructions next time Bumpus...A tip of the hat to Jim Sullivan who kindly tweaked the photos. Hope you like it. Next up-a photo Panther.

  1. Looking great, Clark!
    Love the weathering!

  2. Nice work, Clark. Korean War T-6s are interesting.

  3. Nicely done - I never think of the T-6 when I think Korean War. Looks great in that scheme.

  4. That sure looks "ridden hard and hung up wet." Nice work on an old classic.

  5. Very nice result on this Texan, Clark.

  6. Thanks Clark, that Texan looks great in that not too often seen paint scheme. Those old Monogram kits still have much appeal and with a little TLC can be made into a fine model as you've demonstrated with yours.

  7. Thank you Jim! I'm starting to notice Revell (Germany) is releasing some of the oldies once again! I enjoyed weathering the T-6. She took some work as you know but turned out good.

  8. Great job on a classic kit!

    • Thank you Robert. It is a good kit, well detailed, and a relatively easy build if you pay attention to where parts go. You do not need the rear instrument panel shroud for a Korea War T-6.
