Big Texan - Kitty Hawk Model

Postby A30_737_AEW&C » Fri Dec 27, 2013 12:09 pm

This big fellow is about to hit the streets............1/32 T-6 Texan by Kitty Hawk Model

http://www.kittyhawkmodel.com/#!kh32001/cv66

It's not explicitly clear to me which of the variants you'll be able to build from this kit, noting that Texans/Harvards/SNJs had varying styles of canopies between variants.

Now who is going to produce the plethora of 1/32 scale decal options that a kit such as this will demand ?

More importantly, who's going to be first with a Wirraway conversion?
And so it was that later, as the miller told his tale,
That her face, at first just ghostly, turned a whiter shade of pale.

"More importantly, who's going to be first with a Wirraway conversion?"

Let's see now:
New, shorter fuselage.
New interior details with space frame, observers cockpit and equipment etc
New fin and rudder.
New tailplane.
New outer wing panels.
New engine and cowling.
New prop.

That leaves wing centre section, U/C, and canopy from original kit. Not sure if the latter can be used without modification either.
