Anyone know the age of the Airfix T-6?

Appears to originally be a Heller molding that was first cast in 1978.

Thanks! If I can find the one I have somewhere in the stash, It may get turned into a USN dive bomber.

Looks like I'm a bit late to the show here. I recently got a boxing of a 1/72 Caudron Renault 714 C-1 from Heller that I don't really have any solid plans for, so I thought it might be fun to join in.  No idea if I can finish it in time, but who cares as long as it's fun, right?
Thanks!

Absolutely. I've built that kit as a floatplane, goes together well if memory serves

Join the fun, dude!! Only a month left but I've found that in a lot of instances that a pretty decent amount of time. Especially so if the kit goes together well as Narses2 has indicated.

I've been having a lot of fun with this. I'd never done a group build before so this is a new experience. I think you'd have fun, too.
