1/144 AT-6 Texan/Harvard Racer
« on: November 26, 2018, 10:20:34 am »
The original plan for my Texan fell through due to it being smaller than all my USCG decals, so sometime soon I'll get a 1/72 Texan. This is a new plan.

The kit itself is a Valom 1/144 AT-6G Texan. It's going to be a painting whiff, lol, with an improved propeller. The propeller came from a 1/144 Sweet Hurricane Mk.I, with it's wider and longer twin blade and it's pointed cap, instead of the kit supplied propeller and cap.

So the scheme is a Green/British Racing Green camouflage with a Hellblau underside. Decals include two 1/350? F-14A tail codes, cause they're my initials (A.J.) with a skull and crossbones, it'll also have racing numbers from a Testors vessel of unknown scale (31, but switched to make 13), US Star and Bars roundels, and it's nickname "TEX" cause it's from an N-Scale Graffiti set. Debating on skull and crossbones wing decals keeping in theme with the tail codes.

Sounds good.  Can't wait.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Well assembly has started, and the fit of the wings to the fuselage is horrendous! Greenstuff to the rescue... *Groans*
