Kitty Hawk Texan done!


Recommended Posts

Less than 1 month build time. I honestly believe that’s a record for me. 







I will add, ever since I got back into plastic, this has always been one of my grail kits.  Just something about the T-6 I’ve always loved.  Kind of ironic that a close friend lost his life in one back in 2004 when he was a passenger at a community fair and a guy was giving rides.  My buddy cut in line because he had to get to work and during takeoff, the engine died because the pilot didn’t check his fuel knowing the fuel gauge was bad.  It stalled and pancaked right into the ground. 

I have a second kit in the stash and hopefully lessons learned from this build will make the next even easier and better.  But I’ve got to learn the aluminum foil trick first. I’ve got a few kits screaming for a real aluminum skin. Including Texan #2.
