Kittyhawks 1/32 scale model of the T-6 Texan was very well received and the buildup models with the kit decals look great. The T-6 was widely used as a trainer and over 15,000 were built. Caracal Models has released a set of excellent markings which depict the T-6 as USAF trainers from the 1950’s. The markings cover:
- T-6G Texan 49-2910, Hondo AFB, Texas 1954
- T-6G Texan 49-3477, Columbus AFB, Mississippi 1955
Both planes are FS33538 Chrome yellow overall and are a nice change from the kit markings. Inside the package, there is a folded booklet of full color instructions showing all the needed plane views and profiles for each plane with decal placement and color call outs (chrome yellow and black). A standard size decal sheet is included and is printed by Microscale. Registration is excellent and all the stencils needed for one aircraft are included.
This is a simple set and a welcome one to get the T-6 back to its training roots. In summary, excellent preparation and artwork coupled with Microscale excellent decals and an attractive scheme make this a must have set for the T-6. Recommended!
