1/72 Revell T-6 G Texan

Gallery Article by Sunel Tan on Sept 6 2018



OBB build of the Revell Texan, I believe this is a rebox of the old Heller kit and has raised panel lines. I did not bother to sand the raised panel lines as it was too much work, the only thing I added was the pitot tube which was made from a hypodermic needle. Decals are from Blue Daimond Decals based in the UK which specialises in Philippine Military subjects. Painted with Aluminum with a base of Jet Black using SMS Paints which are manufactured in Australia. Slight weathering with panel liners, oil paint and highly diluted Tamiya smoke which was sprayed on some panels.

This particular aircraft "Mercia Mia" was the personal training aircraft of General Ting Aquino of the Philippine Airforce.

Overall it was a fun build and at times challenging as I wanted a good looking NMF.
