The Beech T-34 Mentor was a relatively well known trainer that has only been kitted in 1/72 scale by Hasegawa some time ago.  It is almost has the status  of a collectors kit!  This particular aircraft was used by the Whidbey Island Air Station (located near Seattle, USA) as a "club" aircraft and was kept in good flying condition.  It is essentially kept in original military configuration and coloring.  

Photos directly below were taken at the Victoria Airshow in British Columbia, Canada in August of 1991.
