1/33 North American AT-6 Texan - Civilian N7095C

and...another Texan.

This is a civilian version that was actually owned by the Father of one of our papermodeling pals, Mark Johnson.
Thats his Dad on the cover...Walter Johnson, back in 1963!

Thanks for helping me out with the Texan prototype Mark!

I thought it was a pretty cool looking paint scheme
and theres probably not much chance of too many civilian aircraft
considering all the Military requests. lol



get it at the Paper Model Shop www.papermodelshop.com

and here, at ecardmodels.com:

Thanks Don
Yeah, the look of the plane isn't bad either!

[Duplicate Post] Updates and Modifications

The tweaking and fiddling never ends!
I am constantly looking to tweak parts, streamline the fit, or just improve the models in general.
This is a pain sometimes...since it means constantly updating older versions of models.
(sorry ecardmodels staff)

Thats why at a certain point I drift away from a model design and don't do anymore...because
it might mean updating way too many models! lol

Anyway, I am just finishing up my test build of the Golden Hawk (Bud Granley's) Texan
and I keep tweaking things...I can't stop!!!

And I keep running back to my computer and applying those tweaks to the model
...and then applying them to my other Texan kits (released and unreleased).

Luckily only two Texan kits have been released so far (the X-151 and N7095C) so there isn't
too much to update. (All modifications will obviously apply to all subsequent models)

Heres some of the tweaks:
-minor adjustments to the Exhaust location and heat shield.
-reduce the Exhaust pipe size
-minor adjustment to the Gear Doors and updated the instruction pages.
-added the "roll cage" to the cockpit.
-minor shape adjustments to the wing root fairings to improve the fit.

Some fairly minor stuff I know...but it all goes toward trying to offer the best model I can.

So, I am sending up two updated kits to ecardmodels...and if you bought the X-151 or the newly available N7095C
just log back in to your ecardmodels account and grab the modified versions.
Thanks

Sorry everyone
...a little delay in getting the two Texan model files (X-151 and N7095C) updated.
Blame me!

I'll posts as soon as the new files are ready for download and replacement.

UPDATE 1/33 North American AT-6 Texan - Civilian N7095C
There is an updated version available now at ecardmodels.
If you already bought the kit, please go get the update.

Over the last couple of weeks I have been tweaking the instruction pages
on newer Texan kits, and I have applied these changes to the earlier models.
I have also designed a new (rear) canopy section that fits better and is
a little easier to work with. So, I have added this to the original kits too.

Just drop by ecardmodels for your updated file.
Thanks!
Dave
