    Very nice work but what plane are you modeling.
    This has nothing to do with the modeling of the aircraft, I just don't recognize it.
    I am sure when you tell me it will be one of these moments!

    Sorry about that. Here is a little introduction:
    "The T-6 Texan single-engine trainer aircraft entered production in 1937 after the United States Army Air Corps made an order for 180 aircraft and the British Royal Air Force for 400. The USAAC designated their aircraft as BC-1, while the RAF called theirs the Harvard I. The US Navy received 16 modified aircraft, which they designated SNJ-1, and then 61 more as SNJ-2. As the war began in Europe, a total of 1,173 were contracted to be given to the RAF and the Royal Canadian Air Force via Lend Lease; these were the AT-6 Harvard II variants with squared-off wingtips and straight-edged rudders. As the United States geared for war, the US Army Air Force received 1,549 AT-6A aircraft and the Navy 270 SNJ-3 aircraft, which were trainers equipped with the more powerful Pratt & Whitney R-1340-49 Wasp radial engines."

    Radial Engine has been created and integrated to the cell. Propeller is added. Then we will "clean" it, create the cockpit, landing gear, animations etc... lots of work...but we are on the right tracks.

    It's one of these

    The RAF used them to train their fighter pilots in the run up to and during the Battle of Britain.
    This one is housed at Rochester Airport where I occasionally have a poodle around in a Cessna. One day I'll fork out the cash to get an hour in that.

    To have one in game to simulate the last days of training before deployment will be great

    I second that! Now if we can get a steerman biplane trainer (sorry if I spelled that wrong) we'll be all set! Very exciting. Good work Champ!!

    Thanks for the pictures and replies.
    I knew I should have known what plane was being modeled.
