This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
The North American Texan was the most widely used military training airplane of all time, with more than 17,000 units produced. The first prototype produced in 1935, given the designation of BT-9, was a monoplane with fixed tail wheel landing gear, thandem open cockpits and powered by a Wright R-975 Whirlwind engine. Its responsiveness, handling and performance made it a perfect trainer for fighter pilots and yet it was docile enough to avoid many losses of novice pilots. Numerous units were exported to various countries for their pilot training.
The T-6G Texan, a variant of the original BT-9, was equipped with steerable and retractable tail wheel landing gear, Pratt & Whitney R-1340-AN-1 Wasp engine, and square-tipped propeller. The T-6G served the US Air Force and US Navy, and some served as a reconnaissance plane during the Korean War.
