1/144 Beechcraft T-6 Texan II preview from Foxone

1/144 Beechcraft T-6 Texan II preview from Foxone
The next project on the desk from Foxone, the main basic pilot trainer for the US, Beechcraft are keen to highlight the additional work they have put into this design in order to improve on the original PC-9 so much so they consider it a distinct aircraft in its own right.... T-6 is not a Pilatus PC-9   ( PDF Link )

This aircraft is also used by a number of other air forces, so should present some opportunity for other schemes.

Too bad it's just a T-6, not a PC-9 (sheesh, why have the Americans uglified our sweet little bird?!?). But maybe we can hope for a PC-9 as well? And a PC-7? PC-21?!?

Btw, a relatively new Shapesways-contributor (Matti's Minis)also has a PC-6 Turbo Porter in his program, along with a Dornier Do-28, Cessna Citation Excel, Beech Bonanza and even a Bloodhound-SAM. Oh, plus an Eurocopter Equreuil - maybe something to feature in future Kampfgruppe 1/144-posts? = )

I am keeping track of Matti's output and have already featured the great looking SAM. I will be featuring more in the future, I have a backlog due to the Olympics and the day job!

Matti's items have been featured on

so do not worry, he is not without recognition.
