With many of these 2-seat American trainers still flying worldwide, it couldn’t be easier to find scale documentation to match this well-detailed 2 sheet plan by British Scale Champion Brian Taylor. This aeroplane is designed to be powered by a four-stroke engine, but experienced modellers should be able to convert it to electric power (details not supplied, so please send us information if you make a successful EP version!) It is not suitable for beginners, either to plan building or model flying. The model is of conventional all-wood construction and moulded accessories are available, along with a Laser Cut & Additional Wood Packs.

About the full size: Over 15,000 T-6 Texans (known as the Harvard outside the US) were built. They were used primarily for pilot training during WWII, but this rugged aircraft was also used in a wide variety of other roles during and after the war. Widely exported, some were still in military operation into the 1990s and hundreds of them are still flying today in private ownership.

What’s in a Laser or CNC Cut Wood Pack? – A CNC or laser cut wood pack contains most, if not all, of the intricately shaped parts shown on the plan, which would be difficult or time-consuming to cut out by hand. It does not contain any sheet or strip wood, which you will need to buy separately. Alternatively, you can purchase an Additional Wood Pack, if available. Our Laser or CNC Cut Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and lite ply and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model, such as hardwoods, metals and GRP sheets.
