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.
