    I just saw this in the latest issue. I've also seen carding in Make magazine.

    The really cool thing is they gave us a FREE AT-6 model to play with....................

    Anybody up for a coloring competition? No prizes just, fun and everyone get a different AT-6 model out of the deal!

    My goodness! The one depicted up front is a Zero Fighter and it's really an AT-6 Texan :)

    Reminds me of the movie Tora! Tora! Tora! wherein they used At-6 Texans and painted them up as Zero Fighters

    Yeah, that struck me as a little odd as well. Most of the general public doesn't know the difference. :roll:

    They certainly don't. Heck, I build airplane models all the time and someone had to tell me they used AT-6s in Tora! Tora! Tora! :wink:
