    Our Phil. AF considered having the Super Tucano to complement our OV-10s here, but so far, with all the ruckus in the government, no upgrades are planned for a very long time...

    That would be a killer scheme. Don't forget the USAF trainer scheme!

    Does the USAF fly the Super Tucano? I thought that they used the Texan (Harvard) II? Which is a Pilatus design if I am not mistaken.

    Rick is right.... both the Navy and the Air Force use the Raython T-6 Texan II, although it does look similar so it's easy to confuse them..........

    Any chance you can do a Pilatus Mexican scheme also?

    thanks guys. its been a long time since ive been this passionate about a model.

    i spent friday night and most of saturday making and casting a form and trying to form plastic around it. it all failed. i think i might have had the wrong type of plastic. this is a 1/33 f-16 canopy trimmed down. it was a perfect fit.
    as i suspected earlier my cockpit placement was wrong, so instead of gluing the framework over it( which made the frame stick out too much) i hand painted it. i first painted it grey then painted the green over it. so when you look inside the interior frames are grey.
