Here`s my very latest completion..

Rodens T-28, done as a Raven, F.A.C. `d` version ( or as near as i could get )

mostly out of the box with just modified Skyraider pylons and Willie Petes from Rodens Mohawk

and decals ( what there are of them ) from the spares box

i did put a bit of stiff wire from the nose wheel to the leg as it`s very weak

and lastly an outside shot with my previous Roden T-28 effort

hope you enjoy looking at ( Thanks again to Dwight Emery for his assistance )

Wow!!! I love the look of that T-28, gonna have to find one now in 1/72. You've done a fantastic job with the finish, weathering looks superb.

Really well done Trojan, superb paint and weathering, looks beautiful beside the camouflaged one.

...and try to read the book "The Ravens: Pilots of the Secret War of Laos", it was in this book that I encounter this little aircraft and its incredible feats.

but in pictures i`ve seen whether due to weathering or not it appears lighter so i used a lighter grey in this case. Colours fade and weather in a fairly short time in operational use so i don`t goe by exact matches, just what the eye ball tells me. Cheers

..half way through the `Secret war` by Billy G Webb, equally good reading. The more i read about their exploits and the secret war, the more fascinated i become about the whole thing.
