Has anyone ever produced a T-29C or D (styrene or vac - any scale?) I seem to recall a C-131 about 50 years ago and vaguely remember a T-29C at nationals about five years ago. I have searched the usual suppliers, but no joy. Anyone have a tally? TIA.

Proteus models makes the resin kit, and you can get one at Airline Hobby ( www.airline-hobby.com )

I think I remember a vac-u-form kit, possibly from Combat Models, but I'm not real sure there.

. . . would have been the little box-scale Comet/Hawk/Testor kit. Somewhere around 1/120 or so as I recall.

The all-vac 1/72 kit would have been the Execuform, now out of production. Proteus models in England(?) has a partial vac/injection series of Convair kits in 1/72. I've never seen one, so can't speak to its quality.

But, I wouldn't think it would be hard to convert it to a T-29.

It was a little on the crude side compared to the Hawk C-131. Adios, Larry.

Field Artillery brings dignity to what otherwise might be merely a vulgar brawl.
