Ciao a Tutti,
this is the Occidental Texan. The kit is very basic and I build it oob. Overall  the fit is quite good (except canopy). Eduard mask was used for the canopy painting.
Aluminun parts were painted with MM metalizers, for the yellow Ive used Gunze hobby colors. I choosed to dress it in Italian training school colors in Galatina (Lecce) at the end of the fifties.
I kept weathering very light as these birds were not dirty. I am quite happy with the outcome.
Happy modelling.
Giuseppe

Like the above statement..........excellent model. 

I have known Andy from Cali Columbia for a decade or more and recently he posted his "scratch-built" Texan on www.largescaleplanes.com; (LSP) about a month or so ago.  If interested, go look for it.

Again, you have a great model!  RJW
