Here is my North American SNJ-3 at USNAS Pensacola built from the old Monogram kit of the AT-6 Texan. All raised detail was removed and rescribed , with rivet detail restored using a fine drill where necessary.

A Falcon canopy was painted, cut and fitted to give a more realsistic open effect for the sliding section. The dropped flaps and under wing sections were embellished with some ribbing, using very fine Evergreen strips. The gun and pitot tubes were made from steel tubing.

I used Reheat harness buckles and masking tape for the seat belts.

Painting was done with Floquil Railway Colors' Bright Silver for the aluminium laquer finish. The other paints are Testor's Chrome Yellow Gloss and Chrysler Engine Red.

Decals are from Aeromaster set No. 48-387.
