OK so I am going to start a build. This will be my second. I am building the AT6 Texan from House of Balsa.. The Micro Electric Version
I can't show you a pic of the box since I don't have it yet. It is coming today.
What I can do is attach some pics of what I am thinking of using as a covering pattern. My last model turned out kind of ugly, So I am planning ahead. It has occurred to me to just do Standard military covering.. However unlike the Cub which seems to always be the same... I have seen AT6 models with every color in the rainbow and patterns accordingly
Here are a few schemes I have come up with. They all Incorporated the same basic colors, since I ordered a selection of covering. The covering I purchased was... from Hanger 9 the parklite: creme, silver (aluminum) yellow, and Orange, and the solarfilm metalic red. I also have the most part of a roll of Yellow microlite. I hate the microlite yellow so If I decide on yellow I am thinking I will buy the parklite
so I am attaching a few drawings I have done. I have not included any of the standard military patterns. Which I may just wind up doing.
The thing is.. on my 1st model the thing I had the most trouble with was the covering. I have learned from experience, that when you push yourself.. you improve so these schemes are designed to challenge me.
here we go:
anyone who has an opinion please state it. I really hate do to stock stuff, but I am seeing that in the scale world. Standard color schemes seem to be.... Well STANDARD
