Guys, a decision has been made - PT13D version with a Lycoming R-680 engine.
Let's focus on markings. Any suggestions?
OK, R-680 it is.
I suggest the:
1) U.S.Navy "Yellow Peril" overall yellow color scheme.
2) U.S. Army Air Corps yellow wings blue fuselage color scheme.
These are the basic schemes for most of the 2,141 R-680 engined craft that were used in the USA.
If it is not too much trouble do you think you can give us decals for the3 variants of star insignias from the prewar red center in the white star on a blue circle, the white star alone on a blue circle with no red center and the white star on the blue circle with the white rectangles on both sides? Also the red white and blue rudder. Over the years from the 1930's to 1945 there were slight variations of these basic schemes so I guess it would be up to you to select the individual plane markings you would like to offer.
Personally I would like to see the markings of the major flight training bases, like Pensacola for the navy.
Do you think you can later offer an add-on set of floats for the Navy's float version? Sorry, but i have a thing about float planes and flying boats.
In any event, many thanks for offering these wonderful old biplanes to us.
