Announcing “Building the Kitty Hawk T-6/Harvard in 1/32 Scale”!


Recommended Posts

I’m pleased to announce that the next title in our Build Guide Series will be Building the Kitty Hawk T-6/Harvard in 1/32 Scale, by Chuck Sawyer, along with a second build by yours truly.

 

The book will feature two builds, the first being my own out-of-box build to show how the kit goes together without resorting to any modifications or aftermarket products. The second, flagship build of the title will be Chuck Sawyer’s typically forensic examination of the kit, with many refinements and corrections to the kit parts, including relocating the main landing gear to a more accurate position.

In other news, Building the Hasegawa/Alley Cat Ki-100 in 1/32 Scale by Harvey Low has been delayed slightly while we await the final piece of the puzzle. It has also been re-framed as the second title in our Build Article Series. With any luck, it should see the light of day around the end of the month.

Stay tuned for more news and information as it comes to hand!

Is the KH T-6 kit readily available these days?  I have built two and would quite like to do another but finding a kit is very difficult, next to impossible.

 

The Zimi re-release is imminent. Hannants has both original boxings as future releases:

Sprue Brothers lists at least one of them:

And it looks like Modellbau-könig even has some in stock:

I'm sure other suppliers will have some in due course, but I know other Zimi releases of the Kitty Hawk line have already made their way to market.

Thanks Kev, I'm tempted to order one from Modellbau but there is an important issue if you're planning to build a Harvard that the cockpit framing is wrong as supplied.  I think it was AlleyCat who offered a Harvard AM set some years ago but AlleyCat is no more and no alternative exists to my knowledge, not even Aerocraft.
