The North American T-6 Texan!

I started this plane many months ago and gave up because I couldn't get the plane to fly, now with my new control surface skills I came back to it and nearly rebuilt the whole plane, leaving only the cockpit and wings for me to rebuild upon. it was a long painful time to make it the way it is.

AG - 2 is backlights for cockpit
Gear is Gear
AG - 7 is simulated warning light
Normal flight controls

What is the T-6?

The North American Aviation T-6 Texan is an American single-engined advanced trainer aircraft used to train pilots of the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF), United States Navy, Royal Air Force, and other air forces of the British Commonwealth during World War II and into the 1970s. Designed by North American Aviation, the T-6 is known by a variety of designations depending on the model and operating air force. The United States Army Air Corps (USAAC) and USAAF designated it as the AT-6, the United States Navy the SNJ, and British Commonwealth air forces the Harvard, the name by which it is best known outside the US. Starting in 1948, the new United States Air Force (USAF) designated it the T-6, with the USN following in 1962. It remains a popular warbird aircraft used for airshow demonstrations and static displays. It has also been used many times to simulate various Japanese aircraft, including the Mitsubishi A6M Zero, in movies depicting World War II in the Pacific. A total of 15,495 T-6s of all variants were built.

    @ACEPILOT109 decorations which add zero function and serves a pure aesthetic purpose, often which are elaborate.

    Thanks! All advice taken and will be approved upon. But what do you mean by eye candy?

    a decent build, I don't blame you for the esthetics because you're on ios… but it's not great at all tbh...
    performance wise, it's really a pain to get this off the ground and not crashing. too slow, very sluggish, nowhere close to the real thing. one thing that's nice is the cockpit, I'd advise against rushing for eye candy because it ruins the build entirely.
    keep improving, one day you'll be the best!
