Wow that seams like a Lot of Money for such item, Half that price would be more reasonable, Especially with the Quality issues your have noted.

But lease you have a nice way to fill the big hole in the Fuse

Have you installed it yet, Assume it just glues in?

I sent it back. I'll build one for it. Already ordered the parts from Iflytailies. I was going to have to build new instrument panels at a minimum so I'll just do it myself. One of the glaring things that they did was paint the instrument bezels silver. I have never seen silver instrument bezels on any T-6 much less any other warbird.
$500.00 is the most I would pay for it.

Jaketab has provided the FLAP angle in this tread, anyone that can help me out with the AILERON, ELEVATOR and RUDDER throws?

You can download it from the CARF site. It's pretty basic but tells you everything you need to know.

I have the same question, mine is in transit getting delivered any day. The container is in. There were 62 airframes on the container, so I wonder how many of them are Texan's. I'm hoping to pick mine up at Old Dominion on Friday night.

Where to purchase the scale cockpit, not the CARF part?

I'm building one using Iflytallies seats and instruments. I am painting it now and I'll get more pics when it is finished.

I ordered my first kit back in late May after Joe Nall, it arrived in August, but the fuse was broken in half from the shipping company. CARF sent me a brand new kit, which arrived yesterday.

Putting a Moki 250, the AT-6 version and of course it will have smoke and all the lights.

The kits seems pretty straight forward, nothing other than the canopy and building a cockpit should be an issue.

Going to install the lights first, get that out of the way.
