are some photos of my RTAF (Royal Thai Air Force) T-28D Trojan 1/32 scale from
Kitty Hawk. Thai was received “T-28D“ from US since Vietnam War. The series
that Royal Thai Air Force received were T-28D (USAF) , T-28D-5 (USAF) ,T-28D-10
(USN). This one was T-28D-10 from USN (T-28 with Faired Gunpod , 3 Ordnance
Pylon , USN serial and airframe).
This aircraft was serial no # 0-37711 she was stationed in 231 Sqn. Wing 23 - Udon Thani with id # 23105 . After withdrawn from service in 1984 she was displayed at Wing 71 - Surat Thani entrance. In 1991 she was restored and stationed in Tango Sqn. Wing 41 - Chiang Mai.
model was out of box with little detail up in the cockpit. I think Kitty Hawk
made the great kit , the kit detail was good there was RTAF decal in the box but
still needed small correction in cockpit detail to convert to Thai model. The
kit was include 2 in-box weights but it was not enough to prevented tail-sitter
(I knew it when the kit was completed @_@ ) then I needed to add around 20g in
nose wheel bay to made nose down. And for the weight increase I attached small
iron bar to the nose gear to prevented damage.
I chose to armed with .50 caliber Under Wing Gondola x2 , Mk.82 500 lb Bomb x2 , 100 lb Napalm Bomb x2 , LAU-3 Rocket Pod x2 .
was build this T-28D for my dad , that he used to fly this aircraft since he was
in 231 Sqn. before he was changed his aircraft type to F-5A/B (but he still came
to fly T-28D for Tango Sqn.)
I do hope that you will enjoy with the kit. Thanks.
