Monograms' AT-6/SNJ kit has been around for quite a while. The plane trained many flyers and was used for many years with some still being flyable to this day. Yellow Wings, who specializes in decals for planes between 1930 and 1942 has come out with a new set for USMC SNJ-3's from 1942.
Included in the package are two complete decals sheets with markings, color bands and insignia for two aircraft. They are printed by Microscale and have great color and register. Wing Walks are also included for both aircraft. Next is a full color sheet showing the color and markings along with aircraft performance. Lastly, there is the info sheet detailing the history, band information, prop color info and more along with a guide to specific paints.
The planes represents on this sheets are:
- USMC SNJ-3, 1st marine Air Wing, Gunnery Trainer, Quantico, VA 1942
- USMC SNJ-3 Instrument Trainer, NAS San Diego, VMD-25 Photo unit 1942
Fuselage colors vary from polished aluminum on the photo plane to blue/gray on the gunnery trainer.
This is a great set for a venerable kit with some great markings. Highly recommended. My thanks to Yellow Wings for the chance to review the set. Go get some!
