Product Description

Hobby Master  T-6 Texan Cuatro Vientos Scale. Diecast metal and plastic parts.

In the 1950s Spain established economic and political ties with the U.S.A.. Because of these new links Spain was able to procure F-86 and T-33 aircraft along with transports and training aircraft. In 1954 the first Spanish Air Force aerobatic team was formed at the Basic Training School using six T-6s. In 1957-58 the Spanish Air Force used the T-6s as COIN (counter-insurgency) aircraft during the Infi War. This war was against the Moroccan Liberation Army who claimed territory that Spain considered belonging to them. The Spanish AF installed 7.7mm Breda-SAFAT machine guns in each wing. They also modified them to carry 200 kg bombs or unguided rockets under each wing. Spain discontinued the use of the T-6 in 1986. Some examples of these aircraft can be found at the aviation preservation museum Fundacion Infante De Orleans/Cuatro Vientos, located in Madrid, Spain.
