The North American Texan was used to train many of the pilots that flew in WWII. 15,317 were built through 1945. A mere fraction of these survive today but the Texan can be seen (and heard!) at most major air shows.

The giant scale AT-6 Texan/SNJ plan set is 1/5 scale and consists of four large sheets that clearly illustrate all structure as well as showing installation of flaps and retracts. The AT-6 Texan/SNJ plan shows the installation of Robart retracts or fixed wire gear, servos and Zenoah G-62 engine and features three piece wing.  The basic structures use conventional “modeling” tools and materials such as balsa and plywood, and the techniques are straightforward; easily accomplished by anyone with previous model building experience. There are many online building threads at www.rcuniverse.com forums and www.rcscalebuilder.com  forums for Nick’s plans. Tech support is also available via email at www.ziroliplans.com or by phone 9:00 to 5:00 Mon - Fri EST 631-467-4765. The plan includes full-size templates for all the required parts allowing you to cut a complete “kit” before you start construction. If you don’t have the tools or time to cut your own kit Nick Ziroli Plans now carries laser cut wood kits for the AT-6 Texan/SNJ plan. The plans have building notes on the plans. If you choose gear or an engine not shown on the plans you should have them on hand when you start construction to make any changes needed for mounting. Nick Ziroli Plans recommends covering the airframe and wing with 1 oz fiberglass cloth and ZAP Z-poxy finishing resin and the elevator, rudder and ailerons with cloth covering such as Solartex. Nick Ziroli designs are equally at home at the local sport flying field or the winner’s circle at prestigious scale events such as Top Gun and the Scale Master’s; you can add as much detail as you like. Nick Ziroli Plans has building and scale accessories available for the AT-6 Texan/SNJ.
