Product description

Ryan PT-20, with the factory designation STM, followed the previous sport and trainer variants of the Rayn ST (Sport Trainer) planes. The "M" in the designation means Military, Ryan supplied these aircraft to the US Air Force (they later preferred the PT-22 version with radial engine), to China, Dutch East Indies and several Latin American air forces. The American planes were used for training on US soil, those in the Dutch East Indies had a more colourful fate. Part of them was equipped with floats, the others had a wheeled undercarriage. They were used for training both army and navy pilots. After a Japanese attack, part of the Dutch planes was destroyed, some were captured and used by the Japanese Air Force. The rest were evacuated to Australia where they joined the RAAF training units and served there till the end of the war.

MPM/Speciol Hobby first made the PT-20 kit in 1995 and in 2004 we reboxed it as the PT-22 version. Both kits were sold out in 2006. But when cleaning up the warehouse recently (AKA the Tin House) Special hopbby found a whole box of these sprues. So they decided to re-introduce the kit to modellers. The sprues are not really up to Special Hobby's current standards so they created a new product line with the fitting name "Vintage treasure".

The decals are new and offer one USAAF plane and an ex-Dutch one in RAAF colours. The windshields are vacuformed. We recommend this kit for experienced modellers only. As Special Hobby have a very limited number of sprues you can only buy the kit via our website or at modelling shows where they participate.

 

But  Aviation megastore would not be Aviatation Store if we did not try to get some and indeed we managed to secure a bunch.
