Ocidental + Belcher Bits 1/48 scale
North American NA-64 Yale

North American NA-64 Yale

This is the Belcher Bits 1/48 North American NA-64 Yale, kit number BK 4. The model is one of Mike's complete kits which consists of an Ocidental Harvard Mk. II and a Belcher Bits resin conversion set along with a set of EZ Mask canopy masks.



Also included is a decal sheet offering four schemes (French Armée de l'Air, captured Luftwaffe and two RCAF Yales).





The conversion is simple and well engineered and the only cutting involved the removal of the Ocidental Harvard nose and to facilitate this step, Mike provides detailed instructions which clearly indicate where the cuts should be made.



I added the pitot tube and wingtip lights as they are not provided in the kit and I used some of the Eduard photo-etched set for the T-6 to add some detail to the Ocidental cockpit.

Aside from that, the photos show the model as it comes in the box.
