The AN 01-60FE-4 Parts List that I found among the Museum documents is for the AT-6C-5NA, AT-6C-10-NA, and AT-6C-15-NA & SNJ4. (No revision date shown) As I understand it, the B and C models mainly differed in the usage of wood in place of some aluminum components. This parts catalog does list both the aluminum and wood parts however. Hopefully, the items I'll be most interested in (cockpit items) will be the same for the B. I only have Parts 2, 3 & 4, with Part 2 being partially illustrated. I hope someone has Part 1 and it has additional illustrations.
I recall seeing the DVD set of engineering drawings offered on a web page other than ePay. I'll have to investigate further. Hopefully someone here can vouch for the quality of the set. Worst case, I'll order the appropriate microfilm from NASM and digitize them myself as needed.
I don't see needing to do much airframe repair, but a lot of cockpit parts will have to be fabricated if we're unable to source them, and the engineering drawings will be helpful.
I'm as eager to get started on the Texan as I am to wrap up the Mustang.

While taking a few detail pics of the canopy assembly, I noticed this slot in the top of the rear fuselage just forward of the horizontal stab fairings. The opening, and the patch look a bit rough.
Anyone have a clue as to what this opening was for? I do not yet have the engineering drawings, so am unable to research this.
