I've just completed a couple of CAAC aircraft in 1/72, both from Special Hobby. Wirraway and Boomerang, both derived from the same North American NA-16, BT-9 design (although the Boomerang via the Wirraway) as the Harvard!
The Wirraway wears the marks of an aircraft flown by No.4 Squadron RAAF which actually shot down a Zero over New Guinea in 1942. Fun but challenging builds, particularly the Wirraway which had very bad instructions, required heaps of extra fettling of cockpit frames and location pins for the cockpit floor being in wrong locations! I have included an RNZAF Harvard for the 'family tree'
