Open Box Model: The T-34 Mentor is a propeller-driven, single-engined, military trainer aircraft derived from the Beechcraft Model 35 Bonanza. The T-34 design was similar to the Bonanza but had a narrower fuselage which incorporated a two-seater tandem cockpit and bubble canopy. This change provided greater visibility for the trainee pilot and flight instructor. The T-34 was introduced in 1953 and still remains in service, more than six decades later.
This specific T-34 model is the T-38C Turbo-Mentor, which was developed in 1973. The T-34C has been used by the Naval Air Training Command to train numerous Naval Aviators and Naval Flight Officers for the US Navy, US Marine Corps, US Coast Guard, and numerous NATO and Allied nations. With over 35 years of service, the T-34C is gradually being phased out of the US Navy's inventory and will eventually be replaced by the T-6 Texan II.
This handcrafted model is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail and makes a great gift for any veteran, aviation enthusiast or history buff.
