Reminds me of the T-28 Trojan but perhaps a bit chunkier aft. Certainly looks a rugged and capable trainer.

Thanks. Actually, the aft end is sort of nicked from the T-28.

Nicked? Not at all. Borrowed it with all intentions of returning it...
... of course that would make it a bit more difficult to fly. :)
