I built a model of the AT-9 back in 1984. I won several contests with it in control line scale before selling it. Later it ended up at the Pima Air And Space museum here in Tucson. It had a wingspan of 60 inches and was powered with a pair of OS .40 4-cycle engines, had flaps, landing lights, and retractable landing gear.
I'm now designing another in one sixth scale with a span of 80 inches. It too will be for control line and will be powered by a pair of OS 1.20 twin cylinder 4-cycle engines. It will be painted either 909 from Wright Ptterson or hull number 124 from Yuma as drawn by Paul Matt. Right now I do need fhots for the inside of the cockpit. I do have a shot of the dash panel, but would like photos of the rest of the interior. Thank you, Bill
