Fantastic set! Hard to pick a favourite, but I love #2 of the Mustang pair!

Am I right in assuming the 2 Harvards/ T.6's are slightly different versions ? Look at the shape of their rudders.

yes they are 2 different versions
the one is the foreground is a very early 1942 SNJ2 that was sold to the navy as a scout ( longer range)
the background plane is a 1943 SNJ3 this particular one was came from South Africa where it was used as a attack trainer and still has the bomb bay doors, after it came back to US it was used as a reno racer . Both planes (and pilots) use to fly for GEICO skytypers
