By the way, for those who don't already know, Special Hobby are discontinuing the Azur and MPM brands, and are selling off all the kits in those boxings at a SERIOUS discount at the moment. There's also a lot of CMK bits in the sale too, and P&P from the Czech Republic, at lest to the UK, is reasonable. Ends March 1st:

Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.

MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

Well, the curse of the rare/vac-form kit has struck again. Shortly after I've paid more than I usually would for a Huma Do.27, Special Hobby have announced a kit of it:

This has GOT to be a favorite for all sorts of bush plane and COIN-type scenrios... :wub: :thumbsup:

The Do 29 would make a nice subject for a kit too.

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Now that is an aesthetically-pleasing aircraft.  You could make a start on modelling it by using an engine nacelle from a Pucara or a conversion for Airfix's Jetstream.  I'd been thinking of using something along the lines of an Allison 250 similar to the installation someone did in a Great Lakes aerobatic aircraft.

That is nice, looks like a smaller Turbo-Porter.

One like the idea of doing is the Rover engined Turbo Chipmunk, but with the Canadian bubble canopy for a more modern look, maybe with retractable gear.  Must pick up an AZ Model kit.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
