I've been keeping an eye on it's progress in a related thread on Britmodeller. 

http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235024749-172-american-gyro-ag-4-crusader-by-amodel-spruestest-build-release-in-2017/&tab=comments#comment-2783000

The sprue shots and test build look promising.

Toying with a licence built version with De Havilland engines. Although on reflection, Pobjoy radials would look nicer.

Are we sure Tophe didn't have a hand in its design?  ;D ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Geared Niagara’s in the bright finish cowling face and ring would look the business.  :thumbsup:

I've a feeling I've a set of resin ones in the Azur GA Monospar that may just have to be remoulded...

I just feel cheated every time I see this because it hasn't got rotors. If "gyro" is in the name it needs rotors!
I find it very hard to believe Academy would make a mistake like that he said sarcastically...

A completely absurd design that I have never heard of before. Therefore, I must own one as soon as it becomes available!  :mellow:
