And something that evolved from a trainer to be an attack plane, for instance Hawk -----> Hawk-200 ?

I am particularly interested in the same evolution from an AlphaJet.

It's kind of the upper end of arming trainers, but this was posted to Starship Modeler a few years back.

To properly qualify for the build, you'd have to call it an "AT-43", but you get the idea.

As you can see, this really (another) aviation themed Group Build idea. I'd be happy to 'mod' with somebody else (JHM, I'm looking at you !) it if it ever 'took-off' (pun intended). So over to you guys, let's read your thoughts and ideas..... it wont get onto the calender until 2009 at the earlies so lots and lots of time.

I'd be very interested in this one.  Since I've taught in Dash 8 and 737 sims are they open for entry?   ;D

If not I guess I'll have to do my RAF Britnam Strikemaster...or an AT-45...or a Cessna 172 with machine guns for after the asteroid hits and civilization collapses...

In the US, we spell it out for the other drivers.


I assume an L plate is similar.

Not so much a trainer, but not far off being one:

IIRC Sparrow needs a radar equiped aircraft. Am I right?, where is it?

Wasn't there a proposal to hang Sparrows off a Kaman Seasprite as an anti-FPB weapon? Could it be related to that? It's been said that a Sea Skua is basically a slow Sparrow........
