Newfie Tradewind?
« on: November 10, 2007, 06:39:07 am »
As you may remember I was asking recently for info on UN decals for the Revell Convair Tradewind.

It's time for a serious rethink.

Perusing the decals at Aviation World yesterday I was smacked upside the head with a beautiful set from Leading Edge that would nominally be used on the CL-215, but an eyeballed measurement shows that they might work. Imagine these markings on a Province of Newfoundland Tradewind water bomber:

So, whaddaya think?

That's one of the most striking marking schemes I've ever seen, Rat! I say go for it!
