Picked one of these up recently  - an impulse buy. Pretty sure I can do something RAF-ish if I can find a suitable canopy.



Not sure if white/grey or white/red or red/blue livery..... decisions, decisions.


And if that doesn't work maybe a single tailed one of these....



Now where's the spares box ?

So.... why don´t build L-200 straight OOB and only give him "What if coat" ?
I have three Czechoslovak, three IDF/AF and one RAAF What if liveries "doodled"  ;)

Not a kit I was aware of at all

If I get time (and for once the timing is good and I have an almost clear week) I may do that. My first thought was to make it USAF but that actually would be real world! Kit comes with USAF option. Got to think something more exotic.

Which one Chris ? The Dominator is quite recent and I think there must be something similar in the pipeline because the sprue includes a cockpit floor and seats but the 'canopy' is a solid plug. Anyway I believe I have found a suitable transparancy from a Cessna 310 resin kit (Vacuformed and two in the kit so could screw up two kits in one!).

Roll on midnight so I can get started !

The Dominator.

Every time I read Beagle 306 Basset in your title I automatically think of Liquorice Allsorts and Bertie Bassett   :banghead:

I cant remember which branch it was that had that theme for their stand at the Nats. a few years ago.

Oh yes, that was a brilliant display!  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Muilticoloured indeed, but which branch was it ? Was it Dorset by any chance ?
Does anyone have a photo, I have checked my files and I do not appear to have one of it ?

If you changed the manufacturer to British United National General Aviation Limited, you could call it a Bungle Bassett II... :wacko:

Two grey plastic kits - what could go wrong?

IME A Model kits require two weeks just for the PSR.  However this one looks pretty good and it is one of their newer tools.
Good luck.

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

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

Agreed re the early A-Model kits. I've heard some good reports about the more recent ones however, so best of luck with it  :thumbsup:

So I had to investigate that!  It turns out to be marked as 170709 ( its c/n ) which fled from Cuba to Florida and was tested at Wright-Patterson.

Don't have any more details yet, nor the full FY serial

Edit: found this report and photo in Flight, 1971:
https://www.flightglobal.com/FlightPDFArchive/1971/1971%20-%200430.PDF

It was originally one of the ten supplied to the Cuban air force.

After evaulation it went into storage at the Army museum at Fort Rucker, subsequently passed to a college as a technical training exhibit.
