MPM is to re-release its 1/72nd A-17 kit as Northrop A-17 Nomad Mk.1 - ref.SH72292 Source: http://www.mpmkits.net/2015/10/sh72292-nomad-mki.html Box art V.P.
It spent 74 years beneath the surface of freshwater Lake Muskoka in the middle of Ontario, Canada, about a 2.5 hour drive from Toronto. The Nomad's tail was raised yesterday (October 28, 2014) but it was originally found in July of 2010 after an approximately 3 year search. (http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2011/07/24/71_years_later_missing_plane_found.html ) Associated articles from today's news: http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2014/10/28/downed_second_world_war_plane_recovered_from_lake_muskoka.html and background information from the RCAF website from September of 2013: http://www.rcaf-arc.forces.gc.ca/en/news-template-standard.page?doc=the-northrop-a-17-nomad-3521/hlouaj92 It may not be as thrilling as finding a Halifax but I believe this is another good find and it allowed the airmen to "come home" after 70 long years.
