This looks interesting.
Hopefully there will be a Swedish version as well (called B 5 in the SwAF). They say that they are discussing it.

I wonder if they wil catch the complex shape crossing areas between the fuselage and the cowling around the leading edge wing root, MPM did not with their 1/72 scale version

I`d be interested in a couple of these if the price is right to make a RCAF & a SAAF Nomad. Eve a couple of each as there were some nice schemes,

Cheers

Looking good, Amaru. Keep 'em coming!

Do you plan to release versions with both fixed and retractable undercarriage? I realize that will get messy and probably require entirely different wings. If you're just doing one of the 2, then my vote goes to the retractable undercarriage version.

Cheers,
Mark

Hello gentlemen

if you check our Fb page you will see hints that evidence both fixed and retractable landing gear versions are being worked on. Currently we are finishing correct volumetry so we can work specific versions from there.

That's great news, Amaru. There is a surprising number of different markings options available for an aircraft that was produced in such relatively small numbers. Really can't wait to see how this kit turns out.

Cheers,
Mark

What a lovely looking aircraft that I never knew existed an hour ago. I love that Iraqi shot. Up there with the Sm79s flying down Bardia (?) High Street.

You make a kit I will be forced to purchase it!

Unfair, unfair I say and put me down for 5, (2 fixed and three retractable undercarriage), please, and possibly more... :winkgrin:

Homebee,

Thanks for keeping us updated on developments. I'm watching this one VERY closely. Like Christian, I'm in for at least a couple of these. Can't wait to see the plastic.

Cheers,

Mark
