Considering Zdenek Macháček (aka ZM) artworks usually illustrate Valom, Fly and AZmodel boxings it's reasonable to assume that one of these brands is to release a new tool 1/72nd kit of this British STOL transport aircraft. My guess: Valom..update

And the winner is Valom

To be followed

Excellent news! Early days yet though, still awaiting the Bristol Freighter

from Fly which was due summer '17!

Cheers, Paul

Nice if it comes true.

There's a decent selection of colour schemes to pick from. 

A Single Pin would be nice too.

I knew there was a reason I sold the Hallam Vac Twin Pioneer I had. I could definitely be tempted by one of these.

And for those near Edinburgh a real one at East Fortune to compare with. Enjoy.

Hope the 1/72 does well then roll on the 1/48?

Yes, yes, yes! Now I can sell my vacform kit. I LOVE the Twin Pin- it reminds be of a British downsized C-125 Raider. A Flamingo and Twin Pin in the same year? Life is good!

I remember well one in Classic Wings Downunder magazine that was painted like a tropical/"desert" island. That would be an interesting modelling challenge!

That's certainly one of them. The others were VH-BHJ, -EVA and -EVB. The first two were new buys, the others ex-Royal Malaysian Air Force. Geoff Goodall's site (http://www.goodall.com.au/) has pictures of all of them.

 

Drawing that scheme for -AIS is going to be a challenge (which I will take up this afternoon, after the base drawings have been done!).

I want one of these! Not built a Valom kit before. How are they?

Variable, but if you don't expect everything to be shake'n bake, you won't be too disappointed. Like others, however, they seem to be getting better all the time. Their Ouragan is nice, and I understand their DH Albatross is a belter. The Twin Pin certainly catches my eye, and will probably be heading towards my stash -perhaps even my workbench.

 

Just don't ask CedB about the Airacuda he bought off me at Yeovilton a year or two back. I believe he still has to resort to valium every now and then when the memories become too strong.
