1/72 - Diamond Da-42 "Twin Star" by Amodel & "Dominator" UAV by SOVA-M - released - new boxing by Amodel

Based on the article and some of the rare photos I've found too, the standard "manned" version of the kit will be ok to make ZA180 as the bulged windshield is included in the box.

I never saw the RAF DA.42 carry the EO / IR turrets. The one shown above was never in RAF service but was operated for the MoD by DO Systems.

ZA179 & ZA180 were the two RAF ones, there are very few pictures of them online but with some digging some can be found.

They reverted to civil identities G-DOSA & G-DOSB after use in the sandpit.

 

I have one photo (culled from the web) of ZA180 with the EO turret (flying shot) plus a pic of the nose of one of them in Iraq fitted with it as well.

I suspect the hardest part will be the tiny 'Royal Air Force' behind the cockpit!

Thanks for posting those, really interesting and useful as I intend to build one on the RAF Twin Stars.

Kind of reminds me of the Beagle 206 Basset.  I really like the look of this aeroplane but would prefer a kit of with a standard nose.  Would look smart done in similar markings to the Beagle ……..

Buy any kit as they all contain the main details sprue containing u/c, prop spinners, footsteps and 3 types of nose including the standard nose.
