Have to say this is a very welcome kit from a company that I think will get it right.  Very excited and will definately add one to my list of buys for 2020.  I will go for a Vietnam FAC but could be swayed by something flown by the Air America.  (Sorry Honey about the creaping expansion of my stash)

How big is the difference between the O-2A and the Cessna F337G Super Skymaster?

 

I would like to build one of these:

Externally the difference is the extra windows on the door/side and the top of the cockpit.

Ok, so no size differences?

Skymaster

Length: 29 ft 9 in (9.07 m)

Wingspan: 38 ft 09 in (11.81 m)

Height: 9 ft 4 in (2.84 m)

 

O-2

Length: 29 ft 9 in (9.07 m)

Wingspan: 38 ft 2 in (11.58 m)

Height: 9 ft 4 in (2.84 m)

 

A difference of 7 (.1778 M) inches in wingspan or about 1/8 inch (3.175mm) in 48 scale.

I could do a Portuguese AF "Puxa-Empurra" (Pull-Push) Reims-Cessna FTB 337!

Completely forgot the FAP operated these too !..............That now means I have to build at least three (USAF - Vietnam, Rhodesia and now FAP !)

In addition to the window configuartion, the vertical tail joint to the booms looks to be another obvious difference, with those being much more faired in compared to the O-2.

Great news, and already more than one boxing planned from the start. I was expecting Roden to get it done in 1/48 after their release of the 1/32 kit, similar to what they did with the O-1.

 

Will be curious what ICM plans are for the left side window for the O-2A; original small window only (like Roden) and/or later enlarged window option?  I really hope it's the small if they do only one but having that second window option opens up even more OOB options for markings.

 

The AOA decals 1/32 sheet for Vietnam O-2s will be redone for this 1/48 kit with at least one scheme swapped out for another.

Yes the vertical tail joints were reinforced. 
Also wingtips, entry door, prop spinner comes to mind.

Why thank you, Mr.Uncle Uncool!

I'll back up Mr Sinacore in his request. It'd be awesome if ICM released an accurate Su-15TM kit in 1/48.

Yeh, it would...

Cheers,

What does this have to do with the Cessna O-2A ?.....any connection ?.

Exactly. mention of an Su-15 has NOTHING to do with this thread, please keep it on topic.

 

Thx
