Nice. All it needs now is a Beaver to go with it 😉

Chuck in an Otter and a Twin Otter and hopefully the Auster family . Many years ago I watched Captains of the Clouds, a Canadian WW2 Flag Waver with Jimmy Cagney. Left me with a fondness for Hudsons, Yellow Harvards and Canadian Bush Planes.

Great movie I watch it about once a year.

Thank you Dora for all of your interesting subject matter - I love the variety. I'll definitely pick up your Norseman. Any chance of including Israeli Air Force decals? I also support the suggestion of a Max Holste Broussard. There are many privately owned Broussards with beautiful schemes.

Of course.
I haven't decided yet for sure, but we'll try to cover as many options as possible.
Perhaps it will be several themed boxes.

A military Broussard would be great- the weapons fit is hilarious - FN (or even MG42!) door gun and a bomb rack made out of dexion and two bits of wood - its in the manual!

Sounds like "aftermarket" to me - got photos? Send 'em to Quickboost...

I am working on a real Norseman 2 days a week.😃

We nominate you to post a very detailed walkaround when the new kit is released.

 

Just kidding... :D

The Norseman was a favourite of mine and my dad. We built a semi-scale radio controlled version back in 1993 as a large trainer for him. I built the 1/72 Matchbox one for him a few years ago.

I'm yet to see anyone else build one of my Broussard kits, despite around two dozen being shipped around the world!!

Seems to be partly a Mk.IV and partly a Mk.VI (UC-64). Same mistake as Matchbox did. Needs corrections to do either variant.

Wrong.
Any differences will be taken into account. Different fuselages, landing gear, etc.
Two different models.
These are only preliminary, general renders so far.

Still very much looking forward to this irrespective of mark numbers!!  But a Beaver and a DHC-3 Otter would be fantastic. The Otter especially as the old Hobbycraft one has lots of inconsistencies.  Cabin windo sapcing undersize fusealge... 

A Vazar one would be nice too😉

There is a resin Broussard in the pipeline but if Dora Wings will do an injection moulded one we better stop the preparations.

Hands up, Stephen. I keep meaning to start her but I want to do her justice and so I've been hanging on. I just acquired a decal set, altheough I might be looking for an alternative. Rest assured that she IS on my build list :)

Interesting :). I agree, an injection one would be preferrable, and I do have Stephen's excellent resin kit. Nevertheless, I'm not comfortable with too much resin in my banana-like fingers. Something is liable to break! ;)

 

Now, back on subject ....... This is great new kit :)
