. VI and Mk. IV will

Do you mean mk V and IV. From what can be read on Norseman mk IV was WW2 main production military  variant and Mk V was post war civil, I think two higher marks were sole prototypes

Nope; Mk IV was version for RCAF (less than 100 built). Major version was Mk VI aka USAAF UC-64 which had redesigned fuselage to carry more cargo (approx 750 built).

Then it is wrongly described in Wikipedia... For sure it is not consistent between Polish and English texts in Wiki...

I tried to find the Norwegian book (English language) but must have been really imaginative in where I filed it.  It will be needed when I set out on the Matchbox kit.  However Putnam's Canadian Aircraft since 1909 has the following:

Mks I-III underpowered, not successful

Mk.IV with 550hp Wasp more popular and bought by RCAF, six loaned to USAAF as YC-64

Mk.V retained for post war civil use (V for Victory) but basically reworked Mk.VI

Mk.VI revised version, deeper fuselage for more fuel, produced in considerable numbers for USAAF as UC-46A

And WELL worth having!

 

I've been waiting with bated breath for these kits ever since they've been announced. I've even got a set of Gibbes Sepik Airways decals to go on one of them. Sadly the sheet gives the chequers on the rudder in black; they were actually very dark green, but I have a cunning plan to get around that ...

I want a Norseman for my Canadian BCATP series. They were used for experience flights for new wireless operator trainees... although the actual training experience wasn't necessarily productive as there were multiple guys in the plane and only one radio set.

 

There are Matchbox versions floating around that I was resigned to buying. Hope to see this new one this year.

Can any Canadians help identify the unit to which it was attached?

I'm not a Canadian but I came across this:

A brief history of each individual norseman https://norsemanhistory.ca/Aircraft.html

Unfortunatly looks like the author's spellcheck apears to have changed a lot of the years to 2022 etc.

 

Found a better list https://caspir.warplane.com/bin/warplanero.exe?action=webprograms&subaction=airserialscanadian&aircraftno=200001146

.....a civilian floatplane boxing might be in Dora's future?..........With decals for half-a-dozen Canadian bushplanes! 

That would be my preference, too :coolio:

 

Fingers crossed.

Surely a Glenn Miller boxing anon? 

 

That would require more than just new decals. The USAAF C-64 was the Norseman Mk.VI which was different from the Mk.IV.

Israel also operated the UC-64 / Mk.VI, not the Mk.IV. It would be like sticking Spitfire Mk.IX decals on a Spitfire Mk.V model....
