    A very undermodelled one (and it does have contra-rotating props for that scale realism) - the De Havilland Hornet

    Almost looks like it already has brushless motors installed.

    The only real problem with a Pucara is that tailplane could be a weak point (not much support, especially in a foamie)



    btw - the Hornet and the Moskito have one thing in common - both wooden construction
  • how about a boomerang:

    Love this plane, if you ever get a chance, head out to the Oakey Airforce base in Queensland they have one on display in a small aircraft museam on the on site, its open to the public. You need to stand next to one of these to really appreciate it.

    Actually there are three of them (with a fourth on the way)



        * A46-122 CA-13 "Suzy Q" (VH-MHR) with the Temora Aviation Museum



        * A46-206 CA-19 "Milingimbi Ghost" which was formerly with Lynette Zuccoli at Toowoomba, Queensland until donated to the Museum of Australian Army Flying at the Army Aviation base located at the nearby town of Oakey is now on static display.



        * A46-63 a CA-12 from 1943 first flew again on 26 June 2009 as VH-XBL. The restoration includes the provision of a passenger seat.



    A full-scale, airworthy replica with many original parts is based in the United States. Several others are under restoration to fly in both Australia and the USA. This includes A46-90 which is currently being restored to airworthy status.

    I love it can,t make out the wing span though, a nice 70/80 inch one would be perfect.

    How about a Blohm und Voss P.170? There were some seriously cool axis special projects during the war. I've got an ebook or three on them if it will help with pre-production research:

    The Graupner He-111 sucks, glossy finish, not really scale-like, not so good flying performance at scale speeds, tends to stall. And it´s pretty expensive! Must be flown at too high speed for scale, an EPO Version could do much better and can look much more realistic.



    A friend had the Graupner 111 and he says it was wasted money after we tried to get it to scale speeds. His 111 crashed hard at an landing approach and was destroyed.
