Some time in the late 80's this model was offered in a plastic kit in Australia which is cool considering this aircraft was built down under.I can't tell you much about the type other than it was used for medevac and agriculture spraying. Then was in Mel Gibsons Mad Max Return to Thunderdome very cool scene...  No matter what aircraft the model maker choses the template is the cornerstone of your project.I'll get this mocked up and post some test fitting.

I'd love to find a kit of that one.  I always liked to see that thing take off.  It looked so different when compared to our F-4s and F-105s>

The local skycops I worked with would always complain that it was forbidden to take pictures of it because it was a classified aircraft.  It took me months to find out what it did.

I think this plane has been has been a fun project. Need to detail this a lot more. This model is quite petite for being wood. This close up will give the viewer an idea how the flaps will look to how bare the wood is.
