Beech King Air 200

Gentlemen!

Ihave been searching the internet for a Beech King Air 200, and it just isn't there. This is a model I very much would like to have, but so far it has sees impossible.
Now I think I have the solution to the no-existing Beech King Air...

Some of you might be familiar with this thread:

Our russian friend cuts magnifisent kits with CNC, and he can make the kit, unfortunately he needs 3 to order to start development of the kit. I dont't know what it will cost but, but seems the only way to get hold of a King Air

Personally I'm looking for a fairly large model, 100 - 125" wingspan, but I guess he can make different sizes. He has put me up for one (look at this post)

So the question is, is anybody else willing to commit for one?

I think the King Air 200 would make an awesome model!!!

Ben have you seen think one?
it's a card model. You can blow out the prints you the scale you want. Not sure if it has fuse formers though.

For this kind of project I don't think blowing up a paper model will be scale enough...

There are very accurate 3D models avalible, that can be used for generating the CNC files. I have also researched the possibilities of scratch building one, and have some quite good resources. But it will take a lot of time just to produce a reasonably good drawing.

So the question still is, are there anyone willing to commit to order?

That King Air has been in development since 2011, don't think it ever will be realised... Getting a composite plane like that is extremely costly to get into production so I guess it's only the prototype that ever got into the air...

Anyway I would be happy to have a slightly larger model

Yes I have! My investigation into the matter is that this one is a one off... No plans or any other info is availible...

But the video shows that a big King Air is a cool plane

I agree with my friend from NY Ben. . . . A King Air of any size would be a nice change of pace Sir.
