Pete,

GWS Makes a foam DHC-2. Inexpensive, rugged (needs to be with me), flies nicely, I got mine at Tower a while back, I think I saw it recently at my LHS. Should be easy to find. I have no idea what Mk 3 might designate though !!!!

Regards,
Doug

The MK3 is a factory turbine version. The GWS kit could easily be bashed for it. You'd have to cut your own fin and rudder. The fuselage would have to be chopped right at the wing LE and extended about 2". Then toss the cowl and graft on a few pieces of foam to replicate the turbine cowling. Motor stick will have to be moved forward as well. That'll allow a lighter brushless motor upgrade in place of the turboprop.
