I bit. I needed new batteries anyway. Now they're just coming along with an airplane - which I didn't need.

There's always room for more planes, the secret is to sell the ones you don't fly anymore

Thanks Rampage for the purchase, I hope you enjoy her.

Thanks for starting this Johnvh, SUPER sexy shots there too.

I really hope people go to town with custom schemes on this one, she's a great bird for it. One of my clubmates too an old sample I had and really did a nice Navy training type scheme. I'll post a video on my own channel soon with details. Note that production models have clear canopy windows FYI.

I was going to do the U S Army U-21, but I think the bright colors of the Navy T-44A will both stand out better and withstand being in the sun better.

I have my vinyl ready to go, plane is ordered, I'll get Callie on some decals as soon as the plane arrives and I can get some measurements.

John, that sunset picture is stunning! No doubt this is a very awesome rendition of the King Air. Happy to see more scale civilian planes coming to market. I love my warbirds, but also love scale civilian aircraft. Nice break from sport and dedicated aerobatic planes.
