Considering how old the Hawk one is, if you can find it (I don't remember Testors ever re-popping that one), I imagine this one will be popular.  Also great whiffing material.

In the latest issue of Air-Britain Aviation World, there's a photo of one which was left to the elements up in Alaska. I'll re-read the caption but I think it was recovered and restored.

EDIT: The caption say the photo was taken in 1982 and it was on floats back then. It continues to say that this is the same aircraft that appeared at Air Venture last year in a restored state but on wheels.

The sheet has been OOP for 14 years. It does occasionally show up on Ebay but at crazy pricing.

The owner of Leading Edge Decals, Dave Koss, from I have been told is a bit eccentric. He generally does not reply to any correspondence. Have you had any success Robert?

He will occasionally revive OOP sheets but which sheet what and when is known only to himself.

According to Boeing, it had a maximum useful load to empty weight ratio of 1.75 to 1.  Therefore, if its empty weight was 1111kg, we are talking about a useful load of just over 1944kg.

Either way, the box art makes me think of something from Avatar.

Francillon gives the following:

Rotor diameter: 31' 9" (9.45 m)
Length: 20' (6.1 m)
Height: 9' 3" (2.74 m)
Empty weight: 2,450 lb (1,111 kg)
Loaded weight: 5,000 lb (2,268 kg
Max weight: 6,300 lb (2,858 kg)
Rotor loading: 6.6 lb/sq ft (32.3 kg/sq m)
Max speed: 138 mph (222 km/h)
Cruise speed: 109 mph (175 km/h)
Rate of Climb: 2,400 ft/min (12 m/sec)
Hover Ceiling in Ground Effect: 12,000' (3,660 m)
Range: 98 miles (158 km)

It's roughly 40% of the size of the K-Max with 42% of the load capacity,
really not too shabby for the period.

See here - particularly the first paragraph on the top of the second page.  The engines were essentially compressed air generators and also provided forward thrust.

BTW, there was a proposal for an armed version with a recoils gun:

I reckon their MC.72 has to be loads better than the old Artiplast offering.

Carving the MC-72 out of a bar of soap with a pocket knife would be better than the artiplast kit.

 Woo! I will have to get the Pc 7 - it'll go nice next to my Delta 2 MC 72.

Appearing on MikroMirs Facebook page is news that AMP is to release the Canberra B2 in 1:72 scale

The AMP Canberra B.2 release follows the Canberra T.Mk 11 they released in 2018. Apparently S&M Models released this kit in 2017 and its thought the moulds originated from AMP.

Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.
