Wanted, AModel Kamov KA.26 Hoodlum ...
« on: December 05, 2017, 01:51:31 AM »
Im on the lookout for an A Model Ka.26 Hoodlum (standard version, kit 7240), any leads please give me a shout or if anyone has one for sale/swopsies :)

iv a hankering to build the one demonstrated from Glasgow Airport following an appearance at the 1975 Paris Air Show. Ka.26, CCCP-26184, called at Speke, Liverpool, 14th September, following which it routed through from Southend/Rochford to Glasgow/Abbotsinch for further demonstration flights. Whilst in the UK. it was under the aegis of Helicopter Hire and being promoted by Scottish Aviation as a possible type for European use/licence production. I actually recall seeing it flying over my home one sunny afternoon back then (i thought it was a Huskie!)

cheers, Joe

That kit is still widely available and not too expensive.

Hmmm...it does seem rare.

I have a 1/48 one but that is safely hidden away.
All hail the God of Frustration!!!

Sorry, I had a brain fart - that particular version of the Ka-26 seems to be out of stock everywhere, even on Ukrainian sites. There are other AModel KA-26/KA-126/Ka-226 sill in stock, as least here:

and the exact model on ebay:

Good luck Joe, I discovered a Hungarian YouTuber's channel with a ton of Ka-26 clips and fell in love with the type. If anyone wants to spend some happy hours in front of a screen (plenty of other types are featured):  https://www.youtube.com/user/KamovRider/videos?disable_polymer=1

I have a 1/48 one but that is safely hidden away.
Remind me to hire a black ops team to infiltrate the GTX site.
