You can't outrun Death forever.
But you can make the Bastard work for it.

Boxart 1/48 Vultee Vanguard Mk.I
Great artwork from @ Marek Rys



You should click on it for a larger image.

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

I'm happy for the DHC-2 Beaver to come with just wheels, it can sit parked next to my An-2 Colt. (I'm contemplating getting a Beechcraft Staggerwing to go with them, too.)

The Vultee Vanguard is, oddly, a new one for me but I like the look of it & either the Australian Army Air Corps or Royal Australian Marines Air Arm may get one.

Or the BT-13 Valiant trainer's offspring after injesting 'substances banned in sport'?

And for something different, take the floats from the Beaver and add them to the Vanguard... ;)

To replace Army Aviation Gladiators?
