Neil Gaunt is open to marking suggestions Evan, drop him a line and add what you've said here. If you have any photos it would help ---
Apparently other folk made the same suggestion, AIM informs me that the Cessna 310A kits have now been revised to include "Songbird II" markings (the original "Songbird" was a Cessna Bobcat - coincidentally, Squadron has 1/48 figures of a "flying rancher" and his daughter to go with the Classic Airframes Bobcat and they should work with the 1/48 310A kit, too).

There is a lot of chatter about this over at the Facebook Group Canadian Military Aircraft.

But no sign of it either at AIM or Hannants. Can any UK based folks add to this?



Work in progress ::

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

Anyway, it was announced sometime ago on their website, along with a bunch of other projects (DH Drover in both scales for instance). But all the announcements have been removed ---

I've already got an Argus in 1/72, a vacuform kit produced by a guy who goes by the name Santos. Herryll's Execuform also produced one and an outfit called Cooper's Models made some 3D undercarriage and props for it. I've got a couple of those sets too. I've got a Airways Britannia and a line on another, but I may get one of the Mach II kits too.

Another poster says:

"They are also doing a Yukon and CL-44 conversion as well. So plenty to look forward to."

Well I have this plan to convert my 1/72 Airways Vac Form Britannia into a Yukon, I have a line on another one which I have earmarked to make into a Guppy variant. The Mach II kits have only just come available and I can see one or maybe two finding their ways into the stash.

Of course, there's always some Britannias to make too  ;)  Canadian Pacific operated Britannias and one marked up like that (I've seen a decal sheet somewhere Yeah well, Aircraft in Miniature does them ---  d'oh) would go great alongside one of my Gene Hooker Vickers Vanguards in Trans Canada Air Lines markings (and Welsh Models are also doing a 1/72 Vanguard too)

I was looking on Hannants website to see what was new at AiM, because Neil hasn't updated his website for nearly a year now.

Well I came across this conversion set:

I was going to post this is a thread here about using some Darts on a project but I couldn't remember which one it was ---   :-X

So, Lancaster anyone, Lincoln, Shackleton ?

I just got this in the mail yesterday, AiM's CL-44D conversion. This is so one can convert the Mach II Britannia into a CL-44. I'm going to use my Airways Vac Form Britannia though, I'll see how it gets on.

You get four white metal props, four resin Tyne nacelles, four fuselage plug halves (front and rear plug), two swing tail hinges and one clear windshield. The instruction sheet is really good I thought (sorry no photo of that)
