I've got a 1/72 MPC YOV-10 kit in the stash, but it has a different turret. How many versions of the real thing were there ?
I was a little curious about that myself - I had the original Airfix boxing of the kit, and the turret wound up on two or three different
bashes over the years. This thread at Britmodeler looks to have some more info-I gather the kit's turret isn't terribly accurate, but I don't know much more
than that. Compared to the photo Greg posted above, I think the kit turret is a little shallower.

They've also announced a 1/35th Sikorsky CH-54 Tarhee (S-64 Skycrane).

Back in the day. The proud arrival of another Shelter type arrangement at our Signals unit was greeted with the Brigadier complaining about "another green box to hide in the HQ area"

Shelter type vehicles, whilst outwardly boring have been few and far between. Just shows the days we live in  modelwise, where boring stuff can become a kit.

November release!

Vietnam USAF Airfield (Cessna O-2A, North-American/Rockwell OV-10А Bronco, US Pilots & Ground Personnel (Vietnam War) (5 figures) Diorama Set. During the Vietnamese War, the US armed forces made extensive use of combat aircraft. Aircraft were used for a wide variety of missions and played a significant role in this conflict. The most heavily used aircraft were the Air Force, the Navy, and the United States Marine Corps. The American army also had its own aviation, which used aircraft mainly for reconnaissance, target designation and air assault strikes. The OV-10A and O-2 aircraft were used for direct support and support of the combat activities of the troops. So, OV-10A performed the functions of aircraft controllers, observation aircraft and light attack aircraft. O-2 aircraft were used as advanced aircraft controllers. The army version of the aircraft could carry signal flares, containers with NAR and other light weapons.


Work in progress ::

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

Updated box art:



Hopefully they will do an RAF Mk.II & a RAAF Mk.VII/VIII (as the top & bottom engine-intakes are different to the RAF version) ?

I'm interested to see the sprues to see if the parts might already be there...
