1/48 HAL HF-24 Marut...even a Vacuform would be acceptable!
Once upon a time there was one.  I think Squadron may have also done a resin one.

Ok, I will have to redouble my search efforts.

Looking in the PAK-20 book, it doesn't list a 1/48 kit of it Greg (two 1/72 kits though, Alliance and Warrior).  Of course that doesn't mean there wasn't one, just that the author never came across or heard of one.  Also as I don't have the Amendment Issues Books of this book I couldn't say if he ever did find one.

YES - 1/72 Belphegor.   I second that.

With our luck, A-Model will put it out in styrene and we'll be sorry...

Why a single jet/turbofan on a cropduster? A turboprop might be more efficient at the low altitudes that this abomination (but in a good way!) flies.

The Belphegor isn't Myasishchev at all, if that's what you're refering to. It was PZL all the way.

I'm afraid you are sorely mistaken on this one. Only the Lala-1 demonstrator was a pure Polish product. Wikipedia says:

Quote
The Mielec M-15 was (...) manufactured by PZL Mielec in Poland for the USSR agricultural aviation.

That  says that PZL built it, NOT that they designed it! IT also says:

Quote
"The Soviet side insisted on using a jet engine in a new plane, and also participated in the design process."

Myasishchev was involved in the design process, hence the "M-15" designation.

CAC CA-27 Sabre (aka Avon Sabre) in 1/48th scale.
This work for you Jeff

http://www.hpmhobbies.com/products/High-Planes-CAC-%27Avon%27-Sabre-complete-kit-%28Kit-1%3A48%29.html


Almost but not quite.  It is a conversion kit and not a complete kit in a box.  Oddly enough, I have a resin 1/32nd scale CAC CA-27 Sabre conversion that I found in the bargain box at Discount Models in Tacoma (University Place) several years ago.  It along with one of my Hasegawa 1/32nd scale F-86 kits will hopefully see it converted to the CA-27 unless someone offers a complete injection molded plastic kit as an alternative.  I would still prefer an actual kit of the CA-27 over a resin or vacuum formed conversion just for the sake of keeping my sanity.
