1/48 HAL HF-24 Marut...even a Vacuform would be acceptable!

Blast from the past! YES!!! I have been screaming from the rooftops about this for about 20 years. Gorgeous aircraft, and terribly overlooked. The whiffing possibilities are enormous, and being a Kurt Tank design it would even appeal to the Luft '46 crowd. There are probably enough modelers in India alone to make it profitable. At my request, Fantasy Kit World on facebook did one up for me a few years ago.

The Marut would be cool!

That kit has been available since 2010.  Links for Italeri and ScaleMates:

Italeri (1450) 1/72nd scale - C-27J SPARTAN / G.222

ScaleMates.com > Italeri (1450) 1/72nd scale C-27J Spartan

I have one in protective custody that I would be happy to part with for the right price.  :smiley:
