Love the Q500! Experts might know that Field hasn't proposed a Q500, but they would also probably wonder why it hasn't. :)

Thanks Silver Fox. It makes sense to me. Q300 with Q400 engines means low TBO but enough emergency power to climb like a scorched monkey  ;D

Elsewhere, Upnorth was pondering on a South American Stuka. Here's my go -- the FMA I.Ae. 19 Boleadora (here in service as a naval coastal strike aircraft).

Wow! The Stuka heritage is visible, but that looks positively sleek.

Logan: Glad you like her. I was intrigued by Greg's suggestion of Japan coming into the war on Britain's side as per WWI. An ETO Japanese AAF aircraft didn't offer sufficient marking variation to tempt. I am toying with doing an RAAF version though. If Japan was an Ally, it rather makes sense for Australia to source imported aircraft from slightly closer to home.


Listen to this podcast at 48 minutes (right-click and 'save as').  I found it at NYMAS's site.  The whole thing is worth listening to, but 48 min makes for some good whiffery.  It's talking about what Japan's options were in response to the US's economic (specifically oil) embargoes of the late 1930s and early 1940s.

Cheers,

Logan

Thanks EH. Here's another stab at Upnorth's South American Stuka.

Logan: sounds intriguing. Any idea if there's a text version of this anywhere?

Very neat.  As for the podcast, no, sadly.  I downloaded almost all of the podcasts and have been listening to them over the past couple weeks.  Very good and very informative!

Thanks guys. It got me wondering about other stuff from that era that would benefit from a Dart...

[BTW: the raised canopy combines parts from the HA 200 Saetta.]

I believe that requires a double-dart dare.

Love the Turbo-Pfeil Greg! Here's some more Spaniards with Darts ...
__________________________

A pair of Hispano Aviación HA-1112-T1L (aka HA-1113) Turbo-Buchóns of the Fuerza Aérea Canaria. Known locally as the Magido ('Sword'), the HA-1113 were ex-Ejército del Aire aircraft supplied when the Canaries gained independance from Spain in 1972.

The first Magido retains EdA camouflage over which the Spanish had applied FAC markings. These consisted of rudder stripes, six roundels (based on the Movimiento Nacionalista Canario flag) and, originally, 'NACIÓN CANARIA' stencil on wingtip tanks.

Magido 09/E was with Ala 1, Núm 3 Escuadrón de Caza-Ataque at BAM Gando (Las Palmas, Gran Canaria). She wears an unofficial Ala 1 crest on her nose (the white 'casa' being a pun on local pronuciation of 'caza') and a personal marking (the name 'Yaiza' on the tail).

The second Magido, 11/A, belongs to Guanil 3, 3 Haña (CA) based at Goro Tyteroygatra. This is actually part of the same squadron as Magido 09/E (above) but the nomenclature has been changed to local indigenous terms (as have base locations and island names). Gua 3, 3 Haña translates loosely as 3rd Det., 3rd Herd. Goro Tyteroygatra translates as Lanzarote Base (formerly BAM Pto. del Carmen).

Magido 11/A has fresh paintwork applied courtesy of a visiting US Navy carrier. The roundels are of the modern type and vertical striping has been moved to the tail fin. 'FUERZA AÉREA CANARIA' has been stencilled below the cockpit (standard for Madigo with or, as in this cse, without tip tanks).

Magido 11/A carries no personal marks by order. Gua 3, 3 Haña aircraft had previously worn a stylized Guayota (devil) on their noses along with the flight slogan Vacaguaré! ('I'd rather die!'). Note that this aircraft carries no wing guns. Spain had delivered the HA-1113s with 12.7mm Breda-SAFAT guns (ex-CR.32 Chirri). These old Italian machineguns would later be replaced by US Navy Colt M3 cannons similar to the Turbo-Buchón's original 20mm cannons.

The Magido served from late 1972 until 1983 in mixed units with the piston-engined Tabona ('Knife', armed versions of the North American SNJ). The SNJ-6 Palo used to train Magido pilots was augmented in 1978 by the arrival from Spain of a pair of HA-1112-T4L two-seat trainers. Beginning in 1982, remaining Magido were phased out of service in favour of the jet-powered Hispano Aviación Sunta ('Mace', aka HA-200 Saetta).

I see you fixed the canopy Greg. Looks much better than the RW unit.

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