Now we need a 1/72 C102 Jetliner to build all these beautiful birds.  :)

Indeed!

There was a rumour on IRSM site that Sharkit was going to produce a 1/72 Jetliner. No sign of it yet on Sharkit's website. Mind you, they've released a CL-84 in 1/72nd so hope springs!

Anyone know Renaud Mangallon? Maybe a nudge is required before Sharkit pups?  ;)

Canadair-Douglas CC-233

Next installment for the alternative AltCan: the Canadair-Douglas CC-233 Labrador.

With Douglas ending C-133B project, the time was right for a joint venture. A shortened C-133 fuselage was mated to CL-44 wings, tail, and Tyne turboprops. The RCAF used the CC-233 Labrador to shuttle NATO fighters to Europe.

Unfortunately for Douglas, the USAF didn't bite. Hopes had been pinned on riding on USAF CL-44 orders. When that [RW] MATS order fell through, so too did any chance of a USAF 'C-233'.

Those Labradors are great!

Even better is that you made one based at Namao, I grew up watching Hercules from there pass over town all the time.

Re: the AW 123, I gather that your starting point was the P.23,
and were you thinking increased span or the same as the P.23?

Re: CC-233 Labrador: Nice doggy.  :)

What would a C-124 Landseer look like?  ;)
Work in progress ::

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

Cheers chaps -- much appreciated!

Upnorth: more Namao-based transports to come ...

Jon: Yes, the P.23 was my starting point for the AW.123. For the prototype, the rear fuselage and tailplane are almost identical to the Karas'. So too are the outer wing panels. The centre section would be widened slightly to take the twin engines and 'holed' to accommodate the retracted wheels.

TBG: The Landseer would, of course, be an air-sea rescue type painted in a distinctive black and white scheme. Popular with pilots (and the rescued) but less so with ground crews who had to mop up POL spills (aka Landseer 'slobber').

'North: as promised, here's some more Namao-based heavies.

The Keewatin filled a gap between tactical and strategic transport for the RCAF. Another windy backstory but, long story/shorter: CC-152A is a Kawasaki C-1 outfitted for the RCAF by Canadair. The CC-152B was a trials conversion to BE.53 Pegasus (Bristol Aero Engines Canada). The production STOL variant was the CC-152C.

Thanks EH. And now for something a little more bellicose -- the Avro Belenus bomber.

Belenus ('brilliant'), BTW, was the celtic Sun-God. Seemed to fit for a nuclear-armed bomber.
