Ok, A!

Now it's time for You to admit that somewhere, out there, You're secretly running some undercover aircraft industry  :)

And if GTX once again says that this is classified info, I know he's plotting with You  ;D

Sorry Vuk,
there is no aviation industry on the Sunshine Coast of B.C., it's all aging hippies and
yuppie vacation lodges. The only smells are fish, fir trees and cannabis.
Repeat there is nothing to see or find. Don't bother looking, as there's nothing to
see. Remember there is nothing to see.
Now assume the lotus position and repeat 'nothing to see, nothing to see ...'

Yes, repeat the mantra ... Om!

As Jon siad, nuthin' here but aging yuppies and fading hippies. So don't even think of looking in those 'abandoned' boatsheds!

And besides, the local runway is only 2,400 feet long.

Exactly  ;)   Anyway, what possible use could hippies and aged yuppies have for a Dash 8 on floats anyway?

Yes agree I though I had today today when at my local toy / model shop and saw a Tamiya Dewoitine on the same shelf as a raft 1/48 Alison Mustangs and P-40s

(Copy-&-paste from above-linked thread.)

Love the look of the CA-14 Wallaby, the Boomerang canopy & tail suits it well. 8)

This must have been before CAC developed the CA-14 turbo-supercharged Boomerang variant (for some reason CAC numbered each "block" of Boomerangs differently; CA-12, CA-13, CA-14(A) & CA-19).

In my mind I can see a CAS variant with inverted gull wings, 4 x 20mm cannon & rockets/bombs, too. CA-16 Thunderbird?

Edit: Sorry, CA-15/Fw .... The title & in-article references are somewhat confusing. :-\

For Old Wombat: A nautical CAC CA-14A 'blank' (somehow Sea Wallaby just sounds wrong!)

Looks very nice.  The BMW is still a dead giveaway for its German heritage, though. Why don't you do an Aussie naval one with no spinner? Maybe a Bearcat or Hellcat-style prop?

Also, how many VBs did the ground crewman consume before painting that Aussie roundel on the underside of the wing? It's looking a bit fuzzy.  :icon_beer:   ;D

Cheers,

Logan

2 cans per man per day - that man appears to have been the tech who painted that roundel. ;)

Struth! The drongo who painted the underwing roundels has been re-assigned (he's now applying a different sort of brush to the dunnies at CAC's off-site facility at the Essendon Aerodrome).

Logan: The spinner and cooling fan kind of go together. Also, I wanted to retain the 'Hunnish' look for the R-2000 cowling. Other than slightly reducing the diameter, CAC was doing a complete copy job.

Australia was very good at doing complete copy jobs during WWII, buildings reproduced from UK sourced plans were built including snow chutes and other northern hemisphere features by people who were probably clueless to what they were.
