I discover lately this nice little twin-boomer, beautiful! :-*
It is a little fat with its big belly, but this looks just like me, somehow ???
And I am glad you turned the military O-2 into a civilian angel... ;)

EDIT: At first glance, I thought you built 2 twin-boom models there. After checking, this is confirmed: before the high-wing push-pull Cessna 336, you built the low-wing tandem-seat old fighter F-336, and this is the proof:

Nice transformation, Tophe!

I'd have never guessed it would work upside down, too.

Great food for thought and will keep in mind on future projects.

Just came across this, Brian, and I must say Well Done!  A most interesting story and a very nice model.  This takes me back to my Cessna factory days when every now and again an O-2 would come  in for service work, and we would all go out on the flightline to gawp at it  :smiley:

Thanks for a great build and stirring up a few fond memories  ;)

Best regards,
Kem

Great work as always Brian and of course the excellent back story to give it a place in AltHistory :)

By the way, that 'yellow tubing' is a type of heat-shrink tubing used to seal and protect electrical wiring and connections.  Found that at the old Boeing Surplus store in Kent a very long time ago.  Glad you finally found a way to use the stuff since it has a lot of possible applications in model building.
