Learned about this company on Facebook via another Canadian Modeler.

Here is something that may get you to dig out those Hobbycraft CF-100 kits out of your stash.

I contacted this resin producer several months back about a CF-100 update set. The resin update set has been produced by Mark Buchler of Flightline Engineering and will be available at the end of January. Have a look at his Monogram Kingfisher update set to see a sample of his work.

Update Set for use with the 1:72 scale Hobbycraft kit. The 34 piece set includes:
- Full Cockpit
- Main Gear Bay, Struts &  Wheels
- Nose Gear Wheels
- Intakes with 2 cone choices (with or without de-icer)
- Mk. 5 Stabilizer
- ECM gear (Chaff Pods, Hard Points, Waist Antennae, Nose Antennae)

Estimated price will be $29 USD plus shipping from California. Estimated release date is approximately January 30 by Flightline Engineering, so ordering will be through his website.

This will allow a CF-100 Canuck Mk.4A/B including updating the Mk.5. What has never been produced before is the aftermarket parts to make an ECM Mk.5C. A Mk.5D ECM can be made by making the cooling ECM grill).

They also have 1/48th and 1/35th products.
Work in progress ::

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