Noorduyn Norseman, A71-6, 4 Communications Unit RAAF Archerfield Qld 1945.

  1. Sweet little puddle jumper. Well done, Allan!

  2. Don’t see many of these beasts modeled, Allan…my dad flew one (I got a lotta rides in it) in the 60’s-70’s in our hometown. There was a sport parachuting outfit based at the airport there and they had a couple of these they used for the jumpers.

  3. Allen, good to see one built. Nice flawless finish. Struts a little too short?

  4. Nice smooth paintwork and well done borders between the OD and NG.

  5. Nice job Allen,very well finished I have the same kit in my gallery in Israeli markings, check it out.

  7. You replaced the engine, and a few other things, and it’s almost out of the box………. excellent work, Allan.

  8. Excellent as the Lightning, well done Allan !
