Ok, not sure if many of you know this petit twin engine made by the spanish CASA, but it was, until its recent demise, the main workhorse of the Portuguese Air Force for a number of roles, including transport, paratroopers, sea recon and medical evacuations.
Up until Special Hobby brand new kit, the only available Aviocar kit was (is?) a Vacuform model.
I stumble upon the box today, when touring a local hobby shop, and even being a 1/48 modeler, I just couldn’t resist buying on impulse. My first 72nd kit in over 20 years!
I had planned building the Alpha-Jet from Wingman, but the uniqueness of the kit, plus the fact that not only it comes with some fantastic decals for the Tail art, the version I’ll be doing even has a painted paratrooper on a door about to jump… now thats unique alright
