Here's an idea - how about using these sheet balsa plans as templates for uncommon aircraft? They're already boxy and should be easy enough to downscale.

Paul and Ralph Bradley's Model Airplane Hangout - Free Flight Models

Where else can you find a Dornier 27, Cessna 180, Auster Autocar, Beagle Pup, and Navion?

Or may be by me
But boxy not always mean fast or easy to build.
Here's a surprise for you - I see you built the Choctaw and Beaver from the TMSC PL-107 Soya. But check the 1:200 Canon PL-107 Soya and you'll find it's the older version with different not so boxy aircraft, an Alouette II and a Cessna 180 floatplane! I noticed that the Alouette II has floats and the wrong 2-blade rotor, but you can substitute the rotor from Bruno's Alouette III and maybe landing skids from his Kiowa or similar.

There's lots of recolor possibilities for both aircraft, I'm planning to do a Cessna in Philippine markings. For the Alouette's open tail framework it might be better to do a black fill like PRModels or R&PModels.

Of course you know about the Hughes 300 included in Olli Bizer's Calypso, right?

The "Alouette II" of PL-107 Soya is actually a Bell 47G, so the 2 blade rotor is correct.

I'm digging the Cessna 180.

Right as usual Carlos, I should have looked more closely. I thought the bubble was too elongated for a Sioux and the backside threw me off, now when I look at the tail frames it is definitely a Sioux. I also wondered why the turbine engine wasn't shown even with just rolled up paper tubes.

Still, lots of potential recolors!

Yes it was the tail frame and the missing turbine that did it for me. Plus the cabin looked too short for an Alouette II (my brother had a big alouette II toy when we were children) and the Bell 47 was licence-built by Kawasaki so it looked like a more natural choice for a japanese agency.

I looked up the instructions of the Hasegawa kit for confirmation.

I see I haven't been here in a while... Pucara, Skyhawk and F-15? Awesome, I really look forward to these.
Here is some of my new work, some World War I planes and air forces of Nigeria, with new Agusta AW109, JF-17 Thunder and Dassault Alpha jet

Thank you very much Pips. I already downloaded the WWI planes that many of them where boxy already like the Breguet.
Thank you for the welcome addition of the Alphajet and the A 109. Both of them could be subjects of multiple recolors.
Looking forward to the release of the DH 4.

Thanks for this new set, Pips!


Here's what I've been working on this week. I haven't designed the canopy and landing gear yet but I'm liking the first 2 test-builds so far...


These are F-100As with short abd extended wings ang fins. I probably won't keep the shorter horizontal stabs as I'm not sure they actually existed.


The F-100D will require a small fuselage extention in addition to new wings and fin.

Very nice, a good cockpit would greatly enhance your model.
Thank you for sharing.

ps: as you know, there were a few Armée de l'Air F-100

Thank you!

Yes I know. And I've just modified the parts for the F-100D which is the version used by France. Still no canopy for now. Maybe tomorrow.

Export users of the Super Sabre were France (F-100D/F), Denmark (F-100D/F), Turkey (F-100C/D/F), and the Republic of China (upgraded F-100A with the fin of the F-100D plus 4 RF-100A and some F-100F).
