Would you consider the Fairey Gyrodyne?

You would be spoilt for choice,

something to consider i hope

Is that a TriPacer with the wing moved down and an extra engine added ?

Yes, an Apache would be very neat. Maybe the twin-tail proto and a classic red and white one on floats for encore .

Wonderful work.

Regards,
John

YES PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There hasn't been a Piper Apache in paper. This was the first production twin engine Piper previously called Piper Twin Stinson and made to compete with the Cessna 310. My father bought one in 1956. This particular aircraft is still flying. Note that it has the same livery as the Tri-Pacer you just gave us.
Thanks Gary for honoring classic private airplanes. GOOD LUCK and greetings from worldwide paper modelers fraternity. The photos, very old and not very good quality shows me and my dad in Cartagena and the Apache parked outside our home near Bogotá in our local airclub airport now called Guaymaral. Those were the days!!!!!!!

The Apache lends itself to be made in many versions but, in my opinion, the original one is the nicest. With floats? Excellent variation. The Apache was extremely popular due to low price and good performance. It was also easy to fly. I remember when my father allowed me to control his Apache when we were flying. And I was 11!! Perhaps I'm biased but I'm sure you understand. Thanks again
