Sorry, I didn't explain correctly myself, I was asking who is the author of the model or the origin of it? Maybe if your own design.

Great job, those little planes are so neat. I know most people get into the jock fighters and big boy bombers, but give me a good light utility or workhorse cargo plane anyday.

This is a very nice model. I had to buy one immediately, as I spent a lot of back seat time in Birddogs as a 1st Cavalry Division aerial observer in Korea 1962-63.

Incidentally, Mario’s model is of a very famous aircraft, L-19 Serial 50-1327, which is on display at the U.S. Army Aviation Museum at Fort Rucker, Alabama:
http://www.armyaviationmuseum.org/index.php/museum/aircraft-collection/2-uncategorised/64-fixed-wingCessna L-19
http://www.abpic.co.uk/photo/1374994/
http://www.warbirdregistry.org/o1registry/l19-501327.html

The model has additional markings, including an Eighth U.S. Army insignia on the rudder and a five-star general’s emblem on the starboard side of the nose. These markings are not on the display aircraft at Fort Rucker, but were applied to the aircraft in 1952, when General of the Army and President-elect Dwight Eisenhower visited Korea.

The aircraft on display in the Aviation Museum at Fort Rucker is the one that General Eisenhower, comedian Jack Benny and actress Marilyn Monroe all used.”

Fiddlers Green also offers a model of an L-19 serial 50-1327 and gives the back story of its use as the Eisenhower airplane.

I look forward to building this one.

Don
