Another fine model!

I spent a certain amount of time flying in these things in the 1980s, so your model brought back fond memories. Including a trip to the Puhakuloa Training Area on the Big Island of Hawai'i with my Japanese counterpart and an exciting crosswind landing at Bradshaw Army Air Field, after which General Shigematsu told the pilot, "You attacked that runway very well!"

Thanks, Don! Glad my little model has a stamp of approval from someone who flew it

Finished the MC-12W, but given how different this one is, I think i should test build before I release it. It's a longer model based off the king air 350, and of course all those sensors could lead to some fit issues as well

I should make clear that I was flying IN the C-12, not flying it.

The next version you are working on looks interesting.

After a test build, all of the new parts came together quite well. I'll try to finish the landing gear and props on the build so I can show the completed model on here tomorrow, but here is the mc-12w for anyone interested:

Re civilian models, I am planning to do a couple soon, probably next. I still want to get around to an RC-12 guardrail (it's the main plane that inspired me to start this design!) and a few super king airs for foreign air forces (australia, philippines, malta, pakistan in the plans) but am currently open to suggestions for a recolor. if you find a civilian king air you like, i can definitely try to make it happen

Still procrastinating finishing my MC-12W build, here are a few quick recolors: a British Shadow R1 and a Togolese Super King Air 200

First non-military King air

Here is a brightly colored king air 350i that I just finished coloring. This particular model is essentially a testbed to ensure that certain navigational instruments function properly. I haven't test built this one yet so the alignment might not be perfect

Next up should be a quick Maltese air force Super King Air 200, then probably another civil one
