I would love this model. It is one of the few Cold War acft that I like. Dunno why, I just do.

Actually, I reffered to the typo in your first post.
But it's good to know that it is not such a big aircraft.



Sorry, I have numerical dyslexia. I very often totally mix up numbers.

Somewhat surprisingly it's not really that large. A Lancaster has a longer wingspan, and a Stirling has a longer fuselage. What it is, in contrast with aircraft of its day, is chubby. It's at least twice as wide as a Dakota, perhaps even 2 1/2 times.

After years of neglect, then further years of suffering the Mach-2 kit, fans of the Fairchild C-123 Provider have finally been *ahem* provided a decent 1/72 injection kit. Here is Roden's take on this once ubiquitous cargo hauler.
