1/72 scale Tugan Gannet

Postby jvenables » Mon Jul 10, 2017 12:40 am

Gents, a few weeks ago I read about your forthcoming 1/72 scale Tugan Gannet. Any idea of ETA and RRP?

Also, I garnered the impression that the decal options will include only RAAF markings; is a civil version proposed also?


Oops - just noticed it was mentioned on the "main" forum page a few weeks ago. But I suppose my queries still stand.

Shame you had to modify the box art though - the original one with The Rock in the background looked great.

They have not arrived yet but we expect they will be in the $65-70 range. Judging by the sprue shots and the research it should be the definitive Tugan Gannet kit.
There were transfers between the RAAF and civilian operators in both directions. While this kit has the RAAF window layout it should be possible to build a civilian one OOB. Depending on which one you want, small mods may be necessary. None had fancy colour schemes or markings so simple letters are probably all that is needed.
