DSTO Beech 1900 (Second Batch)

Postby erussell » Thu Nov 02, 2017 4:49 pm

We have taken the Amodel Beech 1900 and converted it into the DSTO radar test version. It has radomes and aerials in various places. Basically a civil aircraft it was given a RAAF serial for one operation. More info here

Nice! Will be ordering one soonish. Do you know what paints Dick used?

A home-made mix based on White Knight white enamel I believe. It's standard Beechcraft Grey otherwise known as Matterhorn White and we have provided a colour chip and FS reference in the kit.

That's not right, we still have some left. I'll put one aside and contact you after the Canberra show.

These are now listed as out of stock on the Redroo web site. However a second batch is under consideration.
Also coming are more Tugan Gannets and we are hoping to get some Piper Tomahawks with RAAF markings!
