I haven't found a known 3d model of this acft. So that means scratch build. I figure while we are here, we can have some fun. One version be a "realistic" model, with smoke spray, and another that is totally outfitted with guns galore and a number of hardpoints that rival an a-10. 2 passengers? more like 2 gunners if you ask me.
If any of you take on this enormous challenge, i salute you. Take your time, and dont rush too much, but dont forget
Thanks you"Copperhead": yeah, we've gotta fend off those dastardly YS bugs
