Well, its a quick build at least. Then you can do what I am with the A-26. I've spent the ladt month installing e-tracts and drawing panel lines followed by riveting with a sleeved brass jig in a trim iron. Added retractable landing lights in the wings, switchable nav lights....

Lots of detail at this point. Next step is to aurbrush weathering and in service effects.. The idea is to get here.... Below.

Re: Need a new twin

Actually the ESM line is where the Tigercat came from. An extremely nice airplane to look at but very heavy. I am trying to find something just a bit bigger to take the weight.

That being said, the full composite versions don't seem to be available anymore so I would expect that the wood wing versions should be a bit lighter.
