Totally cool choice if you do decide to build one. Couple of my U-2 buddies use to own one and I've logged about 4 hours on the stick. Now this guys are flying for Southwest and the Skymaster is long gone...boy I missed those days. Well, I will follow with great interest
I always considered that if I make an 0-1 Bird Dog that I would also have to make an 0-2 to go with it. Nice to know that you had some stick time in one (I have nothing at all on this aircraft, so pilots and/or maintenance notes would be a Godsend).
I am not sure what version to concentrate on? The purist in me says do the 0-2A without spinners and armed to the teeth as a pure FAC thoroughbred, whilst the 0-2B PSYOPS opens up new possibilities (rarity value here, whilst I personally like the later USAF and ANG 'Lizard' (European 1 and 2) schemes, which look really cool (I haven't even considered the USN or Army versions as yet?)...Decisions, decisions?...
