Does anyone know if it's possible to make a Portuguese Air Force version from the kit? - though I'm probably asking that a bit early as it's not released yet... doh!!!

Possible? Sure. Easily, not really. AFAIK the Portuguese AF used Reims-Cessna 337s, which is really a different animal from a military O-2A/B. Not impossible, but not just a matter of markings.

The C-133 has seriously got my attention as does the C-5, really happy with all three additions though, love O-2's!

I'd like to see them include markings for the VFA-125 NAS Fallon range control bird...

I will be building a Rhodesian version which is also Rheims based so needs additional fillets on tail fins, wing fences, STOL wing tips, bulged pilots port side window and revised cabin door with pair of windows in lower section.  All fairly easy stuff.

Good to see that it's actually coming, will finally have the big three FACs.

 

Not LSP but I'm surprised to see a 1/48 O-1 also listed, hadn't seen that announced before. Wonder if that means they also will plan to do a 1/48 O-2 as well down the road.

I'd like to ink that if they go thru all of the trouble to kit a 1/32 O-2 that they will shrink it to 1/48. That's one bird in need of a new kit in 1/48 scale.
