Also there with you guys!  Ive been looking for a Roden O1 locally, to no avail. Ive also just picked up Kev KPL Publishing book on the O1, and Erics build of it. The detail and clarity is really great. Its REALLY made me want to pick up an O2 when it comes out, as Im digging the FAC stuff lately. 

 

I actually saw that exact bird at Osh Kosh EAA Air Venture back in 2015. Really cool to see it up close and personal.

I live close to HMAS Albatros and there used to be a Cessna 0-2 based there, it flew over my place quite often, a lovely sight and sound, pity it isn't there any more. The Temora Aviation Museum has one in their collection of aircraft.

I really hope Roden stick by their commitment and do release this kit soon, here is another picture of this beautiful aeroplane, this is the aircraft at the Temora Aviation Museum in NSW.

I passed on the Bird Dog, but I'm going to have to have one of these...  Got a good few hours in them.  Great airplane!

Don't know if anyone's ever read this before, but this is an eye-opening (if not hair-raising) account of how the O-2s got to Vietnam.  And it wasn't how you probably imagined!

So anyone who said he could fly a plane was handed a clipboard and a logbook, and said go fly it to Vietnam?
No pilot License, nothing?
If you could stagger around the pattern they'd stuff you in and wave you goodbye?
What the hell were they thinking???

I'm thinking I'll grab one of these also when they come out. The O-1 doesn't do much for me but the O-2 certainly has some charm about it.

I wrote to Roden asking the status of their new 1:32 scale Cessna 0-2 kit, I received an email today stating that the kit will be released at the end of November.

This is normally where I would insert some pun about "gas humor", but all the good ones Argon.

Mate, first rule of comedy, if you have to explain it it's not funny :)

And by that I mean that if you have to explain your punchline, your material is aimed at the wrong audience and you should try and adjust your set to suit the local flavour

 

(see what I did there, I played the long build up and then....DOH!)
