As regards my kit, its still not arrived yet, its from the Ukrainian dealer some have mentioned with high excellent feedback, earliest delivery I was given was before Christmas, Latest the 26th Dec ... and of course that was all still at close down here postage wise, did get a tracking UK number, it says error or something, but still not unusual when expecting kits or parcels from outside the country.

I'll leave it a week and chase it up, am not bothered about the delivery time really, it was dirt cheap postage and packing and I never expected next day delivery, just keen to see mine arrive and hope it has none of the badly warped fuselage issues that I read about ... I know I'll need an AM decal sheet too at least :)

 I'm in the same boat with a Ukranian seller. Excellent service in the past, but package may have been caught up in the Christmas rush. Willing to wait patiently here in Canada.

Is the O-2 (as kitted) operates by the Rhodesian Air Force? Can't find much on it online.

 

The Rhodesia Air Force operated Rheims Cessna as the Lynx.  To convert to a Lynx requires some but not drastic changes.  I'm currently away travelling so away from my reference material but off the top of my head:

 

- add STOL kit = turned down wing ends and fence on top of wings

- additional fillet to base of vertical stabilised (fin)

- close off cockpit top windows

- change entry door and windows

- replace pilots window with bubble window

- add SAM shrouds to exhausts

- add two over wing 7.62mm machine gun pods

- fit appropriate Rhodesian under wing stores

Yup, new year postal holidays here too now, an awkward time to buy or sell, especially overseas, kit will arrive.

Hi guys, I haven't really had a look around for this kit - but, where could a guy find this kit for sale in Europe??

Cheers

Alan

 

Yesterday my local dealer mailed me that this kit just arrived in his store. Today I will receive mine...
