Roden 620: Cessna O-2A Skymaster

Recommended Posts

After seeing this build  http://www.militarymodelling.com/forums/postings.asp?th=114101&p=3 I've amended the review regards the cockpit interior.

 

Maybe Harold could be persuaded to produce a cockpit set; seats with belts, and electrical equipment..? Perhaps spinners - one of the AOA decal options require them, as will the Caracal set if they include a Portuguese aircraft.

Id be all OVER a set of X2 spinners for the O-2, as the option I want is an O-2B that will not really require any big mods to the interior, but will require modification to the rear exterior of the aircraft for the speaker setup, as well as a set of spinners front and rear, which as Andy points out, the kit does not come with.

 

Harold, up for a set of X2 O-2 Spinners?

Nice, interesting on the new variants by Roden, doesn't look like they're even on their own website yet.

 

Quite timely as I just received the decal set from AKA.

Damn...............didnt even notice that.  Sorry about that, stupid fat fingers!    Typing one thing while meaning something wholly different.   *CORRECTED*

Great news on the RhAF Lynx version.

 

Another promised after market addition, a nose ballast kit https://hlj.com/product/SAC32128

 

For once, SAC's copycat policy has been done smartly enough that buying this set might prove useful ...

Agreed Hubert. However, Id still not be 100% confident about that MLG not bending. The nose gear and engine weight are a great addition, although I still might be inclined to think that Erics fix for the OOB landing gear still may be a better fix for the MLG bending issue. 

 

I think your right though, for roughly $20 USD, I think it might be worth it.

Sorry I’m late, this is a very interesting subject to me for sure. I may be (ok I know I am) kind of odd but I’d like to see all kinds of civil a/c in 32nd scale! And on floats!

Not meant as a slur on SAC’s product at all but I have doubts white metal will support this model if the plastic legs won’t. I’ve got a 1/32 Ju 88 Mistel with a main gear negative camber angle because the axles can’t support it.

Just a thought.
