Here's a candidate if someone is looking for a good example of a liaison aircraft, the DeHavilland Beaver. I remember my father flying these out of Fort Campbell, KY.

Well Kittyfritters, that Henschel will just about make up all of the basic wing configurations by adding a parasol aircraft to the mix. Now if we only had a flying wing and a canard! (big joke?)

Welcome to all participants.  It's great to have y'all aboard. 
There's still room for anyone else who feels inspired.
  Looks like a great batch of aircraft to be modeled in this cookup!

I've printed my Skyleada Plans and will be taping them together in sections to fit the building board. The DeHavilland DH-106 Comet for the Royal Canadian Air Force . Just love the shape of this aircraft that was so essential in safeguarding all airline/transport aircraft.  It seems the square cabin windows on the early models caused the fuselage to decompress due to fractures at the corners of the windows of the cabin.  It was a mystery for a long time before they found out the cause of the early crashes.  They found that the oval/rounded window design negated the metal fatigue from presurizing and de-presurizing the cabin in each flight.  The British shared this information with the world and made airliners and transports safer for the world that was expanding to jet powered aircraft!  She certainly is a great looking lady!!!

I have a half built Megow Hs126 in the opossum proof box out in the garage.  I suppose I can squeeze in finishing it.

OS, welcome to S&T. WOW! I had been trying to research an a/c that I would like to build and you have a photo to match. It is a liaison version so it is allowed.

Hey everyone, new member here. I've been building and flying both for FAC and for fun since 2014, and although my time is now more limited due to classes I'd like to keep in touch online and this cookup seemed like a good chance.

Is the Waco C-72 (E series converted to military liaison/transport) allowed? If so, I'll use the M-X peanut plan beefed up for outdoor flying.

Kerak, I thought that the T-6 was used in some far off banana war. Thanks for the info.

Craig, I love the photos that you post. Its better than buying a book.

RM, welcome to the madness.

Tom, I  just pulled a  Bob Holman Navion short from behind some boxes.

airCache, thanks for the information.

alf, how much do you think the Airforce wants for that hulk?

A little L-16A history... These images were taken after the battle of Chosin Reservoir during a disastrous withdrawal in December 1950 and show a 1st Cavalry L16A on the 5th of December 1950 loading a wounded GI at Higuri-ri US Marine Corps base, just look at the expressions on those guys faces. In the background a Stinson L5 taxying past.
