    Very cool!!! The C-123 is a neglected bird. Will Mel Gibson be in the cockpit?

    No,
    that one is an Aeritalia G-222, designated C-27 in the USA.

    Admittedly, there's some resemblence between the two types, but that is true for almost every twin engined military transporter.

    You are right Michi,

    Two main wheels, turbo props........... I guess it's hard to improve on a good idea.........

    That's a good suggestion for NOBI, john...:twisted:
    Why not designing a G-222 with italian markings? I would love it, and i'm sure ashrunner would love too.

    Is this a generational thing (grin)? I much preferred Air America to ConAir, though I do like Cage movies in general. As for the photo, no, those turbo-props will never do. Gotta have big, round P&W engines to be respectable.

    I don't know Larry................lots of Herky Bird drivers might have a thing or too to say about that one!

    Yeah.......... I'm an Air America guy too, but the image of that Provider busting down through Lost Wages was too cool to forget!

    Watch out for the Golden BB!

    hpept.......... Maybe we can nudge him a liitle, since this is the NEWEST USAF transport, I would be cool to have it in both Italian and USAF markings.

    Reminds me of an Italian Greyhound............ weird I know.

    There's no accounting for tastes. I'm a sucker for big, round engines, fat fuselages, and even multiple wings.

    You do have a point :)

    Tonight I'm working on wing...seperate into 4 parts before unroll. Now I must use 10 pages letter size to arrange unroll part into. Working is slow because some external motives make me work slowly.

    Looks good NOBI. How does designing this one compare to that of the C-130?
