Just finished this one. It's a 1975 kit that still looks good today. Airfix 1/72 scale Short SC-7 Skyvan. Wearing a colour scheme that it never wore in reality. The Skyvan was never adopted by the RAF, though many Omani aircraft were flown by ex RAF aircrews. Some were used by British forces as parachute trainers and "unofficial" general ,purpose machines, but were never taken up as mainline aircraft.  I already have several of these models ,(see pics) but thought I needed another one! Thanks for viewing.

These are my older ones, the oldest is the Omani aircraft which is now at least 30 years old.
