Yes I know affordability is relative. Unfortunately NOT my relatives!

On a side note, who decided that Buffalo and Walrus in the previous post were good names for airplanes? I won't even mention the Fruitbat. These names don't exactly instill fear upon the enemy.

I had assumed the whole Fruitbat thing was an inside joke going around this NG, and I wasn't in on it. Never even considered the possibility it was a real plane...shows how much I know.

while the walrus does not conjure up images of blazing guns and screaming dogfights, for some reason i really like them. there is something about that pug little krate that appeals to me. i guess i have a fantasy about flying one around the world. or just achoring it and living in it.

Re fruitbat- take a look at some of the between-the-wars British stuff in the Putnams series- lots of really inappropriate names from Avro, Fairey, Blackburn, etc. The Avro Bison is one plane I always like to dig out a picture of when I'm having a particularly depressing day. Hysterical laughter always brightens up my outlook.

Short delurk here: Ever been around a real buffalo? Unlike a cow or a horse when a buffalo gets moving nothing will stop it. Not a fence, steel yard pens, a barn or anything else. Get a heard of them going and you will wet your pants if you are in their way. Knew a rancher that made the mistake of purchasing a few because he thought they would be as easy to handle, just a small heard of bigger cows. He had them less than a year before the damage they caused tallied up to a whopper of a bill including a barn, miles of fence and a truck that got in their way. It does not include a few medical bills for him and hands. Buffalo may be big, dumb and shaggy but get them running and nothing will stand in their way. It is just a shame that the plane did not have the durability and unstoppable force of the beasts it was named after.

Read also that when they were shot by the Indians and cowboys, they tended not to run away but hung around the fallen buffalo. Easy targets apparently.

And then there is the Avro "Ape"! I still can't believe that came from the same company that created the Vulcan.

Dude! They ain't exactly little airplanes either. Either one is larger than a Walrus and about as long as the SM-79.

Disregarding the vacs already available from Combat or ID (P-39 & F-106, maybe the F-102), I'd like to see a 1/32 Val & Kate, T-28A-D, SNJ/AT-6, T-33, Tempest, Sea Fury, R-4, A-26, A-1H & E, T-37, just to name a few. Oh, yeah, I don't need to forget a 1/32 B-36 & B-52! ;)

No big deal, Lou Pruneau scratchbuilt a 1/32 B-52D diorama and it only took about one half sheet of plywood for the base :-)

Also the Cape Buffalo from South Africa. I would imagine the Brits would know about them. Considered one of the "Big 5" African game animals. Very tough and very dangerous. More than a few hunters have gotten stomped for not respecting the beasts.
