    Guys, does a card model of this trainer exist anywhere, or is anyone designing one?

    I kinda need one, preferrably in the Snowbirds Livery... :-D

    I agree. I like to see a model of the Tutor, especially with Snowbirds Livery.

    Good references are possible to find.

    I wish, i've been trying to build an RC/pusher prop version for a while out of foam. Would love to see one just for the patterns!

    Details of the Snowbird color scheme are on their official website here:

    Snowbirds, Aircraft

    I'm working on one, I want this to be my first "real aircraft" cardtoy; seen them perform twice at the past 2 airshows in Nova Scotia.

    Love those snowbirds!

    I've been fortunate enough to see them perform a number of times over the years. I'd love to have a model as well. Looking forward to seeing yours Jaybats.

    The Snowbirds aren't too shabby, but the RCAF's Golden Hawks, the Red Knight, and the RCN's Grey Ghosts were far superior imo.

    I've seen all the teams mentioned, although my memories of the RCN team is not too sharp as I was only about 5 or 6 at the time.

    Looks nice Sandu, you might want to do it in a few more sections for those of us with thumbfingers...

    It looks nice!!! BTW is this a downloadable kit from somewhere? Or are you designing one as well... :-D

    My own design, in the test build stage. Not being a good builder, i am just curious if it will look like a real snowbird or like something else.

    Rick, have mercy. I am new in this business.

    Just a suggestion on my part. I'm struggling with my first design as well, but having done a few Beta builds, I can say that trying to form a complete fuselage in one or two pieces is an absolute nightmare for me at least.

    Perhaps separate the forward fuselage just aft of the access hatch for the avionics in the nose section (just ahead of the S in Snowbirds as seen from the starboard side, and the mid section ahead of the roundel. This is of course up to you but I think that is how I would end up modifying it if I was doing a build.

    Good luck with your design, I'm looking forward to seeing it, as the Tutor was the first aircraft I worked on in the Canadian Airforce.

    Wow!!! You said your'e new in card model designing and you came up with something as nice as this... bounce7

    If your designs were as good as this one, who knows what you'll be making later... :-D
