In addition, as previously mentioned, a new CF-100 mold would need to be created, plus this monster, similar to the Avro Arrow, would require high materials cost, needing a huge chunk of diecast for each piece - the CF-100 was a large aircraft! When I approached William at HM about taking on a CF-100 project, he replied, giving the same reasons stated above. Seems our best bet for a possible "Canuck" release would remain with CWHM. At this point I'm happy CWHM will release a third Arrow and have planted the seed, more than once, for a CF-100 Canuck...
Belgium also used the Clunk
