Default Any FAC diecast aircraft out here?

Looking for any 0-2 Skymaster or OV-10 Bronco diecast models, preferably in 1:72.

Is there such a beast?

Thanks

facs don't attract much attention (even if i can remember at least a good movie with a fac used by the main actor, do you remember Bat 21?), only the people with a real interest for military stuff care about them, hard for a manu earning money.

Hobbymaster has made a korean war FAC T-6: HA1506. It's a decent model, but quite hard to find now (but, with enough patience, it should come around on ebay).

The O-2 skymaster (cessna 337) has been made in some odd scales by second-tier manufacturers. due to the large number of users and liveries possible, it is not inconceivable that it will at some point be made in 1/72 by a tier 1 manufacturer. however, it's not at the top of anybody's list.

for ov-10 bronco, there are plastic kits out there by revell and hasegawa that build up quite nicely in 1/72. if you scan ebay, you'll probably find one. don't settle for a poor build - wait until you find a decent one. most of the ones that sell will have a vietnam or at least a USAF livery. its unlikely this will be made in diecast if only because any diecast will be an instant "tail sitter."

Not if the front is weighted & the tail booms & tailplane are plastic.

Btw, Gemini Aces were going to do a Cessna 0-2 at one stage.

You can always ask William or Noel for a FAC plane
