    Ae. 24 Calquín- Argentinian "Mosquito"




    "A good fighter pilot, like a good boxer, should have a knockout punch..... You will find one attack you prefer to all others. Work on it till you can do it to perfection... then use it whenever possible."

    Nice to see something posted on this bird! I actually think it looks cooler then the mossie, but I heard that it wasn't nearly as good. Their one-off follow on to this kind of looked like a Hornet a little. They said it was a world-beaterbut I guess the jet age just came on too fast. I guess their aren't anymore around are there? How about in 1/72 scale?

    Thanks for finding it!

    EDIT: I have been informed by REDCOAT that the same "quote was first used by a test pilot for the British, Blackburn B-26 Botha ( a very unloved aircraft) in 1938" - Thanks amigo!
