    Ae. 24 Calquín- Argentinian "Mosquito"

    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!
