I was going to say that but couldn’t be sure as was just looking on the phone while away from home and the resolution wasn’t great

So you don’t have a -200 boxing and can just switch the fuselages?

I didn't think there was a -200 boxing?

Well how's that? The weight of the World on my Shoulders and I'm still accidentally solving everyone else's "problems"!

I am actually stunned that you didn't know.

Not a subject I am that familiar with Rob, so I have learned something this year already!

Before I read replies to my dilemma, thanks to Euge I figured I had to add 11mm for and aft of the wing, so I started the chop

and getting it ready for extending

So if Scotty comes through with the offer of a -200 kit it will make this build a little easier. But what to do with this one? I may still stretch it and make another option on the Caracal decal sheet, perhaps a Thai Navy one.

Aw come on Ray! Why turn it into something that there is already a Kit of? How about a -300 Freighter in IPEC or Toll Colours servicing Regional Locations? You just know you want to Whiff It!

So about 22 mm fore and aft for a -300 (makes it easier to add Freight Doors!) but the Engines may need uprating (and maybe a big Tail Skid too!)?
