Hobbycraft CT-114 CAF Tutor

No. 2 Canadian Forces Flying Training School (CFFTS) in Moose Jaw , Saskatchewan , Aircraft s/n 114097, 1973.

The full build article for this model can be found in Issue 131 of the Tamiya Model Magazine International (TMMI) and IPMS Canada’s Random Thoughts Vol 24, No.6

This is a special model for me in that it was one of the more difficult to build model and yet it was the most satisfying build I have ever done.   I conquered it by a large amount of scratch building to transform a very mediocre model into something that I would take to a model show.  In cooperation with Uncle Rick, we used my scratch build parts as master to produced a set of aftermarket resin set which went on sale back in 2006 and reissued one last time in 2010 under the Uncle Bill’s Hobby Shop label.
