Also found out about these just now. I like the subjects by BSD, very unusual stuff as always.

Intriguing. I can understand the 350 KingAir getting attention as the type is used around the world (our Royal Flying Doctor Service uses four, and I got to look around inside one as a family friend services the type when they are operating out of Broken Hill), but the G8? Now that's one I would not have expected in the scale, much less so from a German kit manufacturer. For the record, the GippsAero GA8 Airvan 8 (as it is known now) is a little 8-seater built by a company in Morwell, a town in the Gippsland region of my home state, Victoria. Whilst they are obviously used here, most of those produced have winged their way over to the States, where they are used by the Civil Air Patrol. A few even operate with the California Highway Patrol (though none have been flown by Erik Estrada!).
