Unfamiliar with this stubby lil wonder. Please give me the 411 and tell me about it. Who made it, when did enter service, when retired, battle history... etc..

Thanks in advance,

Da Worfster

And of course we all know what we call a Boomerang that doesn't come back...

Seriously, I know there are some Australian modelers so I did post this for them. I'm such an airplane nut I didn't think of the double meaning.

Been thinking about buying this model since seeing it in a local model shop but due to its high level of detail and the needed skills to do it justice, I've been holding off... Still thinking about it but. Tis a beautiful model. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I think it is great the Boomerang finally got the maximum treatment, especially in 1:32 scale.

Watched one of these fly at Temora a couple of years ago. For those of you in NSW or nearby, it's seriously worth a visit on one of their flying days. They have a wonderful collection, including flyable Canberra, Gloster Meteor (!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif!!), Spitfires VIII and XVI, a Wirraway, and the list goes on. They usually have guest warbirds there too, such as Col Pay's P-40 and P-51.
