Looks like ICM will be issuing a Beechcraft C18S (Model 18) in 1/48. Don't know much about it, but I did see it on their site.

I love this. I'm such a sucker for a twin-tail.

I guess it's not really surprising since they already offer this aircraft boxed as the JRB-4, AT-7C/SNB-2C Navigator, C-45F/UC/UC-45F, and the Expeditor II.

Don't forget that Belcher Bits offers a conversion for Postwar Bugsmashers with the larger engine nacelles and extended wing roots. This will greatly expand your marking possibilities.

Now all we need is someone to offer a float conversion kit and those funky square wingtips.
