Roden it seems never sleeps. They have given us another scale wonder in plastic. In 1959 the Swiss firm Pilatus developed a simple multi-purpose aircraft, with the formal name of PC-6 Porter. The American aircraft manufacturer Fairchild purchased a license its production. It had the XM-197 gun minigun installed.
