1/72 Matchbox Dornier 28 J

Silly Week 2016



After the war they put the new jet engine on nearly everything so to say.

I thought the Dornier was from the 1950ís, but it was from a decade later when they probably had realised that jet engines are not so efficient at the heights where the Dornier flies(or flew?)

The standard fixed landing gear of the Dornier doesnít fit with jet engines so I suggested an inward retractable landing gear.  My plastic-model-plane-drug-dealer doesn't have more Dorniers 28 (Matchbox 1:72)

Other possibilities are a Dornier 28 with turboprop engines (according to the internet 
realised in reality) and a Dornier 28 on floats (proposed but not realised) and the wings of an Otter also look usable.
