Default Shorts Sky Van?

Has anyone ever tried to build the Shorts Sky Van?

I have a plan here for a Skyvan for a pair of 049's or, more sensibly these days,
a couple of small electrics.

A friend built a free flight version which flew very well, he even had the ramp drop
& a cargo drop with a parachute via a timer. This was electric powered.

But, for me, there would be a lot of twin engine models I'd build before a Skyvan! - John.

Looked up what a Shorts Skyvan was: ...Ugly, LOL, but I'll bet it really hauls!!!! :

I encounter the Short 330 and 360 in my work on the ramp at UPS.
Air Cargo Carriers is the operator. I thought they might be an interesting
modeling subject.

One of my club mates is building one from his own plans. Will be electric. He built a Dornier Sky Servant before that flew well, so I expect the Skyvan to fly well also.
