I have modeled the Cessna UC 78 Bobcat with Blender (2.56) some time ago.
It's still a wip, very low poly and not textured yet and it should be
improved. You can find some screenshots here   . For the interest
of learning blender and in the hope to find a practical path in my learn
curve, i would like to integrate this in FGFS. Didn't found this aircraft
in the repo and somehow, i hope nobody is modeling and integrating this one
;) Or if so please give a sign asap and will try some other one.
