What plane is this?

Can anyone identify the plane that was used in the movie "The Constant Gardner"? The one I am talking about is the twin turboprob, twin tail STOL with the rear cargo ramp and UN markings toward the end of the movie. If so, do you know a good FS model?

It does look like the Buffalo. Thanks for the link, Greekman. I'll have to watch the movie again and compare. I love the way that plane landed in the movie.

The Buffalo looks right to me.... High wing, square x-section fusilage, and that high rear end where the ramp drops. Those airdrop humanitarian relief sequences in TCG were my favorite parts of the movie, and when I Googled the airplane, I came up with zip. I'm really glad you raised the subject, because I was dying to know, too.

I just wish there was a 2004 model. I can only find a 2002.
