    Looking for a Super CUB

    Hi all, A friend of mine is a Piper PA-18 Owner and is asking me to build his plane. here is the real one. The Revell kit of the standard landing gear version is not good. the float plane one seems good but i don't know if there are also the standard landing gears in the box as part not to be used... anybody knows if I have to buy both boxes and mix them? Thanks Luca

    I agree with you jack! I actually love tell those pilots what to do, doesn't matter how you do it, you just do what I say!

    Hi guys! I'd like to show you some of my latest photos taken 10 days ago from my plane. Yes i'm a general aviation pilot, my favourite hobby! with 2 collegues of mine(both pilots, we are all Air Traffic Controllers) we started the engines of our planes and we took some shoots while airborne on sunset. My plane is a Diamond DV-20 katana, my collegue's one is a 1948 Macchi MB-308 perfectly restored by himself last year. Here are the photos! enjoy!

    yeah i've already noticed that, I'm working on the paintjob now but some time ago i did a dryfit. I really don't knowif the plastic struts will sustain the weight of my model, I also have resin external tanks 40g each, the internal zatco's intake and all the aires stuff... i'll try to modify and verify palstic struts, but maybe i'll copy them in metal once modified.
