A little less than a year ago I built Nichimo’s 1/20 Cessna Skyhawk. A modeling friend saw the finished kit and asked me to build the one which had been in his stash for several years. completed model here: http://www.coldbasementmodels.com/?page_id=2175 The problem was that his kit was missing its engine. (The original owner had mysteriously absconded with both the engine and nose gear strut.) But guess who had made rubber molds of that engine during construction of that first airplane? As it happened, I had enough spare resin castings to cobble together a Lycoming O-320 to replace the missing components. Not as as good as the original metal components, but more than adequate. Patching holes in the floor plate. The original model dates to the early 1980’s and has a lot of weird “features”. We’ll be going with the dark blue interior on this one.
Hello! I am looking for aircraft wheels suitable for WWI airplanes and for the interwar stuff. Both civilian and military. I know there is a MasterCaster(?) set for the Nieuport 17 with a cowl and a pair of wheels. Are there any other sets out there? BTW, does anybody know what is the diameter of the aforementioned Nieuport 17 wheels? Regards - dutik
