Hi This is a little build from the ICM Cessna O2 Skymaster The build requier some attention but with the help of Mr Putty, you can build it. The only problem that I seen too late is the main gear bars too thin. It give a angle to the wheels. If you don't have the same problem, buy a metal gear legs or reinforce it Another view Cessna O2 Skymaster
Hi all For this new build, I choosed a ICM kit of a little plane : the Cessna O2 Skymaster. This plane was used by the US Air Force in Viet Nam War. It was popularised by the movie "BAT 21" with Gene Hackman and Dany Glover This twin engine plane has the particularity having a push pull configuration with a engine in the front and an engine in the rear The ICM kit has only 3 sprue : two in the grey plastic for the plane and one for the clear parts. I start the build with the cockpit/engine ICM give some instructions for the paint, but I preferred to follow the walk around given in this forum at this address : The engine : The engine is well detailled but we show nothing when it is in the fuselage. The cockpit The instrument pannel is very well engraved. I paint it in black with some button in red. ICM choose a instereting approach for the instruments panels. It looks like in one part when you see on the decals sheet but all instruments is an individual decal. It is easy to set it but it spent more time that a "one decal instruments" The radio rack. The radio rack is little complex. It need to be paint seperatly before to glue some box. Unless that, your airbrush has the risk to didn't paint all the box. Now I paint the interior ICM propose to paint all the interieur in "interior green" but the walkaround show two green tone. I follow the walkaround and paint some part in interior green and some part in a dark green (I have in my stock an Tamiya JN green and use it) An finaly a little pic with a global view of thep lane
