  3. Cessna L-19/O-1 Bird Dog "Asian Service" 1:32 Roden The Cessna Bird Dog was a military version of the Cessna 170, called the Model 305A by them. It was developed to a US Army requirement for a two seat observation and liaison aircraft. The design featured a single engine high wing monoplane with a tail wheel configuration. This was the first all metal fixed wing aircraft ordered by the US Army after aviation was split on the formation of the Air Force in 1947. As well as the US Army the aircraft would be operated by the US Marine Corps, and the US Air Force famously in the Forward Air Control role in Vietnam. US Forces would lose 469 aircraft in the conflict in total. The aircraft would also serve in many other militaries around the world including Australia, Canada, Japan, Spain, and South Vietnam to name a few. Over 3000 were built and there are still some 300 on the US civil register today. The Kit The kit arrives on 7 sprues of plastic, a clear spure, a sheets of decals, and 3 lengths of wire for the aerials (not shown). The parts rattle around in a large box, and as the clear sprue was not individually bagged one part was off the sprue and others have been marked. The parts generally are well moulded, and the surface detail is very good, especially on the control surfaces. However there is some flash evident on the clear parts. This contains the same plastic as the initial USAF boxing so a USAF / US Army aircraft can be made if the modeller sources alternative decals. Construction starts with the engine which looks to be a detailed one. The main undercarriage units are then made up. Pilots seat is made up along with its bracing struts. and the rear seat is also built up at this time. The completed engine is mounted to the engine frame and then to the firewall. To the other side of the firewall the instrument panel is added. Care will need to be taken with the engine and mounts as the tolerances with Roden kits can be tight and if not assembled correctly then they maybe be a fit issue with the cowling. The completed seat can then be attached to the cockpit floor along with other flight controls. The rear seat should probably be put in at this time though is gone AWOL in the instructions! Next up the instructions have you build the tailplanes. These have antennas on the front held on by a front cap. Even though these are wire they are probably best left unto the end of the build. The final parts of the exhausts are now built up and attached to the engine. The clear parts and doors now need to be placed into the fuselage halves along with the tail wheel. The tailplanes and landing gear are then attached to the fuselage halves. The fuselage can the be joined together placing the cockpit in and the engine. The move-able tail elevators are also added now. We then move to the main wing. The top side is one part with left and right lowers. The observation windows need to be placed into the wing at this stage. Flaps & ailerons are separate but only shown in the neural positions. The main wing is then added to the fuselage and the bracing struts are added. The engine front and cowlings can then be added. The model is finished with the main top whip antenna and a couple of blade antennas. Decals Markings are provided for 3 aircraft, they are printed in house and look to have no issues on the sheet. Japanese Self Defence Air Force, JG-1043, unknown base, 1950s South Vietnamese Air Force, April 1975, flown by MAJ Boung. Royal Thai Navy, s/n 22860 (51-16973), No 1302, 103 Sqn, RTNB U-Tapao, ca. 1982 Conclusion This looks to be a good kit in the box, however care will be needed as Roden kits do need it when putting them together. Even in 1.32 this is not a massive model and should build up to look good. Highly recomended for a Big Bird Dog. Review sample courtesy of

  6. Exactly one year after my last model, Cessna O-2A Oscar Deuce in 1:48 scale, I’m here again with its older cousin Cessna O-1E Bird Dog in the same scale. Coming from Hasegawa (ModelUsa), it requested a lot of improvements summarized as follow: • Eduard PE set for O-1 (just partly usable); • True Details resin set for O-1 (just partly usable); • Old Airwaves white metal and Plus Model resin figures; • AOA + AeroMaster decals; • Reheat & Eduard PE, copper, brass & styrene for various details; • Rivets & panels remade from ‘positive’ to ‘negative’. Approximately 320 hours of work, from June 2017 to April 2018. Picture of real aircraft taken in Lai Khe (Vietnam) 1966 and found on-line. WiP is here: Cheers, Alex Rome (Italy)
  7. Hi all. Anybody aware if a Cessna 182T kit exists? Thanks. Robin
  8. I think something's adrift before we even start... Here is my first, and if all goes to plan only entry to this GB. Come what may I intend to have a Cessna floatplane by the end of it and this is plan A, there's also plan B and if all else fails a scramble to get Plan C to the jetty come early January Now, the eagle eyed amongst you (everyone except me in other words) will see a fundamental flaw - it'll never fly float, but... Hang on lads, I've got a great idea I'll copy the original and convert it to a floatplane. For those you want to make an original wipaire.com (no commission in it for me) make the original floats. According to Scalemates, my boxing dates to 1970, but the moulds go back to 1957 and it shows with amazing rivets, panel lines and a hinged doors. It (re)occurs to me That Monogram's boxing only describes it as a 'scale model', but Scalemates is bold enough to say it is 1:41 and I don't know why such a useful scale didn't go on to be a commercial standard. But Scalemates are right and measuring it out it is as good as 1:41 as I can measure to all good. Oh except that scaling the 3 view drawing from Joe Christy's Complete Guide to Single-Engine Cessnas you end up with a gruesome recurring decimal which the copier can't cope with. Purists look away now, sorry that should always be fist with any of my builds. Still it's not far out, except.. Honeybun, we've all got our faults... Some lines aren't angled enough Oh and the dorsal needs some bulking out to cope with those tricky crosswinds on the lakes And yet some places are far too curvey Good Lord, just seen the camera shake on this, but concentrate on the wingtip like I did and I'll be back after I've taken my meds.

  11. Hi all, following my previous articles about Vietnam era helicopters, this is time for a fixed-wing! In late ‘60s USAF introduced twin-powered Cessna O-2A to replace single engine Cessna O-1 (my next project). Testors/Italeri kit is acceptable but almost basic. It needed a lot of improvements that they absorbed me for 6 months and 293 hours of real work. Cockpit with avionics rack and rear junction box is fully self-made (... except for cloches). Continental IO-360 engine is coming by 2 sets of edited Lycoming taken from old Esci Cessna 172 kits to set up a 6 pistons propeller. Firewall bulkhead and front gear bay and plates are made by styrene. Rivets and panels were rescribed for the whole aircraft. Pilot is freely inspired by actor Danny Glover who played the role of Capt. Clark ‘Bird Dog’ in BAT21 movie. The real aircraft is now preserved at National Museum of USAF, Wright Field, Dayton, Ohio. WiP is here below.... Cheers, Alessandro Rome, Italy
  12. Hi there, Alex here! I love to share with you my WIP of Cessna O-2A "Oscar Deuce" by Testors in 1/48. Started on October 15th 2016, I supposed to get a simple project after a well elaborated Hughes OH-6A earlier, but it wasn't! It's still taking a lot of time indeed! I collected a lot of pics and read some theads here and there before starting. During first check, the kit was quite attractive but basic. Some aftermarket items were a must. First of all about decals. The unusual "don't shoot" livery by Draw Decals was an exciting option at first, but after a long search on the web, I was quite sure it was a "fancy" livery, not on real life during Vietnam war. A second and good choice was given by Caracal decals by the sheet dedicated to O-2s. Above a picture of starting point..... Second step: opening door & baggage door... Some cockpit glasses were closed.... End part 1 Alex
  13. Hi fellow modellers! Iwould like to introduce you my recently completed Cessna A-37B Dragonfly. This is a simple and straightforward kit to build. It has some fitting problems, but that´s fine. I added some Eduard PE to add a nice touch on the details. The only problem with this kit are the decals.... the worst i have ever used. i tried to improve them by painting over the silvering they left. I hope you like it and every comment is welcomed! Best regards form Uruguay. Ignacio

  20. Merry Christmas, everyone! I was just looking around the web for possible candidates to fill in the GA parking stands on my prospective airfield apron. The A320s and 737s were catered for, but what about some Cessna & Co. in 1/144?... I came across a couple of online shops offering 3D-printing services which already have a good portion of aircraft, vehicles and airfield equipment in their portfolio: http://www.shapeways.com/search?q=1%2F144&s=0#more-products There are many items ranging from helicopters to WWI fighters, from Etendards to AMXs, from Tucanos to Lynxes, from firetrucks to access steps/ ladders and dinosaurs (it takes a bit to go through the couple of thousands of lines) and I am not commenting on the prices, but should you "require" a certain subject - like me with the Citation Excel and, say, some Skyhawk - then it might be worth a look. *** The other shop is click2detail: https://www.click2detail.com/store/c27/1%3A144.html Here, the product range might be a bit smaller in 1/144, but very much worth a look given the aircraft subjects aaaaaaaaand ... ...the 1/72 Global Express and 1/72 Sentinel R.1 [incl. markings by DRAW Decal] kits Apologies if this has been posted before. I did a quick search upfront but found nothing
