1/48 Beechcraft Baron Converted from Minicraft Bonanza


Recommended Posts

You're killing me Wal!! I cannot even get one finished!! I remember seeing these flying around Jandakot years and years ago. Always thought it was the PMG/Telecom plane because it had -what I thought at the time- phone on the tail :banghead: Good job. Thank God The Dockers don't have their own a/c otherwise you might feel compelled to do that too, and that would just be a ridiculous waste of time :lol:

Looks like she was worth the effort, and the integral windows look especially good on this one. Well done indeed sir!

Hello fellow glue sniffers, I hope you are all keeping well, recently I have been asked about this project and noted that the pictures are long gone because of my rejecting photobucket's changed payment terms quite some years ago, I have queries about this conversion in the past but I was unable to repost the pictures because they had been lost from my pcs and laptops over the years...until recently when they surfaced like the dead sea scrolls albeit hidden in an anonymous file in a backup drive rather than a clay pot.

Anyhow attached below is a link to a Flickr album dedicated to this conversion for your reference..cheers wally

That makes a change from camouflage! It looks very neat and tidy. Congratulations on finding the photos. I presume the actual model is lost to you?

Glad you re-posted via another photo host.

I don't think I was a regular visitor in 2012, so I missed the 'bucket pics.

Fantastic Baron, Mate!

Brilliant!  👏👏

I've searched - but can't find any commentary on how you did those windows.  Just a hint on Flickr (see shared image) that you might have 'poured' them?  Care to share the technique?

Thanks for the link Woz! I'd like to give that a try in one of my future projects. Certainly makes for a clean finish. A simply marvellous conversion!
