My modeling foray into more contemporary subjects is causing some brow raising!

I find it delightful, personally.  I think you previously "broke the mold" with the Shorts Skyvan.  I love your techniques for assessing the size of internal bulkheads on the landing gear bays.  Expecting the usual outstanding results--but no pressure.

You are very kind, as the models are more the product of enthusiasm than skill.

 

I have crossed the red thin line many times! Besides a few civil racers converted from ex WW2 fighters:

Look at the de-FormaPlane fuselage. I have not seen that shape of door in any of the photos or plans I have of the Cessna. The deeply engraved fuselage stringers are supposed to be above the surface, and those panel lines would make Matchbox very jealous! :

Back to the KP kit, working on the interior and engines:

Definitely better than what are in the kit; I gotta get me some of them. I checked out the Khee-Kha website but don't see any propellers listed. Did they come as part of a package?

 

Also, I fail to understand how an 80-year old airplane can be called "more contemporary"? :wonder:  Maybe "less ancient" would be better?

Hi Bill

May be you could write to Lars at Khee-Kha and offer to purchase separately a few (to make postage worth it). His props (several types) come with his engines, which are very good too, and I bought a number of them from him.

And hey! I am so old that my friends call me Pre-Cambrian, but I like to be thought of as "contemporary" 😉

I believe people tend to think that given the span -and most of all the quick evolution of aviation- anything after WW2 is "modern", if not really  contemporary -according to the definition of the word. .

Thanks! I'm sure I could use some engines for my spares box as well, so I'll ask Lars if he could put together a variety pack for me.

He broke the forum rules because of the political overtones in many of his posts,

That wasn't why he was suspended.  He was suspended for his attitude when asked to stop.  He's also requested to leave the forum, so I'll lock this one down. :shrug:
