A couple of Amodel Beechcraft 1900s


Recommended Posts

Fairly easy builds (for Amodel kits) they seem to represent the lines of the 1900C & 1900D OK & make interesting comparisons. Both are being built as commissions :)

Very cool! I've only flown the Beech 99 and the KingAir 350, but those i know who flew the 1900 says it handles better.

A lovely couple of models! Just wondering how did the kits go together as I have an their Jetstream 31 in the stash at the moment?

Very good models. I've started my B1900C and I exactly know how much work you put into those models.  👏

I should hope that all those tacked on looking fins here, there & everywhere else had a positive effect, they sure did nothing for their looks :( , although the job @follasha has done on these enhances them more than they deserve I reckon. Nicely pair there harry. :)

Thanks all, talking to the ex Air New Zealand pilot who flew the D model, he reckons it’s the best (most stable) IFR platform he’s ever flown. He also says the Air NZ aircraft never had autopilots, they always manually flew them. So all those bits (that made a stretched and heightened  kingair fuselage flyable) must work 😉

 

the kit is typically Amodel, it’s nice but bits frustratingly have injection gates in the wrong place (or too large gates for small pieces) and parts fit regularly needing adjustment…otherwise it was a good build, it has a small P.E. Fret for vents/ducts but nothing overwhelming. Nice engraved panel detail and fairly good transparencies
