Well here we go again, I have finished the Piper Pawnee and its time for the big one. I have mentioned this to all of you and now its time to get going.
I managed to find some drawings, I have all the plastic card I need, vac for machine and hopefully the skills needed to get this done, and its time to get started.
I will keep you posted on how I fare, comments are always welcome.

I have started with the construction, and I wanted to give you an idea of how I have progressed. Started with the fuselage ribbing and sides, cut out the doors and shaped the nose section out of balsa wood. Looking good so far. Going to start with the detailing of the interior and the vertical and horizontal stabilizers next.
I will keep you posted.

Marc, that is a lovely piece of work! Thanks for the interior photos, I have the Roden kit someplace, I want to do an Air America aircraft, from our less-than-stellar visit to SEA.
Thanks Bernard, I am busy with the interior detail now, busy with the seats, finished the rudder. I will keep you posted. Thanks for the comment.

Man, I admire you scratch builders! I don’t think I have the patience for that type of work – I want to see things take shape and get to the paint work much to quickly! (perhaps it has to do with the large stash calling out to me…). I really look forward to seeing this come together Marc, as I love the work you do.
Thanks Greg, always nice to hear from you, thanks for the comment mate,

Thanks David, everything is scratch built, I think I have given myself a headache with this one, its 410 mm long…………….its going to be big.
