1/32 scale Piper Pawnee Brave – Scratchbuilt
Well here comes 2017, and I have decided to do full on scratch building, there are no cool civil aircraft in 1/32 scale, so I decided to build my own. I have always wanted a Crop Duster and I came across a plan while I was in the Congo and started to mentally prepare myself for the task at hand when I got home.
I started out with a blank, flat piece of plastic card and started cutting and gluing, making molds and vac forming, and a lot of sanding. This is what I have from building over the last 2 weeks. Everything was scratch built, excluding the wheels that were salvaged from the spares box.
I return to the Congo tomorrow for 6 weeks, then I will finish it up when I get home.
Maybe I will try a 1/32 scale King Air next…
Hope you guys like it, and a Happy New Year to you all.
I am pretty happy with the way it came out so far.
