I have received the plastic model from Pavla Models in the Czech Republic.

The first thing I need to do is to verify that the 3-views I have are accurate, and that the plastic model I got is too.

Since the 3-views I have are less than stellar, I probably won’t be able to do any lofting of the fuselage formers based on them. Instead, I hope the plastic model corresponds well with the pictures of the actual aircraft, so I can take measurements off of that.

To see if the plastic model is to scale, I printed out the photo of the real aircraft, and placed the plastic parts on top of it.

It fits to a T (with the exception of the tail wheel). Very impressive work by the Czechs. It is quite clear that the plastic model is the way to go, compared to the 3-views. I’m one very happy camper.

    I have also purchased 2 of these kits fron Hannants in Great Britain. One kit to keep intact for reference and one to assemble. The details for the interior are very small for any fine detail work and I still believe pictures are worth more concerning actual detail.

    Hi Dennis,

    Unfortunately I do not have any photos of the cockpit interior. If I find any, I will pass them on.
