I used my holidays to go on with the PC-9. The rough part of the covering is done. Some details are still missing.
I am happy with the covering so far. I like covering my models, but it is also a critical part of the building process. You can spoil a project in no time if something goes wrong.
I am lucky, this time it was not the case  Smiley
About the color scheme.... well, with this contrast it will be easy to find it in the high grass Grin

Next is the propeller. The propeller I did was a three blade propeller. Stupid me... the PC-9 has a four blade propeller.... Therefore a new one has to be done.

Here are some pics.... Roman

By the way... the canopy fits perfectly. I never had such a nice canopy. Well done Avetek!

The last picture is a comparison with a pistachio Grin

Happy new year everyone!!!!!

ZK-AUD, any progress on covering the PC-9? I bought this kit (and the Avetek CT-4 just before they stopped making the Airsail kits) based on the great builds in the forum. It looks to be a far better kit than the original Airsail paperweights I built many years ago. I always thought Airsail was the southern hemisphere's answer to the Guillows flying paperweights.


All the best
