SCALE MODEL AIRCRAFT

Independent thinking and cultural diversity in scale modelling

CESSNA A185F (Converted from Monogram - 1/41) by Chris Parsons

These pictures involve the changes made to the (1956... old) Monogram 1/41 scale kit to try to update the model to a Cessna 185-F. The pictures should speak for the work done to the kit to make these changes, there were a lot of things done and may be fairly boring to go into in great detail. The kit shown here was given to me by a friend when the model was out of production (around 2002) and has been in progress as a project since then. I have since that time been able to pick up 5 more of them when they were re issued a couple of years ago.
