Who has built the Williams Pitcairn PCA-2?

Recommended Posts

I am finding some serious issues in mating the wing to the fuselage.

I have one, that I have ogled over a million time and have never been brave enough to start. Do you have a WIP thread, I'd love to watch that one. I also have a lot of photos of the one at The Henry Ford in Dearborn if you need some references.

I don't even know what a WIP thread is. I presume it stands for Work In Progress. I normally dry fit my kits especially if they are this old of a design before i start the actual build. This was the first thing I attempted to dry fit and it is BAD. There will be some putty involved. So much in fact that it will have to be Milliput because the drying kind would not be able to do the job. It might even have to be a plastic insert. I had to do something similar when I started my Testors S6B. I definitely want to do this PCA-2 though. This is what I want to do.

this gentlemen did a BEAUTIFUL job. If mine turns out half as good I will be happy. This aircraft actually saw combat.
