Looking for information

Recommended Posts

Hi...I'm a newbie to this site. I didn't know where to put this topic so I sent it to General Discussion. Forgive my naivety. I am looking for information on any aftermarket items for the MiniCraft Cessna 150 kit. Also any info on converting kit to the Cessna 152. thank you in advance and hope to be a contributing member in time.


Take care...stay safe

Very little difference between the two externally.  The 152 is 2" wider but that's about it and that doesn't strike me as worth trying to make apparent in 1/48.   https://cessna150152club.org/150-152-History


Panels today are a wide variety of classic steam gauges and modern electronics and that should be very easy to scratch build.  This guys new panel with the Garmin 275s makes for a very simple panel. https://youtu.be/B9tnYVfwO5Y


Where the creativity lives is the huge variety of paint schemes you can do.  General Aviation is underserved  in modeling so looking forward to seeing your results.  I have a Bonanza and a Cub on floats on the shelf to get to.

The tips are just plastic and from the factory they were straight on the 150 and 152 but the "hoerner" tips of various designs are a very common modification at about 1 AMU installed (1 AMU = $1,000 regular dollars. Just part of the lies we tell ourselves about how much general aviation costs!) 😀
