Seagull Models PC-6 Porter becomes AU-23 Peacemaker

Sep 14, 2011 1 Comment by

I recently mentioned that I had a Seagull Models PC-6 Turbo Porter in the paint shop with the plan of converting it to a Fairchild AU-23 Peacemaker. Well, it’s out of the shop and back in the air and looks like this! The gun blast/tracer path was done with PhotoShop. The conversion, beyond the paint work, consisted of adding flaps which enhance, even further, the slow flight abilities of the model. I will be presenting the complete article in a future MAN issue, but this should whet your appetitee to make a gentle flying, unique Warbird! Stay tuned!

    I have the PC6 on order and as and ex Air Comando (1960′s) I am interested in the AU23 conversion what did you use as documentation to build the side firing gatling gun?
