A new project for the coming building season is a vintage Midwest Products AT-6 Texan kit. Though no longer available, kits are available online and at swap meets of your are lucky.

Exceptional Aeronca Chief

Exceptional Aeronca Chief

This beautifully detailed 1/4-scale Aeronca Chief is the handiwork of Icelandic modeler Sturla Snorrason. A completely scratch-built project, the model features traditional wood construction. Sturla notes, “A lot of time went into the drawings along with study of my full size airplane.” A lot of time also went into the detailing, including the true to scale cockpit! […]

Install a Scale WW1 Engine

When it comes to really looking scale, it’s in the details that we make the most progress in giving our model’s that “used” look. For my 1/3-scale Fokker Triplane, I wanted to bring a better scale look to the front end so I  installed a resin cast Oberusel rotary engine available from Nick Ziroli Plans. […]
Resin Casting Scale Parts

This is easily dealt with by making a master part and then reproducing it with a mold and resin casting liquid. Resin casting is considered an advanced technique, […]

Desktop CNC — DIY System for RC Modelers

Recently, I began assembling a kit for an amazing piece of equipment that any RC modeler would welcome into their workshop. Available in kit form (and factory assembled), the new Stepcraft-2 420 is a desktop CNC system that comes with a 20×12 inch work space. What really makes this kit great is that it comes […]
Making RC Brass Fittings — Saving Time and Effort

Making RC Brass Fittings — Saving Time and Effort

Bracketry is an old term referring to making small brass brackets for scale RC model airplanes. Mostly used for attachment points where you need a solid hard-point for the attachment of wing struts and rigging wires for biplanes and other wire braced airplanes. For the longest time, this was all done by hand, using fine-toothed […]

In a recent issue of MAN, long time contributor and Scale expert Martin Irvine showed us how he paints scale markings using vinyl painting masks (December 2020 issue), but he hasn’t stopped working on his 1/3 scale Thomas Morse S4B “Tommy”.
