This is one of my favorite planes, I dont know why
I just like it. I have always wanted to do this project
and have finally gotten around to starting it.

So far I have found some very nice detailed three views
and have got the fuselage shaped out.

Nice Wingman,

Let me know if you need any reference shots. Big fan of the 140 too.

First plane I flew in real life by myself,(Well with a piolot next to me) San Carlos Airport to Half Moon bay Airport and back!

One of the best things I have ever done!

P.S. He never touched the controls.

Fun but a bit scary when I hit the prop wash from the twin in front of me.

Great addition to the sim!

Look up the 747 club out of San Fran, It was fun.......

A great little airplane, learned to fly on 140s and 150s and have wonderful memories, especially after I had soloed. Buzzing those tomato fields was GREAT!!!
Heres a few detail shots if you can use them.

A few more.... I especially remember getting ROYALLY reamed out when the instructor made me CLEAN the tomato skins off the plane, seems I was flying alot closer to the pickers than I thought and THEY WERE NOT HAPPY and were trying to "shoot" me down. Never flew that close again, took me 3 hours to clean the plane up.

Finally got some more time to work on this. Wings added, and windshield cut out. Not really sure how I'm going to get the windshield to mold with the wing yet.
