Continuing with the Asian Spirit airliner theme I announced on Bruno Vanhecke's long-running thread, here are more recolors of Tozawa Hiroshi's uncolored YS-11.

It's not purely Hiroshi's design as I blended in the better-shaped nose and cockpit of the TSMC YS-11 from Mic-chan then added a few more panel lines to very plain wings and tail, but it's not been test built so builder beware. The simple optional landing gear included was based on Mic-chan's model, but I only have a vague idea how they would attach to Hiroshi's (gearless) model.

I didn't realize their 7+ aircraft came in many distinct schemes shown by online photos, but the YS-11 from Aboitiz Air Cargo is a bonus as it had very plain markings. Find these in my Asian Spirit airliners folder in our Downloads. Keep watching this space!

Just heard back from Aaron Murphy, he's graciously granted permission to upload my recolors of his free Cessna 337 Skymaster (designed in honor of Chip Fyn) into 3 versions from the Philippines, Canada and Iceland.

As usual, this will be available pending moderator approval.

Go ahead and offer it up at Papermodelers.com. I think it'll serve Chip's memory better there than on my site. Make sure you put a note somewhere that you have my permission to put it there, or the moderators won't let it through.

Today is Philippine Independence Day!

To celebrate I would like to suggest a scavenger hunt among my various recolors. The count exceeded 300 recolors after the last upload: there are new ones I haven't announced, many I have refreshed and corrected, and some older ones that deserve another look.

I haven't created any new folders, so these are all related to existing recolors. Since I update the descriptions every time I add or correct recolors, start there. Enjoy!

In the meantime, my cunning plan for a couple of projects seem to be working.

Now that I've gotten the go-ahead from DGA's Jim Gausman, I can reveal one of my current projects is a DHC-2 Beaver to Stinson SR-3 kitbash. Can't seem to find good 3-views of the SR-3 online other than the less than 100% accurate balsa model plans, and had to use plastic model illustrations for the 27ft long SR-8/9. Planning to use the Santa TDV main cabin, cowl and engine, spinner and 2-blade prop, landing struts and fairings as traced outlines only (no interior details). Again, the brotherhood (sisterhood) of paper modelers is something to appreciate!

The replacement big parts are done, in INAEC (2nd oldest Philippine airline) green with white trim - when complete I will definitely need a test builder especially for the windscreen greenhouse I copied from a balsa model plan. Already have an idea for the second color scheme, stay tuned.

I've just come up for air after jumping off the deep end, even a major kitbash can get tough. Kudos to all designers, amateur or professional!

Anyway, I finally have the first draft of the Stinson SR-3 (straight-wing) Reliant derived from the DGA DHC-2. I'm now inviting test builders to PM me their email addresses so I can email the alpha model, hopefully there's at least 1 volunteer.

Of most concern is the fit between the greenhouse windscreen, fuselage and cowl, I'm sure there's lots of adjustment needed. There's likely alignment issues as well, and I haven't chosen a method to support the wing-fuselage attachment. Small rolled parts like the prop shaft and exhaust pipes aren't included just yet, I figure those are easy enough to make. I took the coward's way out and opted for multi-layer sandwich wheels and wheel pants.

On the plus side this is going to be a very rare and unusual subject, a 1930s Philippine SR-3 flown by INAEC in green with white trim. Monochrome photos are rare and color nonexistent, so markings are based on factory standard schemes and personal accounts.

I'm looking forward to seeing this built, then uploading the final release!
