test builders for recolors

Hello all,

Having enjoyed free papermodels from scissorsandplanes, racepaper, gerry1966, garypilsworth, cafe, airdave and others it's time for me to pay it forward (a little).

I've started a series of vintage (e.g. my childhood) aircraft from obscure, now defunct, Philippine airline companies and would like to have them test built before the general release to the forum since I don't have a working printer just now. I intend to release them in 1:200 scale, but the test builders will get them in the larger editing scale so the mis-alignments and other stuff to fix show up better.

These include the Air Manila Lockheed L188 (from scissorsandplanes) and Fokker F27 (from Gerry1966), and Filipinas Orient Airways YS11 (from Hiroshi Tozawa). I have permission for the first 2 but have been unable to find any means of emailing Tozawa-san.

Send me a private message with your email address and choices, and I'll send you the files as PDF attachments. One of them even has a bonus aircraft tug (not mine).

Enjoy!

New recolor available!

OK, at least 1 person has volunteered to test build so I know some people are reading this thread. Still don't have a working printer right now.

This update is a recolor of Chaiwat's 1:200 C-45 Expeditor as a 1941 Philippine Air Lines Beech Model 18 airliner. Red overall with with gold Beech speedbird stripes and white registration numbers. I erased the starboard door and added landing gear.

Chaiwat builds his models with transparent canopies so this model has a big hole in the cockpit. I found a flat wrap windscreen pattern from a balsa model plan and put 4 different windscreen sizes for the test builder to figure out which one (or none) fits best, add your own tabs.

Working scale was meant to be 1:100 but if the Powerpoint ruler is correct the wingspan is about 7.5" when it should be 5.72" (so about 1:76).

Any takers? Send a private message with your email address and I'll send you the PDF. Also working on a generic USAF C-45 in olive and gray.
