Troll through the aviation threads Kris. I'm sure you'll find some help and ideas there for your Cessna project. Also start your own build thread on this one and ask, ask, ask. People here love helping.

Maybe I am over complicating things, I want to have sealed bearings for the propellers so they last longer in the outside environment. Spray paint the model to protect it when finished. Any ideas from anyone would be great.
I am pretty new to this forum or any so not sure if this spot is the right one or if it needs to move to a different thread? Please point me in the right direction.

Nooby dooby doo!

Re-scaling isn't too hard. going from 1:55 to 1:20 you take the scale that you have and divide by the scale that you want:

55/20=2.75

so then you print at 275% to get the desired scale. Check the final print to verify. I have found that pdf files works better then some other file formats, but your mileage may vary.

BTW, welcome to the forums from just south of you!
