Ok... this is useful! As always... you're a resource unto yourself!

Have this kit in my stash too. Hopefully some day will do it in the colours of the aircraft I did my private pilot flight test.

Hi guys! Greg, Matthew, Gordon... I silently follow (all three of) you for several months (no, that's not stalking!), I really enjoy and appreciate your endeavors... - but here's a chance to come out and say hi... well, searching just now all Cessna-related things on Scalemates, I just stumbled upon a post by Gordon... about future releases by KP... including the Cessna 180/185 AND (more to the point) the 150/152! 🙂 Here's the Czech article Gordon initially posted, last November: http://www.modelarovo.cz/maly-nahled-pod-poklicku-cast-1/?fbclid=IwAR0vhkl_seCJZj4LXax0PCHc-SRQugSyefqetMzie8rW_3X6FJRIJ25VxgE - And the precise translated quote: "Finally, molds for the Cessna C-150/152 and Cessna C-180/185 models are being prepared after several years of delay." I understand Matthew is going after an early 150 - but, nonetheless, if a mainstream manufacturer like KP comes out with an 1/72 150/152... well... that will be good news (for me as well)! My respects to all - A.

First off, you don't need an invitation to jump right into the discussion Alex, but thanks for doing so. That link looks pretty interesting. I'll have to defer to Mathew as to whether or not that will help us in our plans for an early Cessna 150, but it looks promising. Thanks!

That will help enormously - would only have to change the back and tail which would be a lot easier on a plastic kit.

Bought the Hales boxing of the Eidai kit. The good news is most of the wing and part of the canopy can be used to make what I want. The bad news is only the wing and part of... &c

Going to have a break from keep starting projects as I have a lot of books to read and half started builds.

Good... wait for me to catch up and then I can follow the "model by numbers" method based on your hard work. 🙂
