Cessna 185 Skywagon from aero-naut

Details

Man-carrying airplanes have their very own charm when they are modeled after them. This is also the case with our replica of the Cessna 185, which has been given the nickname “Skywagon” because of its transport capacity for up to 6 people. The original made its maiden flight in 1960 and was built until 1981. A total of around 6,200 units of this type were delivered.

This model was constructed with a span of almost two meters on a scale of approx. 1: 5.5. The size was chosen deliberately in order to create manageable dimensions with a voluminous model at the same time. 

The model is built entirely in wood. All parts were precisely designed and laser cut for this. The fuselage consists mainly of solid plywood and is ideally suited for both combustion engines and electric drives. The wings are built from a sturdy plywood-balsa combination and fully planked, which gives the wings exceptional stability and torsional strength. 

Just like the original, the model has large landing flaps that can be folded down up to 90 ° using special hinges. This makes landing easy on smaller airfields. All rudder surfaces are optically enhanced by a stiffening that is true to the original. The window frames are installed separately, the doors to the cockpit are already indicated on the fuselage. For the expansion of the cockpit, components for an instrument panel are included, which give the model a realistic appearance. 

The chassis is made of GRP and is colored white with the kit. The matching pneumatic wheels and the steerable tail landing gear are also included. The kit includes a slipway and templates for assembling the wooden parts, with which the assembly will succeed even with less profound knowledge of timber construction. A detailed construction manual in 3D style shows every single construction stage and thus leads to quick construction success. The model kit contains: All wooden parts, precisely laser-cut, plug-in tubes and connectors, chassis made of GRP, pneumatic wheels, steerable tail wheel, cockpit extension kit, clear glass panes for the cockpit, small parts for linkages, all planking material, various strip material, construction aids and slipways, 3D construction instructions.
