Cessna Build?

Hello Jeremy, Welcome to Wattflyer!

There's nothing tricky or complicated about any of the Mountain Models kits and...

"C" Stands For....

Hi Bill,

Still A Way To Fix It?

Hello Joeinwellie,
Yes, that's exactly the way mine was assembled.
I aligned the motor using the plan side view to get the prop shaft in the same place as the cowl opening. Once the motor was...

180 To 170?

Hi Fred, the 170 is somewhat different from the 180, the most noticable feature is the shape of the tail surfaces, the 170 has the curved and rounded shape, the 180 is more of a straight taper. There...

Moving Pictures? That Will Never Catch On!

180's Still Flying, All Trimmed!

Well, I got a few more flights on the little 180 today, and it's quickly becoming my favorite "Sport" plane. No, it's not going to win any "LMR" contests and it's not very aerobatic, either. But it's...

Cessna covering?

Hi Andy, Thanks for the compliment, covering is one of my favorite "skills" in modeling, it's easy, pretty fast and when it's done, the plane is ready to fly!
