1/48 Piper Pawnee P-25a (pictures working now)
Posted by SteveFL on Monday, March 26, 2018 11:44 AM

After a year, I'm finally finished with my Pawnee.  It's a resin kit and the resin parts are made poorly.  I had to scratch build most of it and/or borrow some parts from by parts bin.  I'm not thrilled with the results, but satisfied as I now have a tow plane for some of my upcoming gliders! Anyway I hope you enjoy seeing something different, for a change. Thanks!

I didn't know Piper made that aircraft. Looks like you did a nice job with it.

You might notice that your Photobucket links are not working. Sorry to report that you will want to find a new photo host if you want to continue posting.

The one pic that showed looks like a nice build.

Greg, most of the Pawnee's were rigged out as ag sprayers.

Goldhammer, you just read my mind!!! I was just going to ask if this wasn't an ag plane, for real. I never made the connection about them being used for towing and spraying. Thx!

Steve, all your pics are showing up now. Like Goldhammer mentioned, I also thought you had a nice build based on just the one pic. Now being able to see them all, no doubt, you did a nice job. YesYes

Dunno if I'd be brave enough to try an all resin airplane kit. You da man.

Well done!  What, not familiar with a Pawnee?  The first version had a 150 hp Lycoming, then they had Lycoming O-540's derated to 235 HP.  We called the 150 HP one we had the Puny.

I remember the Pawnee.  Still see one or two around.

I'd like to see your model, but the photos still not showing for me.

I know!

Being a Piper fan, I'm more surprised than you at not being familiar with the Pawnee, John. Surprise Smile

John, I just caught that you used to call your 150 HP Pawnee "Puny". That's pretty funny.

In another thread guys are talking about dusters with PT-6's in them. A couple winters ago I was airport bumming at a local airport I'd never been to. They had 3 or 4 of those monsters torn down for off-season maintenence. I had no idea of the size or power of modern day dusters. I was overwhelmed by them.
