Kit Bashing with ARF Models - Bucker Jungmeister
[ATTACH=CONFIG]2027530[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]2025426[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=CONFIG]2029864[/ATTACH] I was recently looking at a set of Flyline Models Bucker Jungmann plans and wanted to build the same size of kit. Since these older kits are no longer available unless you find a kit, I went looking for ARF biplanes. I found a similar scale size Cermark Models Ultimate biplane and ordered one. I was really surprised at how close to the Bucker the shape of the wings were. The tail surfaces of course were not very close to shape, but I could modify them easily. Now the mods, I redid the tail surfaces and added wing tips to give a more scale appearance. I don't mind doing the extra work as I plan to use TF cub yellow covering and most of the Ultimate construction will not need to be modified. This is a different way to kit bash, but uses the same principal. I have finished removing original covering and finished with the wing tips and the progress is looking good. This will look great with cub yellow colors. I'm surprised that no model company has made a small built up Bucker park flyer ARF, I guess I get to break ground on this one. Here is finished model. I'll update as time permits.
