    RE: 1:3.7 Pilatus PC21 turboprop build

    It's been a long time in the making ( We had a big issue with the clear coat used so the model had to be stripped and re glossed ) But the PC21 finally took to the skies yesterday.
    Wow! What a machine.. Its a allot bigger than I remember it, as well as allot more detailed and impressive in the flesh. Marc has done his usual impeccable job on the build with all systems working perfectly pre flight. An issue with the Easy air set up caused some dram on landing, but nothing other than a broken prop ( Which needed to be replaced as it was under pitched).
    Some photos.

    Not on that prop ( Too little pitch) But 14" props on order so hopefully that will do the trick. ( Although it did sound superb on this prop.. supersonic even on a up line)

    Cleaned up and coming for a fly-by. I need a sound attachment to really bring this photo to life.

    Looks fantastic, and I bet the sound is awesome.
    Out of the various kits I have made in the last few years this one is really out there, the whole thing is very satisfying to build, yes there were a few mods to get closer to scale, the landing gear being the main one, but I think this is now offered in the standard kit so one less job to do now.
    Hope to see this fly in the flesh soon, maybe even at Jetpower

    Hi Marc and ali Doing a Comp-arf Tucano and was wondering were you got your pilots from. They look great and would work great for me in the tucano. Great looking bird and is there any video of it flying

    Wonderful plane! Congrats! Been toying with the idea of doing one but I do not know if they are still available as a kit. If not I may go my go my own way

    Wonderful!

    RE: 1:3.7 Pilatus PC21 turboprop build

    Lovely garage, but the wrong car to have with such a low and well decorated celling [:@] Oh.. and the model is rather nice as well. This is one of those that I would like to re visit one day but do it simple and lighter the next time.

    no, they are long gone. The good news is that we might see a new PC-21 coming from a new supplier sometime in 2014. Which is great as this is a model that I would really like to do again.

    Yes, the PC-21! After Axalp, I really would like to have that model with a turboprop up front. Such a beautiful plane! And the pilot who flew it knew his stuff
    My other choice is a CARF Tucano, but it can't beat the looks of the PC-21, IMO.

    I also heard a certain German turbine mfr is currently testing a 200n (turbine size) turboprop unit. Not sure what airframe it's targeted at but it's good to see the Turboprop market growing.

    Skymaster, can you please post some updates? Last one I saw was on the Marchetti thread, I think.
