This is a Quarter Scale 108 Wingspan Cessna 195. Features corrugated real aluminum tail feathers, Rudder, Ailerons and Flaps. Fuselage from front of cowl to tail is 76. Fiberglass fuselage and cowl. One set up windshield and one new one included. The prototype was designed and built by Jack Dunkle. It flew on a Zenoah G62. An Evolution 80GT fits nicely in the cowl.
Wings are foam core with spars, and Aluminum tubes, sheeted and glassed. The tail feathers are totally completely finished with edges and rivets. The fuselage has all the accurate panel lines set in with Bondo since this fuselage is an overlap design with tons of rivets. Rivets were started on one panel. the rest is up to the builder and this is not an ARF. This is for a real scale builder. Gear is on and can be removed with wheel pants. There are machined retainers for the Wheel Pants and tires. You will need a tail wheel and the small tail wheel hatch is missing.
The President of the Cessna 195 organization said it is a scale outline, but I do not have any 3-views other than the original brochure from Cessna. Includes a lot of photos of the one I was modeling, Plus a Cessna 195 manual on a CD.
A good honeycomb cardboard crate made by a box house for this aircraft will cost approximately $200.00 plus shipping. I prefer that someone pick this one up. The cowl plug in the photos was used to make the cowl mold that since than has been lost. With some work, the plug can be used again for a cowl mold.
The inside diameter of the cowl is 9.5 inches. The baggage door is complete and works. The fuselage did not have a passenger door. I cut the door and scale hinged it. The door edges and sill need cleaned up to match the door edges.
This is an attention getter and I need to move it to finish another project. A good friend started this project and made the tooling for the corrugated aluminum. I worked on it for the last year, and there is more than enough to finish this aircraft and another one. The tooling for the aluminum corrugation is NOT included.
The wings are removable and the screws to lock the in place are in.
The firewall is removable and set up currently for a Zenoah G62.
