Default Cessna 182T

Does anyone on this planet know where a guy can find three views of the newer Cessna182T vintage 2002 to current. I've emailed Cessna with no luck and Bob Banka does'nt seem to know what it looks like. Even a wild goose chase would be better than what I have been able to accomplish to this point. If you want to get a better idea of what I am looking for you can go to www.cessna.com click on the single engine aircraft then clik on turbo skylane. Thanks Randy

Besides the cowl, how is this different than any other skylane?

The cowl is longer by quite a bit, the landing light is in the leading edge of the wing, there are two small horizontal fins that are on the sides of the vertical stab, the landing gear is more of an airfoil shape and the wheel pants are quite a bit different. I would like to take this to the scale masters qualifier in CO. this coming June and need three views to satisfy the judges. Any ideas would be greatly apperciated. Thanks, Randy

The latest issue of AOPA, has beautiful pictures of the 2004 Cessna 182T. I'm using it to modify the cowling and paint scheme on my Hangar 9 182.

Try www.aopa.org

Hi Randy, Maybe we ought to petition Top Flite to update their 182 Skylane or at least provide some updated cowls and wheel pants. Is there a market here? Anyway below are at least some profile views of the 2004. Here is the link for these images:
http://www.stetsonaviation.com/Skylane_04_Color.pdf

Also you can search www.airliners.net for 182T's and call up a bunch of them......some of the overhead shots can almost give you one of the 3-views. I have collected some frontal shots that could double for the front view. But they aren't the true drawings that you might need for a tight-jawed scale contest.

The newer wheel pant is quite different, so I suppose a person would need to learn to set up their own fiberglass units.

[8D]Thanks Gary, I have found that the wheel pants for a Sig Something Extra are very close. If you take some micro balloons and epoxy and extend the rear of the pants, then sand to shape, they are almost perfect. As far as the cowl is concered I have made a mold for the cowl and a fiberglas rear window frame. If interested, contact
me. Also if you go to tuleriveraero there are some pictures of the paint scheme I am doing under current offerings. I contacted the owner and he was kind enough to send me several photos of the plane, but no three views. So thanks very much for the links. I really don't plan on winning, more of a trial to see what goes on there. Thanks again for the links, Randy

Why not attempt to make your own. It isn't difficult to do. If you can build this kit, you can certainly lay-up some wheel pants, and make a cowl for that matter. Simply sand a balsa block, or make ribs and keel filled with expanding foam, to the shape you're after. Then epoxy that and sand and spot putty to perfection. When finished, make two half fiberglass molds, then glass the insides of the molds, join the two halves and you're there.
To see how it's done, visit www.nextcraft.com
Mike James is the man at this stuff.

You might be waiting a few days (or longer) until Randy completes his Cessna and gets the contest over with before he responds. The contest is in early June; maybe this next week-end. Or he may post today! You can also just email him through RCU for possibly a faster contact.

Gary, What do you think? I never keep my eyes of this thread LOL. I sent Rod a PM. Wish I had a camera, got the windshield tinted and glued on yesterday, looks very cool. I also got the landing light in the wing to function finally. I told a friend of mine if it ever goes in I could eat a nice steak dinner by taking the wire to a recycling center. Finished up the cowl got the cowl flaps on it and have blown the last cote of primer. If the wind would quit around here I could get some paint on it. How is yours coming along.? Randy

Ya, I wish you had a camera, too!

You build these beautiful models and are unable to document your progress. The world wants to see!!!!

Get some pics, when you can. I'll wait impatiently until then.

Hi Randy, I should have known! Glad the tinting came out OK, I was worried that my advice wasn't complete enough. Yes, you have got to get a digi-cam! Well, I have a complete wing with flaps, so now I can start of finishing up the radio system and doing some final painting myself. Will keep in touch.

Gary, Tom and Don also helped. The magic is the temp of the water 150* is the number you want. Bring water to a boil add the dye, then put a thermometer in the water and wait untill it drops to 150 or a little less. Worked great. Randy

Would the OS .65 LA 1.7hp @16000rpm produce enough thrust for the TF C-182?

I used Sig something extra wheel pants and modified them. The cowl is made from scratch from a plug I made. More pictures can be seen here.

Hey Randy,

Great looking model!!! Keep up the good work and please post more photos.

I'm about to purchase this kit and want to do the 2004 or 2005 scheme. What are the chances of purchasing a cowl from you? Just let me know how much you want.

If you need, I have a bunch of dig. photos of a couple of 2004 C182s I would be happy to email or more likely send on a CD-ROM. They are not your scheme, and in fact are all Garmin 1000 instrument panels - for which I'm developing a stick-on graphic. Let me know if you're interested in that one.

Cheers,
Greg

Paul,

Actually, your 182 inspired me a lot, yours is the most scale C182 model I've ever seen[sm=thumbup.gif]
