I guess it depends if you are going to do scale competition with it. You should chat with Mike Barbee, since he did the 90 or 100.

No It seems to shrink to much. I only use Evercoat it is expensive but works the best. I have it on giant twins I built 15 years ago and no signs of any shrinkage !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

king Air.
Trim tabs are absolutely not necessary unless you're entering in scale competition like the other gentleman said.

I have airplanes or should I say twin engine airplanes bigger than that and none of them have trim tabs. I would also like to get a set of plans like this other guy could you tell us who makes the plans or where to get the plans exactly thank you so much.

youd need to add about 60-80 of span to that model before you could use even the smallest of turboprops available.

no. its not.


the smallest Turboprop (Kingtech K45TP) will fly a 90-100 airplane with just ONE of them.

your talking about two. Youd need atleast a 1/4 scale airplane to make use of TWO turboprops.


my 1/4 scale beech Starship could use two Kingtech K45TPs, but in reality, it would be better with the K60TPs. Its over 100 pounds, 163 wingspan and 138 long and is Substantially larger in volume at the cabin and and nacelles than a kingair at 1/4 scale.


your kingair wont handle two turboprops.
