Scale Ref­er­ence Books

Model Airplane News - - GALLERY -

The sub­ject I chose to model is Maj. Robert Pe­tit’s Mrs. Vir­ginia air­craft, which served with the 1st Air Com­mando Group in Burma dur­ing World War II. I would con­sider the cock­pit fea­tured in this ar­ti­cle to be sport scale: fin­ished some­where be­tween the bare min­i­mum and mu­seum qual­ity.

Above: Here is a de­tailed photo show­ing the nose art of the full-size air­craft and its pi­lot. Be­low: There are sev­eral scale doc­u­men­ta­tion books avail­able on­line and in hobby shops.
