E-mail Print

This is a model of Boeing PT-17 Stearman, from WWII era. A biplane from 40s, it was used as a trainer plane for many US fighter pilot. Now the plane use for acrobatic shows, private owned or even for crop dusting. I always combine many my hobbies into one if possible. As you may have know on my Facebook I've been busy experimenting with my new hobby, scratch building an RC plane using foam. The design method for foam aircraft model is pretty similar to paper model template version, but it's already simplified even more. I re-use the 3D model for making paper model template. The scale is 1:40 the same scale as the existing Wilga model. The template use formers and inner glue tabs, so you need to provide 2 kind of paper. You will need cardboard for its formers/ frames and 100 gram paper for the skins.

AURI got them from The Kingdom of the Netherlands, but the irony they also used to fight off the Dutch from us in later confrontation in mid 1950s. The Mustang still used by the AURI for various military operation until they were grounded in early 1970s because of the aircraft are getting old and lack of spare parts support.

I am an aircraft lover since I was a kid, Wilga caught my eye when I visit Satria Mandala Museum. There is a Wilga or Gelatik in that museum as a static display, it can't fly anymore, the color is yellow. It was belong to TNI AU as a utility aircraft. I need a simple plane to make in to paper model, so I remember I did took some photos of Gelatik. I was going to use those photos as references but unfortunately some photos are out of focus. So I google it and decided to make a 35A version (PZL-104 35A) because it looks like more popular than the 2C version (Gelatik). The paper model shapes are quite simple, just 2 pages of patterns, but there are few of small parts. To fit its wing template in A4 paper so I make the scale of this model aircraft 1:40.
