Facebook Aquila UAV Papermodel

E-mail Print

To help bring Internet connectivity to more people, Facebook is designing solar-powered airplanes that will beam Internet signal to people in remote, underserved regions within a 60-mile diameter. Each aircraft is designed to be in the air for up to 90 days at a time. It first maiden flight was on 28th June 2016 for 96 minutes flight time and then the second flight was on May 22 2017. A few days after that, someone from Aquila's project contacted me to do commissioned on Facebook Aquila UAV papermodel. He said when it's done it will be shared for free to all of you. I haven't ask his permission to mention his name in this article, so I'll leave it that way for the moment. This model template design was based entirely on publicly available images on the Internet, it is not based on the actual technical drawing. So here it is the template of Facebook Aquila UAV 1/72 papermodel. The built model wingspan will be about 45 cm. I am not an aeronautic major, I'm just a RC plane modeller as a hobby, I wonder it's must be hard to make that long wing rigid. It is very long, it's a beautiful aircraft. I test build the paper model myself and when I see the result, I think it's quite good for who haven't build any paper craft for years. The assembly instructions are included on the template. Have a nice build :).

P-51D Mustang - Was That Too Fast

E-mail Print

Another recolor version, this time is P-51D Mustang. It's from Korean War era (1950-1953). P-51D Mustang was still use by US Air Force in the Korean war as a close air support, with bombs and rockets. This war-horse FF-943 "Was That Too Fast" was stationed at Chinhae Airfield from 1951, it was one of 18th Fighter Bomber Group. In 90s I remember playing a aircraft simulator PC game, titled "Chuck Yeager - Air Combat" and I was playing in the Korean theater using P-51D Mustang against Mig-15 jet fighter, then P-51D was replaced with F-86 Sabre in the next missions. I added additional patterns on the page 6, those are patterns for bombs and rockets.

Piper PA-47 PiperJet Papermodel

E-mail Print

Usually I build the RC plane first and then later I release the papermodel version of it, but often I became lazy and it never happened. So this time I made the paper version first. This model is a single engine very small corporate jet from Piper Aircraft Inc, a PiperJet. I found this plane very beautiful and I want to make an RC plane of it. I love their Cherokee, I already made an RC of it and it flew so good very easy to handle. Sadly this Piper PA-47 PiperJet never went into production, the project ended after they made a prototype and first flew on 2008. They even redesigned the PiperJet and then came PiperJet Altaire, but once again they cancel it due to economic conditions on 2011. I made this papermodel in 1/33 scale, the model will have 40 cm or 16 inches wingspan.
