Prior To 1962 four thousand five hundred and ninety Cessna 182 Skylane aircraft were built by the Cessna Aircraft Company Wichita Kansas. Then came a new Model of the Skylane (the deluxe version of the 182) with a new fuselage. Glass all around giving 360° vision, flight-sweep tail, and a very attractive color scheme.
On my way to the bluff where I had been slope soaring gliders. I passed the Orange County airport and saw a then new 1962 model in blue and white.
One look, and I was convinced that there was an aircraft with lots of room in the newly designed fuselage. Room for almost any amount of radio gear!
Wheel pants (now called wheel speed fairings) added to the well proven single leaf main landing gear and nose wheel made this a very attractive airplane to duplicate.
Due to the fact that large scale control models always seem to look nice and impressive I chose the scale of 2 in = 1 ft.
In February 1962, Torbet Aircraft provided some full color brochures and a blue-and-white. Skylane for photographing. I went away with 24 detailed shots of this ship from all angles.
While in Japan my last time and in association with Masahiro Kato the design and construction of two prototypes was completed. Then test-flown using a new Orbit 10 superhet furnished by Bob Dunham.
Since that time I have received a number of requests for the plans to this ship, and decided to have them published by R/C Modeler.
Number of improvements have been made to this model since the original was test flown. Modifications include exact scale flying surfaces plus the addition of flaps, lights, and full sheeted wings to simu-late the metal covering.
Inasmuch as this scale model is not for the beginner, I will forego a step-by-step construction. Article but by fol-lowing the numbered sequence of the parts the average model builder should experience no difficulty in building this beautiful model.
