Guillows used to make a kit but I don't know if it's still available. could have been a Sundowner but basically the same.

Well, Guillows used to make a Piper Tomahawk, but never did a Beech Skipper. The Skipper looks a bit like a shorter winged Tomahawk froma distance, but is actually a completely different (though similarly configured) aircraft, both being low wing, side by side T-tailed trainers. The Sundowner is a completely different airplane.

Been reading the model mags for MANY years and do not recall a Skipper ever being done. You might have to get a three view from the aircraft manual and roll your own.

Beech Musketeer kit #308 and it is still available. I knew they made something like a sundowner cause I had one many years ago.
not much like a skipper tho. I confused a Skipper with a Sundowner
