Beautiful Aeronca 11AC Chief in quarter Scale


This is the best model I've seen of the 11 series Aeronca... benefits from those long Norske winters up north. Very scale. The wheel pants aren't the old style,but other than that, no obvious issues.

Thank you for the kind words about my Aeronca and an interesting point about the wheel pants.
It's true that the Wag-Aero wheel pants are old, but my wheel pants are actually older. They are made by the original Aeronca factory.
They are very rare today and you can't find them on many Aeroncas anymore.

Best regards,
Sturla Snorrason.

Would you mind if I put this photo on RCScalebuilder? I'll re-direct inquiries to RCGroups. It is such a lovely 'build' and I can't believe you aren't getting more 'hits' than this. Of course, I'm biased! I really like Aeroncas- especially the 7AC.

ARUP, I don't mind if you put any photo from my Flickr page however the inquiries should rather be sent to sturlasnorrason@gmail.com because I am not active member on any forums or simply link http://www.flickr.com/photos/aeronca/

I can't promise to answer any inquiries posted on rcgroups or rcscalebuilder, but I can try. I'm glad more people like this work, thank you.

Best regards,
Sturla Snorrason.

Why has the Aeronca Chief two different types of the original metal wheel pants?
Did the '47 model come with more streamlined ?

Seeing that Aeronca "in the corn" made me miss mine.

Really beautiful. Did you notice the power? Saito 80. Almost everyone would tell you it wasn't enough power, but I bet it flies beautifully and very scale like with it.

Sturla,

If I may ask being very curious.
What is the car in the backgound?

It looks very much like the 1957 Buick Century I had from 1957 to 1969.

Thanks for any reply.

Some one took the 'scale bull' by the horns on that one !

It stands the test of comparison against the full scale one very well.

It's funny -the repost- the day I start a scale project of my own here.

It's an inspiration to see a model that well done, and makes me want to do better.

Kudos to the builder.

Yes, that is a stunning example of craftsmanship of a beautiful, rarely modeled, fairly common subject. Not as common as a P-51 or a Cub but there are plenty of these full scale birds flying that just beggar to be modeled!
