I have started mine that I purchased from Percision Cut Kits. I have found that it is missing parts and parts cut & marked wrong. I am having trouble getting cowl, windshield & wheel pants from Stan's Fibertech. I ordered them the first part of December and still have not received them. I have called & emailed and all I get is they are working on the order.

I am trying to find a cowl plug, mold or cowl. Criag at Fiberglass Specialties will produce them if I can get him one of these.

After a lot of time loss due to other projects I am back on the 172. Did not like the cowl from Fiber N More os I laid up a new block for the cowl to match the 1967 C172. Still need to glass it. Never did like the wing center section to fuselage structure so I beefed it up and now I need to check the wing to stab incendence.

Full Scale

I owned a 1967 C172H for 20 years. It was purchased from the Ohio Highway Patrol. I want this model to be a scale of this aircraft.
