Minicraft Piper Cherokee 140
Plastic model kit.
Manufacturer: Minicraft Models
The Minicraft model consists of 37 nicely molded white and six clear styrene parts with just a small amount of flash. Panel
lines and rivets are probably overstated in terms of scale measurements, but should look all right on the finished product.
The kit comes with a stand that supports the finished model at its balance point. This stand comes with a connector that must
be installed in a hole in the bottom of the fuselage when joining the halves together. If you decide not to use the stand,
you will have to add quite a bit of weight to the nose of the model to get it to set properly on its tricycle gear.
The instruction sheet is clear and laid out well except that paint colors are referenced by letters that are not defined
anywhere in the kit. Fortunately, the Cherokee is a common sight at local airports, so if you are fortunate enough to live
near one, you can make a quick visit and see for yourself. Just don't get caught removing the cowl to look at the engine
unless you know the owner VERY well!
