The American two-seat high-altitude sports car, produced since 1958, is the fourth most successful sports aircraft of all time with almost 24,000 pieces (Cessna 172, Piper Cherokee and Cessna 180 occupy the places on the "crate"). The shape-upgraded and upgraded airplane (for example, the characteristic rear window and the arrow-shaped vertical tailpiece had models for the first time in the mid-1960s) with a typical three-wheeled chassis powered by 100-180hp motors as a training, also in the military aviation of a number of countries ... High-flying sportswheels model moped for propulsion by rubber harness; the manual and the plan allow the model to be built as a free-flying propeller with a combustion engine of 0.33ccm. The model is a classic all-metal construction in a scrap with laser-carved wooden parts, mock-ups of vacuum-molded plastic and plastic parts made by injection molding. The hull is designed with a true minimaet technology with bulkheads and a plurality of longitudinal slots that allow faithful reproduction of the round shapes. They are built in two steps - with the "slit" in the vertical plane, you place one half of the hull directly on the worktop, and then "stick" it to the other half. This ensures that even the hull of complicated shapes is straight and symmetrical, without the need for any special products. Because it is a small - albeit relatively simple - model, you should already have previous experience with classical construction and flushing rubber-driven models. The Cessna 150 is also suitable for conversion to a RC model with an electric drive - although the building plan does not offer this vario, it would not be a big problem for an experienced modeller. Kit includes: Balsa laser carved parts, Balsa beams, Vacuum molded parts (engine cover ...), plastic propeller with shaft and head, rubber bundle (rubber 5x1mm), plastic wheels, steel strings for chassis and other small parts, plastic wheels, cover paper, a sheet of wet decals, building plan. Treating the rubber bundle: Carefully wash the new rubber in soapy water and let it dry. Then lubricate it with castor oil (sold in pharmacies) or silicone grease for lubricating fishing lines (you can get in the stores of fishing tackle). After removing the model, remove it and store it in a sealed plastic bag. The lubricated rubber blade develops more smoothly and with less friction - it gives more power and lasts longer. It is also a good idea to make a new bundle - you only shoot 80-100 revolutions for the first 2-3 years before it can safely shoot more.
