Monogram Piper Tri Pacer

Anyway, this was a lot of fun and nice change of pace from cars. I had no intention of building an IPMS National contest winner, just wanted a nice, out of the box, model. The only problem I had were the decals. This was an original kit and being that old they just wouldn't work at all so I've been cruising around on aircraft modeler boards and searching the web for a company that makes FAA registration number decals for models.
The paint is Testors Light Ivory and Guards Red.
Monogram did a Cessna 180 as a companion to this kit. Building this was so much fun I may have to get one of those too!

Depending on how bad the Decals are, you could Scan them with an all in one printer and print them on Decal Paper.
I remember my elder Brother building one of these back in the early '60s. I hadn't seen one in years. Then I came across one of these back in '90. I built it using a DupliColor Buick White and VW Red. I didn't like it being Tail Heavy so, I took a Lead Wheel Balancing Weight and cut, filed and carved it to look like the Engine. I glued the Hood(?) in place and it looks fine. I had no problems with the Decals.
I skipped the Hunters with the Dead Mountain Lion.
If I can only remember which box I packed it in.

Wow, this one is a blast from the past. I built this back in the late '60s. I even painted the hunter and dead puma. Very cool.
