Any Scale Scottish Aviation Pioneers Out there?


After a few years of inactivity due extensive work traveling, I am slowly resuming the building of my Scottish Aviation Pioneer, Having completed all the design drawings, I am ready to continue the project this next year. Please be patient as I will keep you informed.. 


Happy new Year all!

  • David Ashby changed the title to Scottish Aviation Pioneer

Hello again! 
I just received more building material as finalise the challenging fuselage design, sorry, no CAD nor computerised stuff, just old fashioned pencils, rulers and such.

as I said before, due extensive traveling and work constrain the project was on hold for a long time.

I intended to build it 1/4 scale which it would have been 150 inches wingspan but at this size the Pioneer would be hard to transport and handle so I decided on 22% rather that 25%.

I find the cowling extremely small to cover the engine but that is fine if the engine head is exposed some, we will see.

Do you bond the aluminium or rivet some or all of the structure?  Something like Sikaflex or more traditional modelling glues?


Always amazes me the size of the Pioneer.  Looks like a traditional light aeroplane until you see a picture of it with crew in situ!

No gluing at all in the whole airplane, every skin will be riveted to the structure
