    Howdy Guys,

    Well, its me again. And yes, I come bearing a find that is new to me and possibly to any other modeler who joined this forum after aug of 2003.
    Being in as much as I live in the greay state of Arkansas, where our number one thru three products are cotton, soybeans and rice, I see this plane almost daily, even in the winter months flying low over the fields and making really great acrobatic manuevers. (you gotta hand it to the cropduster pilot, they are a work of art when flying their planes, dodging trees, powerlines, birds such as ducks and geese here around stuttgart, the duck hunting capitol of the world.)
    Anyway, here is what I brought ya today, the piper pawnee crop duster. I have been looking for this model since I started card modeling.





    OH by the way, i am also in search of a grumman ag-cat biplane cropduster if anyone knows where one is, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
    Once again, this may be a repost, but its new to me, and i am sure its new to alot of ppl out there.

    When I win, you win, I share the wealth.

    HEY Guys,

    Well today has been a busy day for me, I came in here this am, posted the piper pawnee link, saved the file, printed it, went and got my oil changed and tires rotated on my expedition and still was able to build the model.
    So, I thought I would share a pic of the completed plane with you. This represents about 3 hours of work tops. I found that it was a very nice model and pretty easy to assemble. The only trouble I had was affixing the front of the cockpit to the fuselage, but it eventually worked itself out.

    While I am posting pics, I thought I would show my first card model from jan.18th, 2005, fiddlersgreen J-3 PIPER CUB. I included the links on the photos, stop by and visit them.

    Looks like a dead thread.

    If anybody still wants a Piper Pawnee though, there's one available at Fiddlersgreen.

    I hope it's alright with you to publish the links that was sought for. It seems a very nice model (as is the Fiddler's Green version!):

    That http://web.archive.org link was kind of wonderful - thank you!

    And, shucks, while I'm at it, why not republish the model here. It is certainly nice enough. Have a look at the sample page first.
