The Cessna 120, along with its stablemate the 140/140A, were very successful, two-seat light aircraft that first flew in 1946 and from there over 7000 were built. It was a rugged, safe, reliable and easy to fly aircraft, and it cemented Cessna’s status as one of leading manufacturers of this type of aircraft.
This 1:6.45 scale, 1575 mm (62”) model has been specifically designed for the beginner and is an ideal first scale model build. The 120 is stable and easy to fly, yet is fully aerobatic. The model is of conventional all-wood construction. A laser cut wood pack is available, which contains most of the shaped parts needed, such as fuselage formers and wing ribs, but you will need additional sheet and strip wood and ply to complete the model, as well as all the hardware. A moulded plastic windscreen and a fibreglass engine cowling are also available. It is designed to be powered by a .30 IC engine, but experienced modellers should be able to convert it to electric power (details not supplied, so please send us information if you make a successful EP version!)
