Cessna 140

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!

I am starting a side project to the work I'm doing with AeroBridge to refine my modeling skills and give more to the community.

As the title says, I am modeling a Cessna 140. However, it will be a specific 140, N76452. This Cessna 140 is one of the two planes I am training in, and will have chances to record sound and compare the real plane to the sim. It has an upgraded engine, a O-290, giving 140 hp, a huge increase over the stock 85 hp. This does come with a farther forward center of gravity.

I'll shut up and show the first renders, along with a picture of the real plane.

Where? I should be flying a Grumman Cheetah back to Atlanta from Texas soon.

 

I haven't started cross countries yet, but should be this summer flying around NW Washington.

It's a Venturi.

This plane doesn't have a vacuum pump, a venturi provides a vacuum to run the gyros.

Same way a carburator sucks fuel in, or a bottle makes noise when you blow across the top.
