Microaces Percee Militair Twin Engine Kit
What is Percee?
Based on 1930s twin engine passenger aircraft (the Percival Q6 'Petrel' being a predominant influence), the Percee is the first twin engine kit designed by Microaces.
The classic 'Golden Age' look of the Percee, with wide fuselage and fixed, faired undercarriage is wildly nostalgic and lends itself to multiple livery options with very different and appealing results.
A Modelling First - Tyvek®
The Percee is also the first kit in the Microaces range to include Tyvek®, a lightweight, malleable material used to skin the Percee fuselage and nacelles. Tyvek®, created by Dupont, has been around since 1955, but this is the first time it has ever been ustilised in manufactured model kits in this way (to our knowledge).
The RAF style livery of the Militair is reminiscent of the Liaison & Communication Aircraft of the 30's and has the advantage of being highly visible with ultimate orientation recognition too.
Up the realism with LED Lights
The NEW Microaces LED Lighting Kit (B) is now available to order (shipping June 2022) in a package with the Privatair Kit, saving 20% over buying the LED Kit B separately. It includes wingtip navigation lights, anti-collision and landing lights PLUS the LED Control Unit. This easy to install enhancement adds another level of wonder to an already eyecatching model.
The Militair + LED Lighting Kit is also supplied with clear vac formed lenses for all of the LED bulbs, providing a scale look for each light even close up.
