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.
As well as a comprehensive Assembly Guide included with the kit, there is a series of Youtube videos that guide you through the build. Created by the Percee kit designer and full of additional tips, tricks and guidance, this playlist will help immeasurably with your Microaces build.
If you are unsure of your ability to build this beautiful kit, you no longer need to be concerned. The support you get with a Microaces build is second to none!
