There are a number of civil aircraft currently available.

Arii make some in  1/72 scale.
Academy make a series of 1/48 civil craft includin
 Cessna 150,
 Piper Cherokee 140,
 Beech Bonanza,
 Aero Subaru,
 Piper Super Cub.

Theres a Lear Jet out there in 1/48- Hasegawa I think-

Revell/Monogram recently reissued the Piper Tri-Pacer and Cessna Float
Planes as part of their SSP Program, which are still on the shelves at
many hobby shops.

HELP!

I'm looking for a source for models of civilian light aircraft (i.e.
Pipers, Cessnas, etc.).  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

What scale kits are you seeking?

We may be able to help with 1/72 scale kits.

All of these recollections are in 1/48.  I believe
ESCI/Scalecraft/AMT/Ertl etc. produced a Cessna 172 and 172 on floats.
Academy/Minicraft produced a Piper Cherokee 140, and maybe a Cessna 150 in
the same series.  I think they also molded a Piper TriPacer.  Hobbycraft
molded a DeHavilland Beaver and Beaver on floats.  They also made a Piper
J-3 Cub as the military's L-4.  Model USA did a Cessna 0-1, which is a
Model 305, and Testor marketed a Cessna 0-2, which is a Model 337 in
civilian life.

I know there are more than these out there somewhere, but I'm not able to
recall them at the moment.  I'm thinking that a Mexican company molded
several other light aircraft in 1/48 or 1/50, but I can't even recall the
company's name at present. Hope this helped a little.
