I'm about to embark on a very special build and I'm searching for photos of bird dogs. I want something unique but also not gaudy.   If you have any ideas or photos to share u would be immensely grateful.

Hi Tony,

I don’t want to be overly pedantic, but during WWII, you had liaison aircrafts like the Piper Cub or the Stinson L5 Sentinel, but no Cessna Bird Dog, whose first flight was in 1947. And of course, you had also liaison and observation aircrafts built on the British/Commonwealth side. I suppose you are looking for a US bird ?

If you were using the « bird dog » expression as a generic term, then this remark is of course void.

Sorry that I do not provide pics as expected, but I was a bit confused by your query ;)

I do not know what you want to do, but this one is certainly unique, and can be done with the Roden kit :

Cessna L-19 Bird Dog - Aeropedia The Encyclopedia of Aircraft

Then there is this italian example, a bit of a mishmash between decos :

Cessna L19 Bird Dog

And of course, versions for up North :) :

C-GMGH - Cessna 305A Bird Dog - Private

Focused on floaties, I know, but I cannot resist them ;)

Hubert

PS: sorry about the weird compressed look in the first two pics.
