The Cessna UC-78, was used as a cargo and personnel transport aircraft; It has two 450 hp Jacobs R-755-9 radial engines, operated with two crew and capacity for three passengers.

There is very little information on the operation of this aircraft in Venezuela, the only thing that is known, is to have operated in the mid-1940s.

To build this model I use the 1/48 scale kit: Czech Model UC-78 Bamboo Bomber, the paint is acrylic from Model Master; the decals are home-made.
