Default RE: OK Models, Baby build thread

Thanks Pete. So far it looks like there is 3 of use who are interested in this thread. Lots of people look so I will keep it going.

Here is what I got done to night.

I finished the planking on both versions and I got the spars built up. The stock spruce spars work just fine. I just went with a carbon fiber and balsa spar to save some weight and make the wing a little stronger. The carbon is pretty stiff and I used medium hard balsa.

I have been thinking of what color to cover them in. I was think of all day glow colors but I was thinking this is an old timer sort of looking plane. It does not have a nice stick and tissue frame work like the Kadet or the old balsa free flight planes so I do not think trans red would work. I was thinking of bright red and metallic electric blue. Teh other could be a bright yellow, orange and red with some neon blue for contrast. Still thinking of color schemes.
