Is this pathetic? Or obsessive? The most work no one will ever notice.
I had one of these CMP Edge 540T's way back in the day (2006) and eventually gave it away. I saw one NIB come up for sale and, for sentimental reasons, I bought it (any excuse to buy a new plane will do). So I start assembling it and I quickly saw that the blue stripes on the stab were way off on one side. Being detail oriented (OCD), I decide to re-do the stripes. Re-doing the stripes basically meant recovering the entire top of the stab. Everything you see (minus the white) was recovered on both sides. The blue stripes on the left side of the stab were so off that the inner-most one touched the fuse. Am I nuts? Would anyone else here go this far with a cheap Chinese ARF? I spent 3 hours on work no one will ever notice, lol.
