Default Its ALIVE!!!!

hehe hey everyone just wanted to show the latest pics of my CBM build. The painting is a pain in the arsssss. I hate airbrushing LOL. I have no way of knowing how much weight I added with the countless coats of thinned out water based paint [&o] I just hope since it too so much to get a good coat that it was just really thin and not much paint. I have some over spray clean up and stencil work today, then I will spray on a extremely LIGHT coat of poly to seal it all in.

FYI for who of u that care I found a place to get turn around pipes for 45 and 90 size engines!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hope to test fly it next weekend!!!!!! enjoy the pics

I done one of these a few years back and really enjoyed learning some very different building skills. Most of which I use often even with balsa built up kits. This thing fly’s rock solid and rolls like it's on a shaft down the center of the fuse smooth as glass. I will caution you to make sure however you have very good running engine. I do hope you decided to go with a pumped system on your engine. The fuel tanks are very far from the carb to work with the (extremely quick throttle response) you will need for those very hairy landings. Much like its full size counter part lift is kind of an after thought with those thin wings its all in the power plant. It's still a very cool plane for a design nearly 30 years old don’t ya think? Sadly however I think it’s soon to be a faded memory to our US flying forces. Owning to more reliable twin engine thrust vectoring technology and radar stealth invisibility we have come to adopt to our more modern aircraft. The F-16A first flew in December 1976 and the first operational F-16A was delivered in January 1979 to the 388th Tactical Fighter Wing at Hill Air Force Base, Utah. On 18 March 2005, Lockheed Martin Aero plant in Fort Worth, Texas, delivered the final F-16 Fighting Falcon for the US Air Force. Lockheed Martin continues to produce the F-16 fighter for international customers. A total of 2231 F-16s have been produced for the U.S. Air Force, the active USAF fleet of today counting more than 1300 aircraft.
But with any luck the models will be around for many years to come. So we may continue to honor these fine aviators by building the planes they fly to protect this free country we all love so much.

It looks great, I love the unusual scheme.

I'm not sure I would have gone with blue and white, on a slightly overcast sky I would have a hard time keeping sight of it.

yeah bad color, but I really liked the mig 29 version. I just made up the design and drew out some designs that I thought looked good. The tail number is from a Alabama nation guard a/c hehe
