Mine were about the same. Use small balsa scrap stock as basic fill and than light weight filler. Lots of sanding......

Thanks again guys. One more question, if I may, how do you finish the interface between the glassed portion and the covered portion of the fuse. Do you just use a ffiller like bondo and sand it down to blend the surfaces, or is there some other way? Thanks in advance.

I used lightweight spackling just used my finger to spread and shape it hardly no sanding. Then I put two coats of nitrate dope on it and all the air frame. The covering bonded much better with the dope. Only bad thing is the smell.

Default Just received plans for my Pica 1/5 scale Waco from e bay

I just received the 1/5 scale Waco plans from e bay and will be cutting and building soon. The plans look great as received from a seller on e-bay. I wanted to post this so I can be kept up to date on any 1/5 scale Pica Waco builds. I will post here pictures of my progress if that is Okay. I have one comment now with regards to the plans being the wood for the wing ribs (for example ) is 5/32 and that is NOT listed in my Balsa USA catalog . So I'm planning on using 1/8" as a substitution. Any comments??? Also You could call Me regarding the 1/5 scale Waco at 240-419-8444 just leave message for Richard and I will call You back.. Thanks

Richard Looking forward to keeping up with your build. I see no problem using 1/8 instead of the 5/32. I used 1/8 for my wing ribs with out any problems.

If you wish to become a brother in the Waco thread just ask and I will make it happen.

Post lots of pictures we all love pictures.

Have been out of action with complications as a result of eye surgery, but slowly on the mend, very slowly!!. Have made the suspension stronger and can now install the original fairings' that
Barth supplies in the kit. Will do a fit up then dismantle and paint and then back together again for the final time I hope. tmac48.

Nine O Nine, Mitch, when you built your 1/3 Barth did you use heat to massage some of the fiberglass parts into position or is my memory really shot.
Yes it is hard to realize Bill is gone. He and I talked quite a bit at the last Top Gun where I met his son and grandson. We met again at Danís house shortly after where he shed more of his knowledge.
Other times we would just share old sea stories about submarine duty and the life in the service. He will be missed be all.
