    RE: Fokker DRI Build Along

    Question ? For painting my DuBro 7 inch wheels. Should I simply mask off the rubber or remove the rubber tire from the wheel? I am planning on scuffing the wheel with a scothbright pad. Any advice?

    RE: Fokker DRI Build Along

    You cannot remove the tire from the rims, they are "keyed" into them.
    But you can roll them back enough to get paper or tape in between the tire and rim.

    RE: Fokker DRI Build Along

    I dont mind building wings... Looking at the fuse pics it's just a larger concept of the 1/6 N17. Looks identical except for the stringers creating the rouded sides. Did the DR1 have a sprung tail skid?

    I will again mount the Ignition above the engine to get the weight forward.

    RE: Fokker DRI Build Along

    Doe the ignition or tank not need to be in some sort of foam to help with vibration. I'm asking so I can learn because glow fuel will bubble/foam up. Is this not an issue?

    RE: Fokker DRI Build Along

    Kitbuilder, My tank sets on a 1/4 piece of Foam. The ignition had no instructions of cushioning and I have had no problems. Zenoah does warn against wrapping the ignition due to overheating. The back is to be left exposed for cooling. I left a 1/2 inch gap between the firewall.

    I under-estimated my covering order and Ran out of Green and Yellow Solartex. No one in Phoenix stocks this stuff. So I will be delayed a bit.
