    Here is my version of the Thunder Quickee. It’s a little shorter on the nose and the tail.

    RE: Post pictures of your RACERS!

    Well, project #2 is done this winter, reclaimed a 2000' vintage Miss Ashley Q40.

    A bit of work here, and although not perfect, should be a suitable flier. This plane has been around the country, and did well at a few contests. Hope the new paint job does it justice. Some of you may remember the previous (Picasso like) paint job

    Hopefully its midair / ground hits will end at 3!

    Bernie, the white is klasskote, and the green metallic is PPG DCC single stage.

    There are a lot of great painters out there, I am not one of them, but I do pride myself in a smooth surface. The colors may not be perfect everywhere, but after a buffer of rubbing and polishing compound, my planes are as clean as any ones.

    RE: Post pictures of your RACERS!

    Here's my new Proud Bird.. It's first paint job was last Friday in Daven's garage.. It's second one was in my garage since it got up to a balmy 60 degrees a couple days this week.. When it comes to painting, I might as well count on doing everything twice.. It turned out pretty good the second time.. Just have to put on the clear and wait for some warm weather..

    RE: Post pictures of your RACERS!

    Has anyone tried the 2 stage system and what do you like and dislike about it???
    Also has anyone tried the water based systems out there.
    like this stuff!
    http://www.nelsonhobby.com/paint.html
    Can you do the color water base and then clear with the ppg type paint??

    RE: Post pictures of your RACERS!

    PylonDave,

    Yes, I have used two stage many times, and actually prefer it.

    I typically use the single stage when painting in a mold, but only had a little left in the can so I wanted to use it up. Klasskote is fuel proof without clear, so I didn't want to add a coat of weight on top of this plane.

    As to the Nelson water based paint, I tried to give it a go about 8 years ago. It sounded great until you get ready to use it. I really struggled getting my gun/pressure settings correct and was never fully satisfied with the final painted product and switched back to car paint. People will say you just got to get use to it, but even after trying many suggestions from Nelson and the boards I just couldn't get it give me an acceptable looking finish.

You got to get them all involved and working. Racing builds a big appetite. Hmmm Hee Heee. LOL.......... Honey is it Lunch time yet ???????

    Here's my Proud Bird II all dressed up and ready for it's first flight.. I was really conscious of the weight of things knowing these tend to be a little porky.. Still about 3oz over the minimum Oh well, at least it will be real good on those windy days in Muncie..

    RE: Post pictures of your RACERS!

    Looking good Lee. I like the wing design, might have to borrow that one...

    Here's one I painted this weekend, snow flying outside and all.

    Replaced the black with Atomic Orange from the 2008 Vette.

    Well here is my first Q40 that I finished. Painted it yesterday, D. Ulledahl (Chop) helped me paint it. Kept it simple, I think it looks good.

    RE: Post pictures of your RACERS!

    If there's one good thing that can come from a HORRIBLY wet and snowy winter in Seattle..its more time to play around with my airbrush! Here's the result. This is actually the first plane I've painted on my own. Looking forward to seeing how it looks lapping the pylons soon!

    Hopefully the pictures post...haven't tried posting pictures to this forum yet...fingers crossed.

    RE: Post pictures of your RACERS!

    Just finished this Q500. I took two Vortex wings that Crashed at Winter fest and put them together. The Left 3/4 of the wing is from one plane and the right 1/4 is from another plane. Both from Texas!! Hope to Maiden tommorow.
