I'm just finishing up a BUSA N28, too. I should have a pic of the finished plane in the next week.

Here is how it looked last week. I've finished all the covering and painting and have applied most of the graphics. Just some minor details to finish and then the first test flight.

Hey Jaybird do you know what the center of gravity is on that BUSA eindecker is ? I have one I got second hand and had to work it over and recover it about to mount the motor but I haven't been able to find the cog anywhere on their website or anywhere else for some reason maybe I just haven't looked hard enough.
Thanks Tracy

The manual states 4-1/8" back from the leading edge which puts it just behind the spar. That's where mine balances with a Saito 91 four stroke and fair amount of lead.

Flight video (surprise!) can be found here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWAulGa3FL8

It depends on how the kit was built. I had heard that this particular kit comes out tailheavy because of the solid balsa slabbed sides, top and bottom so I changed a lot of the construction from the cockpit back to make it open frame and cross members. I also did pull-pull controls to save weight and for a better look.

Stunning.
Someone once told me to get that finish in the paint you have to chew up a 30.00 dollar brush, what's your technique?

My 5 year old BUSA 1/3 Fokker D-VII / ZDZ-80 power and 1/3 scale Ron Weiss Fokker D-VIII which I purchased as a wreck and restored w/ G62 power. The D-VII is hands down my favorite.

The fokker streaking technique requires lots of paint remover because your never happy with the first results and its trial and error. Basically paint a base coat color whether it be gray or light blue and use latex. The trick is to use a wide two inch brush and take sharp scissors cutting the brush fibers at the tip off to reduce coverage and create streak lines. That’s the easy part…next use olive green or light brown and water it down. Take brush and stoke always in one direction and move down. The color should fade showing dark and light streaking. Once you get the hang of it its easy.


Some of my hanger queens. 1/4 scale scratch Sopwith camel and powerline hobbies 1/5 scale dr1 using solartex and this streaking effect.
