    RE: P38 "FULL METAL JACKET"

    Hi Di n Dave,

    Thats good news on your Tigercat,it's a shame they sold the one up at Duxford,I never did see it fly[&o][&o].
    No probs for the brazing,just let me know what you wat doing.
    How is Arron getting on with the P51,were the plans any good that I dropped off at the WF.

    I spoke with Mike S yesterday, he has turned out another few birds and is testing out his new Raptor which he is hoping to take to Colt,Mike is going to need to get a Truck to move his Airfoce arround.

    Off down to the work shop now for some more riveting on the last boom!!!!!!

    Cheers Graham

    RE: P38 "FULL METAL JACKET"

    Hi Skul,

    Sorry I missed your post, the Cessena 195 colour scheme looks great.
    Skul, the best way I have found in using the Mira chrome is doing all your other colours first along with any lettering,then mask all that off then apply the Mirra chrome,the reson for this is that if you use a strong masking tape over the Mira chrome it will leave a slight residue on the chrome,even the low tack tapes might leave a residue,so I think it is not worth the risk as I have found out to my own expence.

    Cheers Graham.

    RE: P38 "FULL METAL JACKET"

    Graham, what sort of primer would be best? Should I spray the colors over the black base coat, that goes under the chrome?
    Thank you so much for your advise, painitng is by far my weakest skill, in building aircraft. So far I've been lucky in building approx 10 aircraft, this is the first one I will have to paint.

    RE: P38 "FULL METAL JACKET"

    Hi Skull,

    Yes you could spray the red over the black,you would also get a good tone on the red buy doing this,Skull do a test peice on somthing else and in the same sequence you are going to do the Cessena 195,then you can see what you think is best for you.
    Just remeber to get that surface blemish free!!!!.

    Hi Enry,and thank you very much.
    I will get some pics on the flaps,but they are not the follower flaps,I will do all that on the bigger 125" kit

    Got the the 38 out today as it was not raining all day I was just checking the fit on Darrells Gear,and yes,tucked away first time and no messing about,retract time was also very good,the only thing was the sit,I think it might just be to high at the back end,should bo ok though,I will just add a bit of flap on take off to get her un stuck.
    I will also tuch up some of the panels as they are just a bit too blue in some places,but she is starting to come togeather

    Cheers Graham.

    RE: P38 "FULL METAL JACKET"

    Yes sir Mr. Graham! I spent all day yesterday just working on the stabs, to get them ready to glass, and then at 23:00 I laid-up my first glass. This is the first 1/4 scale plane I'm building for a customer, and it's going to be my calling card for more large scale work, so I want it perfect. Here's a pic of the glass I laid last night, from the pic I cant tell there's even glass on it, I hope that's a good thing. Graham if you ever, come to the U.S., and make it to Texas, let me know, and I'll buy, at least lunch, and even a drink or three.

    RE: P38 "FULL METAL JACKET"

    Hi Enry,

    No ,this one is the Ziroli tester ,and yes the bigger one is from Andreas which will be highly modified to suit the new DA 80'S.

    Here are some pics of the bigger one,and Darrells gear fits perfect,just need some bigger wheels.
    Saying all that if the Ziroli flys ok I might sell this bigger one with the gear,as the XXL Corsair is got to be finished off for the Summer,can't wait to hear both MG Cannons firing off

    Cheers Graham.

    RE: P38 "FULL METAL JACKET"

    G.G. That looks great!! could you give a shot of the can so I know what to go look for. We've already got the Alsa paint system on the way for the 195, but in the future the Krylon might be the ticket. We spent, I think, because I haven't got the invoice yet, like $350.00 on the Alsa paint but its a 3 part kit.

    i am currently working on a ziroli p-38 and i am real curious as to how much of this paint it takes to complete this bird, any ideas? i do really like the way you have done your bird. up till now i was thinking of going with the olive drab finish. but now after seeing what you have done i am rethinking!

    Hey Graham, it' an old Byron kit, Glass fuse, built up wings and tail feathers. She's been at time a monster, but as she's coming together, it all seems worth it.

    eagledancer, welcome aboard!! Have any pic's yet? You might look into that Krylon that G.G. is using, it looks pretty good in the pic he sent. The Alsa stuff, appears to be great stuff, but you need deep pockets for it.

    RE: P38 "FULL METAL JACKET"

    Hi Eagledancer,

    Regarding the amount chrome paint used,well this is not very much as you are just dusting over your base coat's,for example I just used just over a cup full on the old badger brush to do the nose cone on the 38,so you are not laying it on thick.
    The other good thing about the lesonal Platnum you can buff it back with fine wire wool to give you a more grained look to your finish.

    Here are some shots of the lesonal on some other craft,you can see on this P51 the wire wool tric which looks very good,I'm going to do this on my 38 but not as heavy,I will also mask off different panels and get the grain going in different directions.
    I also love this shot of Ralle's Super Saber with all heat wear.

    As Skull said,have you any pics we could drool over.
    Cheers Graham.

    Hi Graham,

    Blinkin el mate!! where are you finding these photos!!! that jet tail section looks amazing!!!

    Im glad Mick has finaly taken the fuz of the Hawk, i managed to laquer the rudder, air brake and the tailplane top decking which he has also taken, i think he is ok, just a bit disapointed that it couldent be back before now so that he could take it to Cottishal, mind you, the wings will be finished this week!!!!!

    Weather looks good today..........should have gone flying!!!

    Keep up the good work,
    Di n Dave..
