    ...... just trying to decide what color(s) to cover it in. I will probably use a combination of transparent and solid film.

    RE: scratch built biplane

    I have begun covering it using transparent blue and opaque cream Monokote. It will mostly be blue except for the cowl, landing gear farings, rudder, and wing leading edges.

    RE: scratch built biplane

    The fuselage is basically done except for a few minor details. I will be moving on to the wings soon. I am using Monokote. I have gone through a lot of it so far just to get the turtle deck right. I probably covered and re-covered it at least 8 times until I finally figured out how to get the wrinkles out between the stringers.

    RE: scratch built biplane

    Well I didn't like the way the first covering job turned out so I went with a transparent blue and white. Then I learned the hard way about getting epoxy into the hinge points. After that I decided to rebuild the entire tail section. Instead of the support bars on the top, I put them on the bottom and used wire supports on the top. The tail is very rigid now, probably over kill but it looks cool. I will be starting the covering on the wings next.

    RE: scratch built biplane

    Almost done now. Just need to paint the wheel hubs white, glue in the ailerons, and seal the aileron gaps with clear monokote.

    RE: scratch built biplane

    Its finally done. All the loose ends have been tied up and it has been balanced. Heavier than i thought at 43 oz with the battery, but still a light wing loading of about 11 oz/square foot. I had to add about 2 1/2 oz to the nose to get it balanced right. I plan on flying it after some taxi tests and shorts hops.
