RE: Maxford Neptune V1 Color info needed
Sorry. I know that Ultra "True White" and "Cub yellow" are a perfect match for my other Neptune, but not my second one. Not every Neptune V1 is covered with the exact same colors. My other Neptune is a lighter yellow than my second, so there's no way to know what will exactly match.
I talked to Mr.Lee from China and he hand makes all his planes and boats by hand with only a few workers. When he runs out of covering he'll use, a different kind of yellow, blue, white and red so he can keep up with the production demands. What he uses is a form of China-Kote. Just remember that it only needs a very low heat setting on the iron when you want to get the wrinkles out. Most of the time I just use my trim iron and just hit the spots when needed. Keep an eye out on the covering, it will want to come apart at the seams from air/waterflow. I usually hit my seams with a iron just before I take it out to fly. And when the covering finally gets bad enough, I just recover the whole plane. Mono on the bottom hull and wing pontoons, and Ultra for the top.
Maxford no longer carries the original Neptune because of a business fall out with Mr. Lee, so I like to now call them the League Models Neptune because the original Neptune is still being produced, but there's no American distributor as of yet. It will be soon that the only way we Americans can order a Neptune, it will have to be shipped from overseas.
