    I have to second the AT-6 landings. I have both the the H9 and the old Kyosho fiberglass series. Both fly well but tend to be a little fast on the landings and the gear makes them somewhat...

    Finished up sanding the bondo Gerry put around the antenna mast receptacle and added a better scale looking tail wheel I had. The original tail wheel wire was long and had the plane with a "tail...

    Hello Brian,
    Thanks for the tip and process. We do use a tack cloth in our finishing process. With our technique, we spread the resin very thin both with heat and a credit card squeegee. With this...

    I am watching with interest as I purchased a Dick Katz short kit from Kit Kutters. It is the 1/9 version and I am making a float plane out of it. It was on what originally the largest set of EDO...

    OK, first off, sorry Tom, couldn't get by Gerry's early enough to get a sunny outdoor picture so that will have to be another day. Gerry repainted the exhaust stacks and now the weathering has begun....

    Thanks Chad. Not many have chimed in and I think it's because this is a small airframe so I guess you and Tom (scaleonly4me) are my fans! LOL. I've noticed no matter how nice some of my and my buddy...

    Taped off the leading edges today for the yellow paint. Realized I was too far back initially as you can see in the picture of the wing bottom before paint. The yellow would have ended up on the gear...

    We discussed both ways. Didn't feel we needed the extra paint on the plane and putting down an inner circle in place is easier than trying put the outer circle in place and have them come out even....

    Here is tonight's work. Painted the white rings and the yellow tail numbers. The Badger frisket paper works real well so far. It's easy to cut and releases fairly easy.
