    Yes it does.

    The 80-120 grit sounds coarse, though. I use 320 when I prepare to spray.

    An x-acto knife, razor saw, pins and 2 bottles of medium CA should be all that you need to build a Kadet Senior kit. This assumes that you already have a flat building surface that accepts pins.

    It's probably less dangerous, too.

    Rags, soaked with linseed oil, can spontaneously combust. I've seen it happen.

    If left long enough, linseed oil may loosen up dirt.

    The oil penetrates underneath the burned on fuel residue, allowing it to be removed.

    My Kadet Senior Sport is an ARF, with everything set at the factory. It wanted to climb like crazy.

    The problem was that it needed down thrust, even though it wasn't mentioned in the assembly...

    It depends on who you ask. In my opinion, yes. Others will disagree.

    In the end, it's your model. Do what pleases you, and don't worry about what others think.

    Mixing paint brands is risky. Incompatibilities can ruin a paint job. I suggest that you spray test panels, before spraying your air frame.

    I'm not a fan of waterborne products. I use the oil based polyurethane.


    On darker colors, and over yellow, the yellowing isn't noticeable. It's a trade-off on lighter colors. The poly is...

    I agree with Dan.

    I use Rustoleum frequently. There is no need to clear coat, when using gas engines. If the model is glow powered, I clear coat it with Minwax polyurethane.

    I use the yellowing as a detailing tool. It makes my Scale, 30s Era models look more realistic, at least to my eyes.

    I don't remember a parts list, per se. There may be a list of contents, and a drawing of what is on each parts sheet.
