RE: Mint Julep

Some club members and I will be there as spectators. We usually go every year. It is relatively close and makes for a good time. We sit back and critique everyone's flying skills safely from our lawn...

RE: Midwest Texan Restoration

I saw another good site like this one time, but it was in English so I could read it. Anyone know of such a site that has differetviews of all sorts of planes.

RE: Midwest Texan Restoration

Thanks all.
When you glassed over it, was that done in one piece over the "combing" and the wing? I guess what I am curious about, does the glass get into the creases without making a "tent". Does...

RE: Midwest Texan Restoration

I hate that foam stuff. It expands forever. (maybe not literally, but it seems like it).
I too am starting back on mine after a long layoff. I am glad to see this thread start up again.

RE: Anyone have tricks for beveling ailerons

Yep. That is how I do it. Leaving that gap of bare metal is the key to not sanding too much. The only problem is that the bevel on that tool does tend to be a bit shallow. Not quite steep enough to...

RE: RCSCALEBUILDER down the tubes?

Voice of reason speaks loud and clear. I would like to know what their hardware/software/Net connection is. There is obviously a tight bottleneck someplace. I personally doubt it has much to do with...

RE: RCSCALEBUILDER down the tubes?

I do not like ARF's either. I understand their popularity, but I personally do not care for them. i will not begrudge others for using them though. To each his own.

I do however begrudge...

RE: RCSCALEBUILDER down the tubes?

Do you hear me complaining about the speed of this site? No, and you won't. Unless it gets slow. Then I will mention it to those who need to know. They depend on advertisement, whereas other said...

RE: RCSCALEBUILDER down the tubes?

I used to love the site. Until I complained about how slow it was. I do not see how anyone on here can brag about such a site. There is no doubt the contributors are awesome. I just think their...

RE: Midwest Texan Restoration

Jim, when you say Walmart craft paint, is that like acrylic paint? If so, what will you use as a protective top coat to make it fuel-proof? I am always concerned about compatibility. And I never know...

RE: Midwest Texan Restoration

It has always been my understanding that this bird seems to come out very tail heavy and pounds of lead usually has to be put in the nose to balance it. Did your g-23 have enough weight to balance it...

RE: Yet another t/f corsair

I doubt I detail it out very much. Just a cheap intro into giant scale. (Someone gave it to me.) I can't decide what engine to use. I was thinking a 26 gasser would do it but now I don't know. That...

RE: Yet another t/f corsair

How is that tailwheel thing coming along? I saw another thread in here that dealt with the tailwheel I was going to forward to you, but since you have this Build going, I can just do it here.
Well,...

RE: Midwest Texan Restoration

I have a couple more questions if you don't mind. :)
Since you are doing a rebuild I assume you had to glass the stab and fin already attached. Would you do it the same way given the choice?

RE: Midwest Texan Restoration

Thanks for the info. That method seems much easier/cheaper than west system and all that. I looked at the entire thread but I don't remember seeing how you applied the poly. Was it just a pour and...

RE: Midwest Texan Restoration

Great looking work you are doing. I am in the process of building mine and I am coming to the point of glassing. I was wondering if you could tell me what poly you are using as well as what primer....

RE: Hate it when the expiration date matches the maiden..

I just can't buy the explanation for this crash. On a trimming flight, you mean to tell me, the plane was tortured enough to induce the required centrifugal forces required to pull the wings apart. I...

RE: Scratch AP Plane Build

If you want it durable, glass it. Fuzz is a slang for fuselage. Not sure what a fuselarge is.:D
