    Two sanding tips for beginners

    I was working on an elevator, replacing old sand paper with new, when I thought I’d put up a quick post for people new to building.
    In the pic you can see how the elevator tip blocks get sanded to...

    Building a top flite spitfire. I really wanted the Mick Reeves kit but when you add in the retracts, engine and bigger servos it's just too expensive right now. With the parts I already have lying...

    No, she doesn't play pool. It's not a problem, I have my building table set up and started the build last night. I think she just wanted to keep my hobbies contained.

    I was getting ready to start a new build, using shims to level out my building surface, when I came across the perfect building table shown in the picture. For some reason, my wife put a stop to me...

    We build pretty much the same way, from the glassing to the servos - I bet you build on a budget!. It's helpful to get opinions of what/where people lightened the plane. The one thing I haven't...

    What mini servos would you use, and where would you use them? 4.8 or 6v?
  7. What did you do to lighten yopur Top Flite Warbird?

    I’ll be starting a Top Flite Spitfire in a few weeks, and I’m looking to build it as light as possible. If anyone has pics/descriptions of what they did to lighten your Top Flite warbird I’d...

    I'll be starting the exact plane soon. Did you do lightening holes? If so, how many and where? Also, how old is your kit, did you find any part-labeling errors or improperly fitting pieces?

    Glad to join, thank you.

    Is there a way to organize the posts - creating a single place where all the Spitfire build/research threads would be? Is that a "sticky" post?

    I'm looking for spitfire reference books I can get at the library.

    What I want to know is what MK variants operated in what theater during WWII. I'm planning on building a MK I or MK IX and am...

    I was thinking of an OS 75AX, but may go 4-stroke – it comes down to what I find used at a good price. I always fiberglass (water-based poly and ½ oz cloth) because I find that I tend to knock them...
  12. Surprisingly decided on the Top Flite Spitfire kit

    I've done a lot of research on Spitfire kits this spring, and surprisingly have decided on the Top Flite kit. The tail being enlarged by 19.5% really bothered me until I found out that unless you go...

    After a few try's it was easy to vacuum form. Here are some Royal B-17 cowls I made, saved about 12-13 oz I think.

    Thanks for the thread. I've gotten pretty good at vacuum molding 0.40 styrene, and may make some parts out of styrene molds from the wood carvings.

    That's a nice looking plane, Do you mind if I ask what the rft weight is - I would think that the OS .91 moves it around pretty well. Flaps?

    can you please send some pics of the tail section? I know the Top Flite tali is enlarged about 19%, I'd just like some side views, top views and rear views taken from about 8-10 feet away - can't...

    The biggest problem with a kit like that is paying for it without the wife finding out what I spent - building the kit is the easy part compared to that!
