    Yes indeed - milestones are what keep you going I think. Every now and then you have to be able to stand back and say "there, well done, that's out of the way".

    We figure about 2000 hours total in...

    I didn't know you were this far along, that looks great! Nicely done indeed.

    No problem, I figure airplane geeks are airplane geeks no matter what forum it is, and I hang out here. Besides, somebody had to post something..

    The aircraft is a bit draggy - it sure shows in the mileage!

    I hinged my Simple 400 by cutting full length slots with a Dremel thin saw blade in a router bed. The hinge material is 21st century fabric. Tight, floppy easy to move, tough, looks good.

    BTW fuel burn is a bit under 8 gallons/hour at 75mph cruise. We get 2:45 run time = 2:15 air time. You're ready to stretch and take a leak at that point so the duration is just not an issue.

    We don't need to use avgas, the compression ratio is so low (about 5.5:1) we could likely run Coleman fuel, and regular bronze grade has far more octane rating than we'll ever need. However we cannot...

    This is over the Geneseo NY area (Livingston County) at last weekend's air show. That's a big salt mine, and just west of that Is Letchworth Canyon and the state park. We did not overfly the canyon...

    The only justification for posting more photos is that this is my excuse for not flying fast RC models for the last couple of weeks. Yeah, weak, I know... :rolleyes: But I thought some of you might...

    I have a Magnum R fuselage and tail group but the wing is pooched.. perhaps we should talk.

    Not yet, I only started using the Liquitex. I just found it in a local art supplies shop and it has some groovy colors which was the motivating factor. I suspect clear butyrate would be absolutely...

    Actually, I just finished a model in Liquitex water based acrylic spray paints, with clear LustreKote over top as fuel proofer. Once I finish vacation and finish the plumbing and Rx battery install,...

    That looks pretty good to me!

    To me the front end of the little guys gets blathered with so much raw fuel and oil that I sleep much better with a painted fuselage with no covering seams waiting...

    I love using tissue on small sheet surfaces for all the same reasons, although I don't mind light film on sheet surfaces as much as I hate film on fuselages. Non-tautening nitrate to apply the tissue...

    The VR-DF is only ever run with a pipe, never a regular exhaust.

    If you're saying that the prop load on the bench was too much for static running with the pipe, I'd agree with that from the...

    You're the first guy I've seen mention using 2-part methacrylic adhesives for structural work on models. They have killer properties for certain applications, to me their claim to fame is the ability...

    Anything to report?

    I was window shopping the YS115, it's less money than I thought it might be. Nice hop up for a .61 size ARF.
