    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.

    Thanks Tom. Going slow but at least getting done. Lots and lots of time on the markings. Who would think a circle with a small circle outline would be such a PITA! Cut the hinomaru's on the frisket...

    Got more done today. Finished installing the retracts and inner gear doors. Cut out the hinomaru's on frisket paper for the upper insignias. The uppers have a white ring around the red so the frisket...

    Like I said in an earlier post, we didn't like the way the green looked after it was sprayed. Had nothing to do with the paint but it was our prep of the surface. We believe after wet sanding the...
