    RE: Marutaka/ Royal Zero 62

    I wouldn't bother. The filler will be able to handle any minor gaps. You don't want to be sanding glue if it carries thru the crack further than anticipated. I assume you will be glassing this.

    RE: Marutaka/ Royal Zero 62

    I've got a prestine Marutaka kit of the senior Zero which I picked up from the US distributor just before they quit making them. I'll be following your build closely.

    RE: What does this mean 80/10 balsa

    I'm a mechanical engineer by profession. When I went through school over 25 years ago we were given assignments with about 1/2 of the questions in metric and the rest in imperial, so I'm completely...

    I've never had an issue either, but I stick with online ordering. I wouldn't hesitate to order from them again.

    RE: new at fiberglassing, need a little help.

    I assume your mustang is fairly small because it is a foamy. I wouldn't recommend glassing anything smaller than ~55" wingspan. Even then, I'd recommend water-based poly-c on 0.6 oz cloth for...

    RE: Royal Kits

    I've bought a couple things from uswing on eBay and every order arrived as ordered. It takes about 3 weeks typically to ship from a US address to a Canadian address because of customs. I believe...
  7. Poll: RE: If there was no ARF's, would you still be in the hobby?

    I bought one ARF many years ago because it was a great deal in a hobby shop closing out sale. I later gave it away. I have no interest in flying something I didn't build, and assembling an ARF...

    RE: Yokosuka E14Ys

    I'd be interested in plans for a Glen as well, in the 65-70" span range ideally. The cowl, being a radial would be very easy to make. Its similar to a Norseman cowl I built awhile ago except...

    RE: Please help me do the unthinkable ...

    Like many others, I'd suggest you have someone train you. If that isn't going to happen, get a simulator. I have an old Realflight Deluxe, the original version which is at least 10 yrs old now. It...
  11. RE: What's on your building table or next in line?

    I'm just starting painting of a Flair Legionaire that I've modified somewhat to get closer to a Neiuport 17. Right now I'm thinking I may scratch build a 1/6 scale Polikarpov I-16 'Rata' and/or a...

    RE: Dauntless I Got In A Trade...What Now?

    Chad beat me to it. Sorry, I didn't realize they were that deteriorated or that you had buried fittings.

    Maybe you'll want to just fly it with the gear down for a start. If it flies well you...

    Try this:
    Insert a ~1/2" long piece of pushrod half into the old tubing and half into the new and then glue with Zap or equivalent. Then wrap just a couple wraps of scotch tape over the joint...

    I can help you with this. I'm assuming that you already have a canopy or know how to vacuum form one. What I do is take small brass square tubing and cut a slot down the middle of one side. To do...

    What were you using for low gloss clearcoat? I suppose low gloss still meant some gloss as opposed to dead flat clear.

    RE: Fiberglassing with Bondo brand resin

    I've also had problems with post-cure instability (parts warping) using Bondo brand resin. I use it for stuff like making spats but not for making large flat parts like landing gear covers.

    BalonS,

    RE: Albatros D.III Build along

    Hey BM,

    I'd be nice to see a photo of the exhaust system you've come up with. I've been thinking of getting a D.III as well and would not be going electric.

    Thanks,
