The original plastic film covering was in pretty bad shape (all removed from underneath the wings for repairs & modifications)
so the model was recovered in Sig Coverall, doped & painted, in a WW2 German colour scheme. The underside of the tailplane
was covered in self adhesive aluminium tape to protect it from the heat. Australian turbine rules don't require brakes provided
the model doesn't move forward with the engine at idle.

I hope this info helps you out!




Not sure if this pic of the nosegear is any clearer. It's from the original post for this model, on this thread, back in 2007!
