Default RE: COX Micro Warbird ARFs

Thanks for the aileron tip. I have one of those Dubro Micro Aileron System kits (#850) so perhaps I may use it on my Spitfire model. The P-51 seems to have plenty of agility with only a rudder but added aileron control would be pretty sweet.

I finished up the assembly by adding decals only on the top side. This would keep things a bit lighter and provide better orientation in flight. It doesn't take long for these micro Warbirds to get small on you in the air.

The plastic protective nose cuff was glued in place using [link=http://www.franktiano.com/ZapFrameset-3.htm]POLY ZAP(tm)[/link] from FTE. PolyZap is designed to work on space-age plastics; Lexan(tm), delron, polycarbonate, nylon, and rubber. It is ideal for clear canopies and all ARF kit plastics. It did not hurt the foam on my Cox Warbird.
