Default RE: Meister 1/5 scale P-47

Cherry Mary has the same Brison 5.8.26-10 prop. The foam sounds interesting.I thought it might be heavy and hard to remove in the event of a repair.We made the landing gear plate larger to absorb the shock of hard landings.Holding the sheeting with stretch wrap is a good idea.On another aircrft we made the mistake of holding the sheeting with hand pressure or weight.this rolled the washout right out of the wing.We also make doublers for the ribs around the l.g. bay.By the way,you guys talk about the nominal money involved,I bought Cherry Mary damaged from being blown out of a storage shed during a hurricane for small money,and the new one was given to me for nothing.I truly believed in Top Flite P 47's with G 62's,but the presence the Meister has and the gentle flying convinced me to step up.Take care.
