It would be fine, I had good friend who had an OS 120 on his and big camera on the belly. It also had a Sullivan Genesis and regulation lighting.

well I haven’t been too impressed with the 125 yet but with this airplane I should be able to try a couple different engines in it and see how

she performs

I'm eager to get back to my B-25 with the FG-30's, but need to finish the Liberty Sport first. I also have 3 Saito that need bearings replaced. Nearly done with the painting on the Fuse, just have the top coat of dark blue and the red stripes to finish and the painting is done, but the wings still have a few coats left. The grey covers quickly, so only a couple coats are needed, but the top is Lemon Yellow, and will take several coats to completely cover, then there are two red stripes on the top of the top wing that have to be done. I can then fit the cowl to the engine and get the electronics done and set it aside for the spring. I still have to make the N struts, but want to get the painting done first. The N struts are semi functional, not really needed, but stiffen up the wings for better flight performance. There are guy wires that attach do the N struts and the fuse and top wing that I also need to figure out and also the cockpits need to be built.

Didn't realize how complex a build the plane would be, but it is coming along nicely, just too bad I don't have a Saito in my pile that would work on it. The YS is a good fit though, and I know it runs strong, just need to work on the regulator a bit to keep it from flooding. I had to take it apart as it was all gummed up.

The FG-30's though, man they sound great, will be a great addition to the B-25 when it flies.

I already have the YS fitted, connected, and balanced so going to stick with it for now. It also is less apparent under the cowl than a Saito is since going with a scale build.

You might try applying a white primer over the areas to be yellow then apply the yellow paint. It will help the color show properly.

I have an airplane I hope to finish before Christmas for No. 2 grandson and then start back on the airplane for Pinky Saito. Pinky Saito is obviously ahead of it's time and a trend setter. My No. 3 son was in the store and found proof that Pink is the hot color! Maybe Saito can dump the black on the Golden Knight and go to pink?



Oh and yes I do love Spam!

I tried that on the Cub, and it took two coats before the yellow stopped pulling up the white. This time I used Rand-o-fill and a light coat of Polar gray, which seems to be working. I mixed the first batch of yellow a bit too thick though, so it didn't flow as good as it should have, but what did go on seems to be looking good, at least at the overlaps. Hoping to get full coverage in 3 coats instead of the 6 it took to do the Cub. Whats funny is the dark blue isn't covering as well as I thought it would, but I only got two cross coats down, need at least two more, so hopefully no streaks show through. The rudder covered a bit better than the horizontal. The red will only take two coats. This time I am using actual dope thinner and not just MEK and Acetone to thin and it is making it a lot nicer looking, the MEK and Acetone dry too fast which leads to blushing. This will probably be my last cloth and dope plane for a long time, everything else I am building will be glassed, latex painted and 2K clear coated. The Citabria I am working on is plastic covered, and I covered the wing Saturday night, now just have to trim it with red. It has a Saito 45 on it, same as the one on the plans.

I could build you a 45 HP that would wake it up.

I could use a carb kit for a 90 FT., or at least one needle and seat to replace my bent one. Pain in the butt adjusting a needle with vise grips lol.
None of my shelf queens have the same design to rob.

I may have a complete 120 carb. I have a slew of 150 carbs . See if the 150 uses the same needle. Okie is looking for a 91 ( I think)

A very kind thing to do Gary. I made an offer on RCG classifieds for a nib 115, doubtful I'll get it but you never know.

Edit: Oh great, they removed the entire add. Hmmmm, must have been an unauthorized dealer. Oh well, I'm patient. Notice how I keep telling myself that? Lol
