Ha, page 775 and I had my answer.
Such a wealth of ideas.

Today I also determined my plane was painted, well the fuse at least.
I don't know how authentic it is but once I can post some pictures you'll see what I mean.

10 metres (32') of bright yellow Ultracoat ordered.
I'm going to take a lot of detailed photos so I can iron on all the material.
I had looked at the smaller rolls but at 72" they don't leave a lot of wiggle room.

Should be interesting stripping the fuse down and seeing whats underneath.

Few more posts and I'll be able finally post a photo

I can understand but 10 seems high.
Specially when I'm here for the Waco content and trying not to input 10 posts of fluff.

So pulled a lot of the covering off the fuselage this evening.
Fabric based. Only a few ribs damage towards the back.
Now I'll have good access to cut in the battery bay.

10 posts is enough to see if a poster is going to provide actual content, while preventing constant posts and attachments with spam or porn.

Does anyone have a graphics file for the 1/5 scale plane?
My buddy has a vinyl cutter and has offered to do the graphics.

Thanks.



Removing the cover, inspecting for any damage.
