You should be proud, all very nicely done. I did somewhat follow the Edge reconstruction. I did however notice none of them being glow powered. I have in fact used the Appliance epoxy white and black. It was a little .40 size Cassute that was built for a cancer awareness/fundraiser race we had when I was still in Sacramento. The airplane was flown a total of 8 flights between a couple test flights and the heat races. Afterward the airplane was given to my mother in law as she had just a week before finished her chemo treatments. In that short of time the 15% glow fuel did soften the paint and reduced the gloss considerably. I had to repaint the cowl before giving it to her.

Your comment said wet fuel, not glow,, but really don't see how fuel type matters in regards to if someone is happy or disappointing in the finish of their plane,, I've already acknowledged I wouldn't use these products without a glow fuel proof clear coat.

But, matter of fact the Yellow on the AT-6 is in fact glow fuel proof, I use the same Systems Three product in satin form on my warbirds usually,, also glow fuel proof even though those run gas, I've tested it with 30% nitro fuel

P.s. The Krylon Appliance white has a lot less grey in it that the Rustoleum,, IMO they really should call that stull Appliance Light Grey
