A specific need of mine was control tab actuator modeling. I needed some good ideas, and here they are:

johnnyO; yes I would be interested in the scale hinges; I am not an advanced builder but would like to do as good a job as possible;
So far I have only built a few models but they were wooden kits or ARF-type of planes, although a bit special ones (see pics); and I did not aim for full scale; This one should get as close as I can get; I even plan to put in a 9-cylinder star engine (95 ccm)

So I hope to learn from you guys as much as I can; I am also interested in getting the cockpit and canopy scale-like i.e. should be able to open it

By the looks of these aircraft, you should not have any trouble building the T28. Very nice work. There are six hings to a set, they run $45.00 US. I am not sure what the freight would be for overseas shipment. I'll post pics of the install on the Corsair when we finish, should be this weekend.

Hello,

o.k., for the hinges I will give you an address in US to ship to (friend of mine) - another issue I am looking to solve is the pilot figure; for the WWI (or 1930s) planes I used pilots from AH design (see picture; another 1/5 plane of my collection) or for smaller planes I use the collectible figures which are available in 1/6 scale (e.g. corsair), and I remove as much weight as possible (cotton wool and wire as arms and foots) - but for the Trojan there would be particular needs for the pilot helmet etc. - any ideas ?

Another quick note, Just recieved my paint masks from Gary at Get-stenciles. they are just what I ordered, and Gary worked with my drawings to make excellent duplicate stenciles. Very timely and very reasonable. I will follow Garys' application techniques and hope the results are as good as his look. He also sent along a number of extra masks to practice with.
Couldn't ask for a better deal. Take alook atwww.get-stenciles.com if your looking for paint masks etc.

Michael, you will really like the way the Pica flys. I built one of these about 12 years ago, and enjoyed the heck out of it.
Enjoy

Thanks for the kind words,
We were unable to get any tests flights in over the weekend due to 10-20 cross winds. However we did get to do a bit of taxi tests, adjustments etc. Actually worked out pretty good, as there were a couple of small things to take care of that fixing at the field would have been a pain. No time to rush things at this stage. The GT 80 should have plenty of power as we were turning a 24 x 10 at 6800, might want to try a 24 x 8 to get a little more on the power curve.
Merry Christmas to all and we will keep you posted.

Hey everyone, sorry I haven't posted much lately. Weather has been terrible for the maiden flight when I can do it. I'm going ahead with the paint etc, rather than wait until it has a maiden flight. If I wait it could be late spring and then still have the finishing to do. I'm very confident that the flight will go without a major issues. I will post pics of the painting process, may be of use to those that haven't tried painting before. Will be using a modified base coat / clear coat process, the paint being a polyuethane insead of a two part lacqure. Should go on very nicely.
Should start posting pics in the next week

Well we finally got a little warm weather, so did some painting. Got the insigna white bottom surfaces painted. This new premixed two part polyurthane goes on so nice. Used 3 medium coats to get the consistancy of color due to using gray primer. Will be doing the gray upper as soon as I pick up some soft-line masking foam. This stuff works great for camo or other were a soft break in the paint line is necessary. Here are a few pics of the white surfaces.

Default RE: T-28 True 1/5 Scale

Putting down paint and doing the markings can really take some time. here are few pics of the process.
By appling the stenciles just as Gray suggested they are working out very well. Thanks for a great set of stenciles.
Step 1 is placing the stencile were it needs to be according to your documentation, once that is figured out, stick the pins through from the sticky side of your tape, locate the indexing holes in the stencile and gently push through from the back of the stencile. Place the stencile and lightly press around the pins, this will stick the tape that is holding the pins down to the surface. I removed the stencile carefully and applied a second piece of tape to the pin to make sure it would not move during the process.
2. Replace the stencile and pull half of the backing lose and cut off with siccors, being careful not to let the mask get wrinkled. Now smooth the lower half of the mask down on your surface. Gently lift the top half of the mask up off the pins and remove the upper backing. Smooth this out and your ready to paint.
note: MAKE SURE YOUR MASK IS STUCK DOWN AROUND THE PAINT AREA
3. Spray your color on in 3-4 very light coats, allowing time between to dry to the touch. You want to build up the color. too much at one time and you will get runs under the mask. When all is dry to the touch, give it another hour or so before removing the mask, with the newer automotative paints you can actually leave it on quite a bit longer with out pulling your fresh paint. REMOVING THE MASK........ GO SLOW AND TRY TO PULL THE MASK BACK OVER ITSELF, THIS WILL LEAVE A VERY NICE LINE. IF IT IS A LARGE MASK YOU MAY WANT TO TRIM THE MASK AS YOU REMOVE IT.
4. Lay the second Mask over the pins that are still taped to your surface, there should be index holes on this mask as well. Same process as with the first mask. 3-4 light coats and the removal process.
5. The last mask procedure is identical to step 4
Whalla your done, it looks great and you did it yourself.
The above procedure works great with the automotive paints, true enamels will take alot longer to apply due to their curing time, you'll just have to experiment with the type of paint you are using.
Thanks again to Gary at www.getstenciles.com

YAT, what size is your YAT, I know you have mentioned it but I don't recall. Did use stenciles from Gary?
Going to be out of town for next few days, so won't get anymore done until the weekend.

Well, pretty much got the paint done, I have two small stencils to finish and then do alittle durting up and we can put on the semi-gloss clear. The very small stencils are from Hanks hanger, They are so small, and not military font, so I'll go back and fill in the centers of some letters with gray. I couldnt be happier with both the stenciles. (get-stencils and hanks hanger)
I deffinitely recommend them for any of your projects, well worth the money. Here are a couple of pics.
