Thank for the help, but I have modified the Saito by my self, with some power improvement (self made intake + brushed conrod). The break in is not difficult, it's my second FG-84 that i run !

I'm glad to here that....a lot of guys here in USA have had the 84 Saito blow the master rod. A friend of mine has two 90 Saito with no problem. I always wonder how much trouble I see and here with other Modeler's comes down to operater trouble ? You never know 😜

So it turns out that the vertical stab star is a decal made of paper while the fuse markings are paint

Let this cure then I'll buff it down and decide whether I like the uneven edges between colors

I didn't paint today , instead I cleaned up and got the flying surfaces ready to paint tomorrow. I also called Wylie warbirds to get my paint masks on order. Terry has great stuff on his site.
