Default Alright I got another .15 sized one built, simpler this time

To replace the recent loss. :cry: The dims are 20" x 2.375" x 2" coro fuse, Mag .15 for power, 48" x 7"tip x 8.5" root, tapered with the ailerons, no hor stab. 1/2" x 3' spar doubled 18" in the center. The best thing, AUW 2# even! I'll get images tonight if I have time. Colors are black and yellow. This one's pretty clean, I may try a 7x5 on the nose.
Well here it is. I have not maidened her yet, but maybe this afternoon:

Believe it or not, I haven' t been able to maiden it yet. Life is getting in the way, arrggh! My switches just came yesterday, so I'll try to find time to install it this weekend, and maybe give her a toss.

I'm guessing you spray painted the black on?  I've been curious about how Rustoleum sticks to coro and PVC.   I'm certainly no artist but I ain't boring either! LOL

scuff up the coro, clean it with a solvent, then use GLOSS rustoleum, not flats or metalics, let it dry good and it works really good, its the only regular spray paint thats fuel proof. there is some modeler paints that are fuel proof also

Sweet, thanks Andy.  I knew to use the gloss, but I was wondering if it stuck well overall because until I saw the P-40 I wasn't sure if people were painting their entire planes because I hadn't seen any really outlandish paint schemes.    I'll give this a try on my next one.  I've used regular old WalMart gloss sparingly on some parts with good success, but I've never had it right on a wing or fuse in front of the exhaust.
