Coming up on the end of the rework of this LOU IV/ATHELENE model. Today I decided to repaint the yellow cowl; the factory paint job was too "orangey" for me. I found some paint closer to what the...

Flew my modified E Flite P-51D today on another test flight. I'm still learning the SAFE/ AS3X modes that come with the E Flite planes that I have never used before, and they work great. I took a few...

I flew my modified E Flite P-51D 1.5m yesterday in light to moderate winds and some turbulence aloft. The new mod of cutting down the vertical fin worked great, no difference in performance or...

I went ahead and did the "surgery" to the tail to remove the fairing on the leading edge of the vertical fin. Came out pretty well, I think. Have mostly finished repainting the stock E Flite P-51D to...

E-Flite 1.5m P-51D tail modifications?

Hi All: I just ordered the 1.5m E Flite P-51D painted up as Lou IV. I plan on doing some reasonable changes to it to look more like the WWII version of this plane, like painting out the blue camo...

Repaint of FMS 1500mm P-47 to a 56th FG paint scheme

Hi All: haven't been here for a long time. I recently bought a FMS 1500mm P-47D razorback that I totally repainted to an authentic livery flown by a Lt. Albert Knafelz of the 56th FG out of England...

Nice looking plane. I like the bomb drop caught on-camera. One minor point for future reference. On the photos of the right side of the aircraft, the squadron code letters should be "WZ", not ZW....

Hi Ken: that is probably one of the most frequent (and understandable) comments I have heard regarding the huge ammo doors on the P-47. I guess we all see them and wonder "why would they design such...

This is an interesting photo. I believe I took these two photos of Fire Ball back at the Gunsmoke Qualifier in Phoenix in 2008. I had made several P-47s with opening gunbays, and this Team Scale...

For what it's worth before this thread sinks into oblivion, the change to the tailwheel on the Mossie worked great. Did a test flight on it yesterday and it handles as good or better than before. No...

Hi Stuka Barry: thanks for the great tips! I am very wary of putting anything on foam that it disagrees with! I have been stung in that way, too. I'll use your advice on my next project. I don't have...

paint that sticks for foamies??

Hi All: I am going to redo a 1700mm P-47D to a different paint scheme. I'm wondering if anyone out there has ideas on paints that will resist peeling off from the foam even when the least tack tape...

Glue has dried, took it out to the driveway for some taxi tests. It is as good or better than before for strength and maneuverability, at least on the ground so far. I lowered the tailwheel about as...

Tailwheel adjustment on Freewing Mosquito for better scale look

Hi All: never one to leave things well enough alone, I did a little "surgery" on my Freewing foamie Mosquito today. It has been a fun and fairly easy plane to fly and land, but the tailwheel height...

RE: mechanism for making a retractable tailhook on Hellcat?

Hi All: photos finally uploaded ok. Might have been a glitch in the network or something. But as you can see, the tailhook is down where it is supposed to be.
