RE: CMP 120 Zero ARF Build thread

I think that moving the cowling 1.25" would be unnoticable.
Then you'll have room for the scale exhaust and, with the longer nose, you'll have a better flying model.

Opinions?
I have just gotten a 12.5x7.5 three bladed prop for my older Saito.80.
The blades are twice as wide as MAS.
Anybody have any experience or opinions?

RE: VQ A6M5 Zero Build Thread

LOL!
Thanks for the kind words Zero322.
While it can never be good as new, neither was the A6M5 in 1944.....
I am eager to get this one done and move on to the next one too.
