Hi,

I get beautiful finishes with Ultracote but find on my glow planes, it's coming unstuck at the seams in certain spots. Obviously, I ironed the seams down on high heat but they just aren't...

This is a good podcast from aero-news that will help clarify the topic. I think we're going to be OK.

RE: Monokote

You're not crazy. New Monokote doesn't really shrink very well compared to Monokote made before 2003.

RE: Is Monokote Fixed yet?

I'm currently using Ultracote and getting nice finishes. It shrinks well, looks nice, and is easy to apply. The downside is that the seams come up easier and the overlaps are more noticeable. ...

RE: Is Monokote Fixed yet?

That 1/6 Waco is promising evidence that white Monokote is shrinking OK. Anything funky applying it like lots of stretching or really high temps needed to apply or shrink it?

Thanks, this is...

Is Monokote Fixed yet?

Hi,

Has anyone ordered a roll of white Monokote lately from Tower and had any luck getting it to shrink like it did 10 years ago?

Thanks,

RE: time for hinges

I used to use CA hinges and never had a problem, even on a 1/3 scale model. I hate risking dripping CA or fuming the covering.

I use Robart hinges now and think they're more professional...

RE: Floats for a 4 Star 60

RE: Sig four star 60 engine choice.

I have a Thunder Tiger 130 on my Four Star floatplane. It has ample power but I would prefer a YS 1.40 on floats. I'm sure it is a ballistic missle without the floats but I've never taken them off....

RE: 1/4 Cub Decals Needed

I haven't owned a gas plane in about 10 years. The last one was a 4.2 Sachs on a 30% Carden extra. I hated how that thing sounded and how much it shook. These 1/4 scale Cubs are so light...

RE: Midwest Extra and Cap!!!

I don't like how the modern hoverplanes fly. I know how to 3D but I think it's ridiculous now. It's really silly to watch. I enjoy flying graceful pattern lines with some wicked snaps, flatspins,...
