RE: Fiberglassing question

Liquid sheeting? What is that? I have fiberglassed a few planes, didn't always do a great job of filling the weave.  It still flys ok, and al least the fiberglass and paint don't loosen up and flap...

prop lock nut

I have a Saito 91 that is missing the lock nuts - do I have to order them as a Saito part or are they available from other sources? They are 7mm. Thanks

RE: bigger Something Extra?

The only Uproar kit I see is a 40 size with a 48 inch span - is there a bigger one?  I don't have a kit to trace the parts from, just a built plane.

RE: Scratch building Astro Hog ( help with tail)

There are no rubber bands anywhere, maybe the very first Astro Hogs built in 1957 used that -but not our planes. It sounds like you have the horizontal stab figured out. There doesn't seem to be any...

RE: 58 cd idle problem

Well, I guess I found the problem. The foam around the fuel tank had shook loose and wasn't really padding the tank much. I pulled it apart and got the foam back under and on the sides of the tank...
