RE: New TufFlight Bouncer - Build Thread

At last I finished my Bouncer. Using an airbrush and some water base paint I added some color. I really like that the Bouncer is a blank canvas and I can customize the scheme just the way I want to....

RE: New TufFlight Bouncer - Build Thread

The tail wheel is made from 1/16th wire. I bent the wire, cut a slit in the rudder and glued it in with GG. I then glued a piece of G10 on each side to support.
