Bargain again, red tail 1700mm P-51. From a mate of a mate who wasn’t using it.
Ok, so it’s not a sailplane, but a bargain too good to miss. FMS A-10 hardly flown, so grabbed it and i’m slowly putting some realistic features to it. Have painted the gear struts white, will also make the canopy open and close on a channel. It may take some time to do between the gliders.
Good mate of mine imported a few things from the US, amongst it was this, i had to ask if i could have it. As a kid flying with my uncle, this was the model to have, but as a kid could never afford one. It’s only been 30years, but I have one! Thanks Ian, your a legend. I’ll take a few more pics over this week when i have some more time.
Have decided to glass finish the Inside fuse with 3/4oz glass, I was a little nervous about adding a bucket load of weight. After watch endless youtube vids on the process I jumped in. Don’t use a brush, I seen a few that had small $2 brushes, nope it dragged the glass. I used the credit card process which worked a treat. Doing 3 sides at once was a bit stupid, but I managed to pull it off. Pic is…
