I'm at thesame page at the moment Chris !I glued the front part to the fuse with 30min epoxy, mixed some cotton flakes in it together with black pigment in case it gets visible from the inside .I'm going to paint the frame before i glue it to the canope,also with blacked epoxy. Make sense?

Assembled the brakes today so i don't have to do it when all is painted.The inside edges will be painted together with the fuse .The photo is not yet glued in place.Me happy

I used low tack masking tape on the outside just beside the place where the inside vinyl had to come.

It takes a lot of mesuring on a surface that you better not touch to avoid scrathes.

I found out that ,once the vinyl "grabs" the plastic,it's very hard to remove it without leaving glue residu behind.

Had to think on this one ...

I would try to put the second layer on with the first still wet , and without the use of more resin,to save weight. wink

Hi Chris ,great job !

Wich glue do you use to attach foto's to balsa ?

Do you varnish them before glueing them ?

Cheers , Dirk

Great job Phil !

I think with two layers of 25 gr glass and perfect sanded foam you can win from brown paper and glass.

Just my opinion ...

Hi all ,

Looks like this detailing is going to take forever ,and looking at other blogs,the''to do'' list is only getting longer...

Last thing i did was painting the seat and the back part of the cockpit


Next thing before the real painting is to finish the inside of the brake bay's

While everything is drying,i started to detail the cockpit.

First thing is to seal all the wood parts with G4. It's a sort of varnish to get rid of the wood nerves,we don't want them to be visible trough the paint.
