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.

Hi Phil,

The overspray from primer in rattle cans is dry by the time it 's a few meters away unlike laquer who containes slow thinners to keep it glossy , anyway it's an old smart that's probably going to be recycled or end up somewhere in Africawink 2

Just a little update on when this blog is going to go on.20200421_223322.jpg

The PSSA sabre mass build ,that came in between the magister build,is now in primer mode .

I guess it will take another month to finish her .After that it's full throttle to get the magister in the air !

The sabre has gun ports,a full cockpit,working speed brakes,remouvable canope and last but not least a working ejector seat and parashute ! Stay tuned !! and thanks for visiting !

Hi all !

Found some primer today so i blown every part clear of dust and primered all the top sides. I used MOTIP spray putty in cans as i did on the hurricane last year.

worked out very well ,even with the paint still wet,i couldn't see any spots needing more attention than normal.

Tomorrow i'll do the undersides and then it's time to paint all the interior parts so i can finish the canope parts.

Yes ,there's light on the end of the tunnel !!smile d
