Thread: Tissue Covering

Thanks Douglas

Hi, do you let the first coat of varnish dry first, or lay the tissue on whilst it is still wet?

Congrats a cracking job there

I have used heavyweight tissue and poly-c on foam, and that worked well. It gave a tougher skin, and it was probably a lot lighter as there is no weave to fill. I will try it again next time I am covering some foam or balsa if approprite, although its not likely to be as hard wearing as the glass.

It might be worth a search on RC groups edf forum too. My model is slightly smaller so not sure it would help much.

Thanks Danny. Might be a while before I get round to it!

Tripwire, I have used some Lifecolor paint on my Graupner Eurofighter 64mm jet which went on nicely. The jars are pretty small, I can try and check. Think I used 3? Thinned with screen wash fluid.

Sorry to butt in, but could you post what needle size, thinners and pressure you used Danny? I have some I might try and spray soon.

Very nicely done

I would recommend the Eflite P47 that has just been re-released. I have the older silver version, and it flies great. It should be fine with the same 3s 2200 packs, and if you can fly the Acrowot this will be no problem. As long as you have somewhere ok for retracts that is!

I have the second gen one with a .61 4 stroke. It flies really well, and was about £135 when I bought it. I saw one at wings n wheels yesterday, and winced at the price! If it was the 90 size maybe, but too much imo for that size. Shame as its probably a nice model.

Congrats I imagine the desert camo gives a good contrast top to bottom, and stands out better on a dull day. It is growing on me!

Cracking job there sir

Thread: Paint for Spitfire
13/06/2015 13:44:45

I sprayed my foamy/glassed Eurofighter with Lifecolor paints, which went fine. The problem I had was the top clear coat. I picked the correct shade of light grey for the Eurofighter. When I sprayed a Matt sealer coat, it turned it a lot darker, ruining the shade. This is not exclusive to this make of paint, I think it's because I used a Matt colour coat. A similar colour aerosol spray which was satin did not do this. I don't know if this just applies to grey shades, or if I did something wrong. I suggest a test piece before committing to the model!

That's the one Stuey. Linds

Cool thanks

Hi Linds, is it the Deluxe Eze-kote you used? I tried a bit brushed over some dulux samples like yourself on the underside of my F-15 foamy, it has a satin sheen. I have also brushed the dulux paints with a fine sable brush thinned with washer fluid, it does go on well. I havent tried spraying it yet but i have read that it works well.

I would not expect it to be glow proof IF it is similar to Poly-c, at least not the 10% I use.

Thread: SLEC Bearcat
07/06/2015 20:24:34

My Bearcat is now basically finished. It had its first two flights today, the first of which was a bit fraught as it climbed alarmingly! I think it was a lack of downthrust, needing all of the available down trim. The elevator was pretty sensitive too, so I switched in the rates. Second flight was much better, the cg was good and the balance of controls much better. The stall is a straight ahead mush, and the landing into a moderate breeze easy with a tiny bit of power. With a few little tweaks it will be really good, very pleased

Two nice schemes there! Bet they were fun to apply

Thanks for the update Tony. Looking at the pics, I cant see any reason why a 80mm fan would not go in there. It is going to be a 6S model anyway, so its a step up from the current 4S models. That is until my Freewing 90mm Eurofighter is ready! I look forward to the plan, and to see if it will take the 80mm.

As Andy said, shame about the handlaunch version. It does look very good flying! Are you going to have the chance to try a bungee launch Tony?

My Dad went today, and I was going to go tomorrow and meet him up there. He suggested it was not worth the 2 hours trip each way. Not happy about it as I have been looking forward to it. I also need a few things including fuel. A shame circumstances seem to have worked against the show by the sound of it.
