I am at the stage where I can apply paint to mine. I can't use normal solvent based paints due to health reasons so I am left with acrylics. Having looked at most of the brands, there is quite a variation of colour for shades of the same name.

I know that a number get their emulsion mixed at a diy store. but to do that you need to take a good printed sample which I don't have.

I don't mind which colour scheme. Aircraft will be a mk5 with no invasion stripes. paint will be airbrushed.

Thank you.

Sorry, can’t keep up with the acronyms generated on here. Got too much building to do.

I have the very old Craft Robo, the forerunner to the Cameo and it is excellent. I should upgrade to A3 as I am struggling with the 210mm width. I cannot get replacement blades for the CC200 and although the Cameo blades fit they don't cut as well as the older blades.

But a few hundreds pound very well spent.

I use the 100 micron paint-mask material from MetaMark, I have tried others but keep coming back to them.


Everything you can see was done on the plotter, roundels, stencils reg and nomenclature.

I have a plug in for Illustrator so do all the graphics heavy work in Illustrator.



Danny, Could you tell me which details are vinyl and which ace been sprayed using a paint mask.

I have only used coloured vinyl so far, only trouble is that there is a limited range of useful colours.

I agree with Martin. I also have a Silhouette Cameo. I have only used it for decals so far, both vinyl and print and cut.

I find it very useful (so do other club members).

Thank you Richard once again. It’s a problem I don’t usually encounter with tailskid sports models or whisper ’gliders’. Hopefully I got away with mentioning the “G” word without disturbing the masses. 😃😇😇.

Tailwheel arrangement help needed.

Looking at the supplied tailwheel bracket it looks as if the tailwheel will be off centre of the fus . Is this correct.

Any pictures of a complex one would be useful Thanks

Go easy on them Richard. I’m sure that Sweep was led on. It’s not in his nature to terrorise the public. If they behave and get started on the Mustangs and other bits, I’ll treat them to a bag of their favourite Haribo.

Hi Jonny,

I will try and answer your question

1) Very difficult to answer this, if you have basic diy skills, patience and can follow instructions then I would say yes. There are lots of threads on here following people’s builds.

2) Yes, wings are removable.

3) To enquire as to the availability of them it would be best to either email or pm Richard Wills direct.

Having got to the stage of fettling the wing fillets and how it goes around the cowl, I have come to the conclusion that the cowl does not need to be removable . If the only reason is to be able to remove the motor why not enlarge the hole at the front of the cowl so it can be removed from out of the front.The fillet could then be fitted to the cowl. Any comments welcome.

Did you manage to get any advice prior to your purchase? Its always recommended to contact a club to get the best possible advice if you can. Someone will be able to help set up and check your model over, obtain insurance and get CAA registration

Richard, Please put me down for a P51B -. This lot will keep you busy for a few days.

Thank you Barrie. Just looked it up and there is no Mac version.

13/05/2020 14:41:54

This maybe a silly question - if it’s 2d how can it be used with a 3D printer?

A P51 would be nice, B17 would be a bit too expensive as you need 4 of everything, Tiffie or Defiant also possible candidates.

09/05/2020 17:44:03

Ps. Chippies are also rather nice..

09/05/2020 17:04:02

Well Richard, we can’t leave your talent sitting around doing not a lot wink. We might have to cross the two boys with

a bag or two of Haribos. I’m sure they can motivate you.
