Hi David,

I've chosen the Spirit 78 scheme, but please feel welcome to join me with another one so that we can make a team. It's only a colour scheme - no one has ownership of any one in particular, and as Phil (I think) said on another thread, it's good to see multiple examples of one scheme as it gives a sense of cameraderie.

You could also share any paint masks/decals if they are made!

Hi David, sorry I've only just seen your post.

Would be great if you were to model an aircraft of the Patrullia Ascua, after all they were an aerobatic team.

I think it could be cool to have 2 rather 'flashy' looking aircraft on the slope thumbs up.

Cheers,

Simon.

Agree with all the above posts and don't even worry if you do manage to recreate the same aircraft. There are many other builds also taking place outside the forum or simply without build blogs and quite likely a few more of the more sporty colour schemes we don't know about.

Join in with us on the journey and if possible come fly with us too. yes

Hi David,

Did an order with Slec…….(for more than one but less than three), and was shade short or £90......including £10 post etc. Have you doubled up there somewhere?

Cheers

Dave,

My wood order from SLEC (excluding horns, wire, magnets and accessories) was £58 incl post. That included 48" sheets and strips for the fuselage, and spruce spars. I normally buy a couple of extra strips, in case of breakages or very bent stock.
