Landing gear is certainly not needed on this size airplane but it looks so much better. I like landing gear and put it on all of mine.

You have too many. I think you should send one of those to me. Then I can use my kit for back up. :lol:

Nice looking bones, Doug!

Do you use a tail wheel or leave it as wire?

No tail wheel on slabs, that’s just silly! :lol:
Just the wire skid is all you need. I never use a tail wheel.

Mike,

Not sure on favorite, since I'm getting back into things, but I'm going to lightly dust get with black spray paint and covee with clear monokote.

I just finished a Sig Four Star EP20, and I used red and blue ultrakote.

Built this one a year and a half ago. It's a little worn now, but still kicking! I'll have another one built and ready to stuff when this one is ready for retirement.

I use ultracote and sometimes tranparent, its lighter.
I really like the ParkLite stuff but limited stock and colors.

This size plane you should stick with the lighter coverings..........Parklite, Ultracote lite, Doculam, Chinacote.

Thanks. Here's my progress so far. Gonna prep the wing tonight and -try- not to stay up waay too late again


All the bones done except for the ailerons. Honestly when I saw the build thread I thought the wing construction was odd, but it worked really well and came out straight and strong.

Doug have you ever tried having your router extend the cut into the inside corners of slots? The fit on your pieces is great in my opinion, but the inside corners on the slots need some prep. Short of going with a laser cutter ($$$$) I was wondering if you extended the cut into the corner if that would make a weak spot or if you had tried it? I have a lowrider CNC and do that on plywood a lot, but I've never tried anything on balsa with it and just thought I'd ask.

I do love the kit!

I agree, I either use Ultrakote Parklite or doculam.
