nice mustang! hey Onega, when you say fully glassed, what exactly do you use? i have read threads where they use clear polyurathane and other things.
how does one "glass" a plane?????

I used 25gr/m2 glass cloth and Zpoxy resin (as seen in pic)
This is the first warbird I glassed, and i'm very happy with the results, but it
takes far more time to build it, so be patient. But what you get is a very strong plane!
A full glassing tutorial can be found on http://www.gws-fans.com/

My New GWS C47
5 Attachment(s)
Well I have to be honest I was not sure what to expect when I built the GWS C47 but I have to say it is one of the Best and easy to build kits I have built, I started out with the all silver version and as you can see I painted it amking it green and gray total build time was about 7 hours and If I had not been watching TV when I built it I think I could do it in like 4, I painted my plane with acrylic paint from Michaels craft store and applied it using my airbrush.

Another Corsair

Here is my Corsair just recently finished. It is named "Bubbles" after a young lady whom I used to date.

I have modified the battery compartment to conform to panel lines on the original Corsair.
