urethane over foam umx carbon cub

September 8, 2015 (1 min 55 sec)
the wing is actualy a layer of 1/16 sheet bottom 1/32 top and ribs in between. the tail feathers are 2 layers 1/32 balsa epoxied together with the grain 90 degrees . the foam was lightly wiped with finishing epoxy fine sanded then another coat of finishing epoxy with the excess wiped off . than a fine mist of house of kollor adhesion promoter then orion silver than the red using an infinity airbrush with a .6 needle . than a coat of two part clear urethane , wet sanded than carefully polished each part on my makita polishing wheel . i placed the polishing machine on the floor and held it between my knees then carefully polished each part. and yes it flies even better than stock . and came in at 4.25 oz. the balsa components added most of the weight not the paint.. thanks for looking
