I went to Banana Hobbys parts section. They sell an F-35 Thunderbird model. Just so happens the $6 decal set had a flag panel that was the perfect size. Wa-laa... Flag Panel

Was the very last thing I was doing late on a Sunday night and I guess being tired didn't help even managed to break all 5 blades off the minifan was pretty lucky in the end as there was enough off my finger still attached so they didn't have to cut the end off even managed to break the end of the bone as well don't ever say I do things in halves

Worst part was when the Doc removed half the nail and had the cut and stitch the quick underneath, then put the nail back on, don't really see the point seeing a I'm gonna lose it anyway Once the anesthetic wore off I discovered a level of pain I never knew existed ....instead of surgery, next time might just reach for the foam safe and kicker
I don't know when will pilots learn not to stick their hands or fingers into moving props or fans? I still see on regular basis people starting 50+cc models with no restrains and trusting their idles, total madness! There is a "LAW" you don't touch primed prop or fan, it's simple as that! you always use stick, fingers don't grow back, Joe.

LOL....ooohhhh no you don't....and nor do you want to but thanks all the same

Actually it seems to be healing along nicely now I got the stitches out on wednesday and so far so good. Even had the confidence to start building my little GWS P-40, got most of it done however Z-bending the pushrods and tightening their little clevises is a no no as I don't quite have full movement and strength back....but I will

F100 FLYFLY Stab ARCTIC Version

Hello

Some vues of the Stab H and V (F100 ARCTIC Version - FW 239)

On 7 August 1959, two F-100Fs became the first-ever jet fighters to fly over the North Pole.

MADISONMaster, Is your sabre epo or EPS? love the paint work.

I've just started spraying the saber f-86 and I've just worked out how difficult painting is

Anybody have some links or suggestions for a paint scheme? Keep in mind my airbrush is on the fritz (I think its the compressor) Mine is just about ready to paint, glassed and dressed in primer
Thanks!

Yesterday I finnally got everything on good shape for flight.

Good weather good wind everything correct on the plane and radio program on well done.

Only in the F-100 I made 5, 4,5 min, flights, beautifull smooth and very good handing.

The langing with hi nose is great and the eletric retracts are great too, doing their jobs.

Great sunday

Did you fill the lines with anything or just paint straight over the existing paint?

F100 FLYFLY : new location for the ESC ; easier installation and a good cable access

Hello all

Some views of the new location of the ESC and of the EDF in place.
The new location of the esc in front of the EDF got to an easier installation and a good cable access (which will be shorter)

lipoflyer :
For finishing, filling the lines with filler, sanding, 25 g/m2 fiber with PU finish , PU finish , acrylic painting, sanding, paint before finishing, making lines graving (with a pen that does not write) and finishing paint ; If the result is not good, we restart with the acrylic, sanding ....Much time !!

That looks like the best location for that fan, I could've kept mine simple and moved it back like you did and not cut into the foam for the lip

I tried to fly mine the intake from the fuse and it was a dog...
