RBC Huck is Painted.. what do you think

ok not far to go now... the canopy and rear abs parts need to be painted.. ailerons and elevators need to be attatched and then all gear installed.. This is my first ever built up kit so my covering job is a little rougher than you pro's although it doesn;t look to bad.. AUW is at 346 grams.I plan on painting the canopy a light tinted blue as well.. i did it on my spit and it looked great. Hope you like. (btw my KC f-18 is half done after 2 hours of work.. so much easier than this.. i think i mixed up my constrction order..lol

thanks guys, ok the camo was done with an airbrush.. Started with my lighter colours, light sea blue underneath, medium sky grey onall top surfaces and then just did all tha malting with dark/kahki green. I'm going to leave the nose, I'll add a red or orange band around it but i figured that these would have beeen produced towards the end of the war things were tight and paintjobs would have been anything but perfect.. but i wil straighten it up a little bit..

Power plant will be mf480, mega 16/15/4, jeti 40amp, micro servos, micro rx and either 12 cp1300's or 12 faup 1950s.

Jeremy,
Very well..
Looking like 1945 and a half.(sprayed by drunk personell)Not you of course. But in the end of the war that was the order of the
day..
Check your oxygen mask, personell weapon..and fly...
Remember endurance (4-5 mins)

Great job on the Huck, and good luck with the maiden. I'll be/v interested to hear how you got on with the faup 1950's. These are the cells I am considering using in my Yak23, but I've heard they have a shot life span!
Can yourself or anyone else comment on this?

I'm not sure sorry... this will be the first time i try them.. I'm also thinking of trying the mega /2T as well.. should be able to lower cells to about 8 instead of 12 with the 3T saving a bit of weight.

I was going to try a 2T in my next Huck for that same reason Jermey, but then had to borrow the 2T for my ME. This thing on 8 Cells and 2T would be a rocket. Although the pitchup could be worse cause sometimes my 12 cells were the only thing holding the nose down.
