Clean first then lightly sand off plastic gloss from gluing area then glue. If you don't want to mark up servo you can use heat shrink tubing around servo case then clean and scuff the heat shrink. I've done it both ways.

Thanks. I'll give that a try. I'll just sand the servo. Thanks again!

Gene, make sure you clean the molding residue off plastic first. Otherwise you will mix it into the sanded surface. Probably would not make a difference but better safe than sorry.

Just a little update, I made the flags for just behind the cockpit windows and I redid the cockpit windows as well. They aren't perfect, but better than the stock decals.
Just waiting on electronic components for the lighting and will soon build a test stand for the engines.
Its getting there slowly!

If I was to assume, and we all know how that will go, the wire for the aileron servo will have to go through the a hole that I'll have to cut in the engine pylon?? Is that how everyone has accomplished this task? Thanks

Yes that is correct. Some have notched and some have drilled a full hole.

Thanks. It's sad to get old. When I was young I wouldn't hesitate to cut into something. Now am afraid. it's nice to have guidance from all of you. Thanks.

Are you guys using epoxy to glue the nacelles in place or hot glue? I do have my flap and aileron servo wires going through the nacelle. Had to reroute the one wire because the extension connection would have landed right on the pylon. Please let me know what you think or what you may see that I have messed up. Thanks

epoxy doesn't stick well to this foam , the nacelle on these
wings are part of the structure - when my wing failed it was
at the nacelle. also hot glue not on structural parts.
Gorilla glue, foam tact, hobby king sells a good glue

Well here is the top of the right wing finished. Getting ready to drill a 4mm hole in the gear to replace the pin.

Nice!

I think I'll just go with outboard flaps, too. What did you use for the spoilers? How will you actuate them?

Thanks. This is my first foam/modification I've done in my 30 years of rc, so I went with just the outboards for now, which has been a challenge. The spoilers are glued. Maybe next plane I'll make the spoilers operational with inboard flaps as well. Surprisingly I did a much better job on cutting the other flap so I hope it will go much easier. On the spoilers I used 1/8 inch balsa sealed with baby powder and WBPU
