I have also been thinking of making one some time ago. I'd say go for it! (If thats what your plan was)
Hanzie

Edit: No, wait, those had a tailwheel. Hmmmm....

Hanzie,

Don't want to clutter this thread with something non-related, so here is the last you may see of this here. A few hints to sweeten the pot. 15 had tail wheel, 17 had nose wheel, 21 was the pinnicle, but a bit ahead of where I am at.......... Look for a seperate thread at a web site near you soon!

THANKS Fred!!!...I should be 84 grams on 3S...At least I hope so!!!..I know that the plane looks a bit rough when going through the "body work" process...Since paint work is what I really enjoy doing I hope to do the T-45 justice!!!...

I can see right past the body work, after all our creations are all a mess of filler, colors, fuzz, and such during most of the build, until the bitter end! I am glad you like the painting. I don't, and that is why my F-84 Thunderjet is stalled at the moment. So close but so far. I don't even have my colors picked out.

So I am waiting to see what you are going to create here, and I am sure we will not be disappointed! Good luck! I know you are going 3 cell, and that was with a 3 blade, clipped GWS rotor, right?

That sure is a real pretty airplane there Mister! It even looks good without those fancy wing tip tanks, I'd say. It would look great in Silver, Green, Camo, or just about any color the Russians used back in the late 1940's and early 1950's. That should be an easy airplane to pick a paint scheme, and how hard are Red Stars to make decals for anyway.

The weighting fight will be so good! I bought a 4gr lighter battery from rclipos, 2s 325mah So it will be final weight: 84gr

Kevin,

If you want I can send a pvc canopy for you, I have left here at home. I made a pluga and have the vacuum forming machine here. Your jet definetely deserves it! Just let me know your address and I send it for you!

Thanks for the canopy offer Luis!!!...I would definately take you up on your offer and GLADLY pay for your trouble but there's just one thing---I'm thinking that I modified my plane so much with rounded turtledeck/nose that I'm afraid your canopy wouldn't fit...I would not like for you to go to all of the trouble of sending one if it won't fit...

Well---I'm to the point that I'm tired of filling/sanding/filling/sanding!!!..Time to get on with the paint...I plan on shooting a few light coats of primer, sanding between coats...This should expose any more flaws and help seal the foam...

I got more done on the T-45 tonight...Primed and ready for more filling/sanding etc......Ya gotta get it right or else every time you look at it you will wish that you did more to finish it...

I got the decals printed thanks to Fred B...!!!...I printed one set on clear decal paper and another on white backed decal paper...You need both to apply the decals over white and painted surfaces...

Shooting for a Sunday maiden but that will be pushing it...My 11th wedding anniversary is tomorrow so I'll probably not get much done......

I will coat the plane with flat white when all of the finishing work is done...I'll also paint the model with flat black and flat red where required...Flat finishes dry VERY quickly and allow for quick work...The entire plane will be clear coated with Krylon flat clear...

At this point I think we will not see any pictures of Kevin's build UNTIL it is done and ready to show off! I wouldn't because I will bet it is going to be a jaw dropper!
