I glassed a Fly Fly f-86 90mm foam jet with minwax and it took me only an evening to do the entire plane.....did 3 coats of minwax.
I have finishing resin for a different very large project that needs as much strength as possible out of the glassing as the wings for this thing are holding a ton of weight all the way out at the tips(rotatable power systems).....think v-22 for weight at tips, just its not a v22 I'm making.....using ducted fan type setups

An update on the ESM quality debate, I lost my Sea Fury due to a failed throttle servo and messing up the subsequent emergency landing
So i bought another from the same shop (they have great service) got it home and unpacked it and found a few quality issues, one wingtip was bent and the covering was creased, the edge of the centre section had a similar fault
Straight back to the shop i went and exchanged it for a Top Flite P40, now this has not completely put me off ESM planes, in fact i would still consider another one.
However it does confirm to me that quality controll at the factory is not a high priorty

I know this is an old posting, but I got to say, I have had the Hanger 9 B25 with 6s, 10,000 amp and sound system came out to 21pounds!!! And was still a great flying airplane.
But as one of the posters stated, it starts to look like crap quick, and thats how I feel about my Top Flite modles.
I have 2 Top Flite Gaints (P51, and P40 lost my P47 last year) and while I love them, I really think that ESM is a great buy! My p51 has 3 years on her and looks like she is very battle scard, and I hate how the covering wrinkels at an event.
But I think I will fiberglass it this winter, so it will be like haveing a new bird.
Im currently building the ESM B25 with 2 ASP 180 4c converted to gas, while I know this is a much bigger bird, I would have to say it builds like any TF I have worked on and the hardward is not all that bad. Yes it is taking me 2x as long to build vs a TF but I think it will look better 2 X as long.
Im looking for a new 50cc corsair, and while I love the Hanger 9 corsair, Im scared of it being so soft like my other hanger 9 products. And the TF price is getting very high these days.
