Aggressor Viper

Some pix of my Aggressor. Scanned and printed decals from a set of 1/48 scale decals. She is powered by a Don's Wicked motor and 4s system. Fiberglassed as well.

That's BEAUTIFUL!! I flew block 50's from 2008-2011 at Misawa. I have "W W" decals ready to go, just need to get motivated to build another one. That aggressor scheme looks killer, no pun intended!

What paint method/type did you use?

Thanks! Retired back in '12 as a Crew Dawg. I work for Lockheed on the F-22 now but the Viper is my first love!

After glassing, I used high-fill automotive primer to fill the weave - that is the grey color. I then airbrushed the blue colors using Model Master paints. Finally, I brushed on some Future floor finish before applying decals and sealed with flat clear. Damn thing is a rocket!

Hey Vipercheif, that last pic (before paint) appears to show that your tailerons are not statically balanced. Perhaps you've done this since that pic was taken, but if not I would recommend it. Especially if you're bird is fast. Takes a lot of stress off the servo.

Just my $0.02

Looks great though !

The proper CG is right at the front of the cheater hole opening. Even on my hopped up version, that is the CG location I used and it worked out fine.
