Hostetler P-6E

Thought you all might like to follow along as I finish up this P-6E I picked up at Lebanon Swap meet 3 years ago.

This is strictly stand off scale so I'm not going crazy detailed just building a nice flyer.

Army Markings

Ran out of Black Trim sheet so I couldn't finish the U.S. on the bottom of the wing but was able to finish the ARMY.

Came out nicely

IN case you're all wondering...

I settled on an XYZ 50cc with RCexl ignition. right now all up weight is 22 lbs. looks like the CG is dead on with no added weight.
I'm waiting on my Biela 20x10 carbon Fiber 3 blade (Semi- Scale) also have a Xoar 22-10 2 blade coming for break in.

In case you're wondering, I chose this paint Scheme because EVERYONE does the Snow Owl Scheme from Selfridge Field 17th Pursuit Squadron, I chose to do one from the 94th Pursuit. I like the red and to tell you the truth I like the idea of representing the 94th pursuit squadron (Eddie Rickenbacker, Reed Chambers etc. etc.) Believe it or not after WW1 the 103rd (n124 Lafayette Escadrille) and the 94th (Hat in the Ring) were composited together and became the 94th and adopted the Indian head of the Lafayette Escadrille.

The Indian head was scanned in and retouched by my Girlfriend who is a graphic artist. Then I printed it on clear vinyl graphic sticker sheets

The standard Williams Bros. 1/5th scale Pilot fits this airplane perfectly
