Thanks for the pictures KMD,

Very nicely done on the wheel pant installation. This will definitely help me out.

The one time I didn't land on the nose, the wheels worked fine on the artificial turf Why is it they always have to dork directly on the nose when things go south?

Try as I might, I couldn't mix a shade of yellow that matched the original yellow very well. So I stopped trying...

For future reference, Yellow Sharpie permanent markers are a perfect match.

Now ya tell me I have yellow paint pens, and several kinds of acrylic yellow which I tried blending, but no yellow sharpies. I figured it would always look like there was a boo boo there if I tried to mate yellow to yellow.

I know from experience (don't ask) the yellow sharpie is a perfect match, the only problem is if it comes in contact with CA, it turns red (don't ask)!

Since I screwed it up on the first mx2, How should I apply the glue when attaching the top/bottom fusalage? I origianlly tried running a bead of glue along the vertical fuse and then sprayed kicker on the horizontal fuse, didnt work so well. Any suggestions?

Apply glue, attach pieces then spray kicker.

well yeah I know that. What I need help with is how/where/ how much glue to apply to what pieces. I have heard put a couple drops on each tab, but I was wondering what other methods are out there
