Hi all,

Can anybody help me create these white lines (not sure what these are called, see pic below) for my hobbytopgun L39 90mm jet please… I have seen these on t45s.

I think you're referring to canopy explosive chords used to shatter the canopy in the event of an ejection, however, I don't think the L-39 used them. They had an auto release of the canopy hatch during ejection.
If you want to try this, I would try 1/32" white chart tape on the inside of the canopy

I used a silver Sharpie on a T-45. But the cockpit had the indentations.

Try the RBC kits website ... http://www.rbckits.com/shop/index.php?

I have built the F22 and it is an excellent flyer

Cheers

Glad to see that this resource is still growing and being used.

Here's a squadron emblem that I knocked up for the tail of my Balsacraft Blenheim. It's for XXV Fighter Squadron RAF. The original is a Corel Draw .cdr v15 vector file , but the uploader won;t accept that, so here are PNG and JPG bitmap included

I figured I'd post this question here...
I had the SkyMule out in the snow today and I noticed some of the wing decals starting to bubble and crack/peel where it got wet from snow. Does anyone have a good spray product that they use to seal decals and protect them from loosening? Something that can be used on EPO?


Thanks!

One product I use is Krylon clear water based in a spray can. Miniwax water based Polycrylic is also a good one, can or spray.
