Looks great. What did you do to colour it? Oracal? Miniwax + paint?

Thanks!! Fuse was coated with 3 coats of water based polyurethane, painted with Short Cuts white spray can paint from Hobby Lobby..
Wings are painted with Rustoleum "Artic Grey" plastics paint bought at Sutherlands, a Home Depot/Lowes like store.. And the yellow is a cut vinyl from Callie Graphics.. !!

Doug, are you going to do something military again with the 47? I like your style

Just got off the Windrider site, and have not been on it in some time...

Looks like Ming slipped a new model in under the radar~ That Bruce Lee looks FUN!

Well, looks like I' e changed my mind again. Sticking with military versions only. This one will be the People's Republic of South Korea Naval 737 Wedgetail.

The beginning has begun.....

Time to go to school fellas! Class is in session, lol. All modifications are in house. I will start with what the plane looks like now and take you back. I have incorporated the Double-slotted flaps system with leading edge slats.

I use a variety of hinges but I have chosen these because of the flexibility.

Does anyone know what the new American Airlines base color is or know of a color that matches it pretty close?

Here's a pic



Also, anyone know if Cali Graphics makes decals for it yet?

Thx in advance for any input

Doug's way has the flaps coming out and down. The way yours is done has a single fixed point so it'll just drop instead
