Had a hard time finding decals for this specific bird, so I got some AT6 markers from Diamond Hobby, used the rondels, and some of the hull numbers, and it looks like absolutely no one's WW II mount. It's completely my own take, and it came out pretty good, post a snap as soon as my daughter gets home. Maidened it this morning, and while it DID fly ok (all the guts are from my terminally crashed/binned P39), it seemed overly twitchy even on low rates, C.G. was good, don't knnow why it was so sensitive, then the elevator control horn broke, and in she goes! Much to my amazement, no serious damage, just gotta epoxy the motor mount back in and re-glue the horn, and she's good-to-go...

I have three flights now with a new prop on my PC-21. It's a MAS S-2 Scimitar 7x5 two blade. Performs well and is very durable compared to the APC thin electric prop I started with. Still having lots of fun with this little plane
