I really need to get started on my Wisp Monocoupe. Just need to finish off a couple of other projects first.

I've updated the manual for the Monocoupe to reflect some of the feedback I've gotten from some builders. Here's a link to the revised manual:

Zeke, I think I read somewhere that you will be at the JR Indoor in a few weeks. If so are you bringing the Monocoupes and Beavers? Keep a DH with my name on it and I'll see you there!

No, the Cessna is still in the works. It's the Fokker Eindecker. I hope to have it finished by this weekend.

Hey Zeke when will Jim get his Maule built? He's been now waiting for it for over a year! You meet up with him in Va. at the LCAA fly in a few months ago and said you were going to get together with him about getting it done. He's paid for it in full and wanted to have it done and you still haven't made it for him why???? I think you owe it to him to get it finished don't you think. He is waiting and is a little disappointed with you not keeping your end of the bargain. I would try at least try to contact him as he has with you and not hearing from you. You owe it to him to complete it. Hope you haven't forgotten him. Sorry for this rant but he's not a happy camper and I always get some bit of resentment about it.
I'm now starting to build my monocoupe and thanks for the up date instructions .I think I'll try the tissue work. PM me if you have any questions on Jim

There was a pm on the matter and still nothing. Many pm's ,e mails and even phone calls. Not trying to diss anyone here just want to know why it wasn't taken care of. I enjoyed talking with Zeke and buying from him, I have no problems getting what I order and his products are great and fun to make and fly. No harshness at all towards him.Just wish this would be taken care of that's all.

You can open the files in any program like Microsoft Paint and simply change the colors to whatever you want. You can mix and match the template files to create up to eight different combinations. The template files are laid out to be printed on 8-1/2"x11" paper with no scaling required.

The manual can be found here:

I have never printed on tissue paper. What paper do you use?

I use regular packing tissue available at local stores ... but beware that "printability" varies widely. If the tissue is too porous, it will bleed a lot of ink/toner onto the carrier sheet (that you need to run the tissue through the printer). The result will be that the graphic will be "sketchy".

Having said that, the best (!) tissue I've found (and I've sampled a lot of different brands) is that available at CVS during the Christmas season (not yet). Second to that is Celebrate It from Michael's.

I do it this way, starting at post #11.

You'll love it!
