Question
How do you open the FlyZone Albatros

Mrs Santa brought me a FlyZone Albatross. I need to get inside the fuselage to reconnect a push rod. How do you open the fuselage. It looks to be glued near the tail feathers. Anybody know how to do this without damaging the model ??

Is there a better forum for this post ?? If so, moderator please move it.

TIA

The fuse is probably made of two foam halves glued together, so you'll just have to slice it open and glue it shut again. If you use a long, sharp blade and go slowly, you can usually just split the glue joint without cutting any foam.

Exactly how I opened up mine for a little repair work. Unfortunately, the decals will not survive well.
