Nope, Transavia (my employer, daughter company of KLM).

What glue do you guys use? The build manual instructs to use epoxy. The material seems very similar to Elapor of Multiplex, and Multiplex advises NOT to use epoxy but slow CA. Thick CA works excellent on the Multiplex models, anyone tried it on this material? I would like to use CA because it works easier, faster en is lighter.

Ben_E, the finish you got with vinyl is so good-looking!

You inspired me to try the same on my flyfly Mig-15, instead of glassing it....

Found some vinyl locally

There is not much gluing to do actually.
I have tried foam safe CA and that sucks.... I have used epoxy and it works well. The foam also handles regular CA.

Gluing the fuse together is impossible to do with CA, it's just too big. Wings and motor pods needs the strength that the epoxy gives in my opinion!

Multiplex says that on elapor CA (regular medium or slow, not foam safe) has a better bond than epoxy. The fuselage may in deed be a little big for CA drying time, but tail surfaces and engine pylons could easily be glued with slow CA.

One more question: anyone knows the function of the small slots in the foam of the stabilizers? (the small slot in the lower right corner in the picture) The slots look exactly the same as the slots in the wing where the carbon spars run through the wing. Would Ming have wanted a spar in the stabilizers at first? Would they be strong enough without spars? (I think they are)

if you are spraying directly to foam I would use a very light sanding
to break the glaze
The hardened shell is what I'm after. It seems light weight and durable.

I just ordered a set of:

Transavia.com Decal Sticker

So I should be on mine soon, unless the habu 32 gets here first I chose this scheme because is seem to be pretty easy. Just paint all white and put on stickers.

Rear section is polyglassed

the weight gain just under 2 oz , servo openings filled with
pink foam and filler . servos moved to the inside

very easy to do with great results

I really love the blue livery but it would really hard to paint all those lines and tones inside those blues.

*Ming, why don't you make stickers for almost the whole jet for blue livery since it has all those curves and lines. That would be SUPER easy for us to just stick on!
