Using Paul's excellent graphics ( http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1595126 ), here's what I'm thinking for a color scheme. The numbers are purely fictional, as I don't know the marking protocol.

Here's a quick and dirty color mock up... the tail group may look better with the orange and black reversed. (the yellow in these iPhone pictures is really orange).

Anyone else started theirs yet?

Here is an extensive article on registration numbers. It lays out the rules for aircraft numbering as they evolved over the years. One important takeaway is the common practise of exceptions or deviations.

What’s in an N-Number?

I have to admit it's a long, but a pretty interesting read.

Very interesting - thanks, Ray. Makes me not worry about having "correct" numbers.

I really like the color scheme you've chosen; very Golden Age.

Zeke,

When will the Assembly Manual be posted on your website (or do I have a problem with Firefox/Internet Explorer)?

Has anyone been able to download the manual from here http://www.parkscalemodels.com/shop/item.aspx?itemid=76 ?

(yes, Paul's excellent Beta build thread and the great engineering of the model almost negate the need for a manual....).

Sorry Gene...I've had so much going on that I haven't finished up the last few things on the manual. I did a little this morning and will try my best to get it finished up in the next couple of days.

Still no assembly manual? I guess I'll find out what I did wrong after I have it completed. I think I used one set of magnets to many on the slide out tray. I noticed after the fact that it looks like a dowel or something goes in the rear holes instead of a set of magnets. That would explain why I'm short two magnets for the control rod hookup. Not a big deal but an assembly manual would have made it clearer.

The rear hole is for magnets (my kit had the required number). I hope you've seen Paul's excellent thread here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...1595126&page=2. Specifically, look at post #17

Yes...however, I've given up on seeing the manual. Paul's thread, however, addresses almost everything, but it would have been nice, for example, to have a diagram for the gear wire.

The manual should be done shortly...I only have a few last things to do on it. I've had so much family stuff over the last few months that has consumed almost all of my free time. I wish Park Scale Models could be my full time job, but unfortunately it's not. I have a regular full time job, a family and Park Scale Models. Family is always first and foremost in my life. I put almost all of my available free time into Park Scale Models, but I'm only one guy and I'm doing it all myself.

I have all of the assembly illustrations and instructions done. All that remains is the final notes for finishing and flying.

You are correct James, the rear hole is for a short piece of dowel.

I haven't been on RCGroups much over the last several months, but anyone can shoot me any email if they have any questions about anything.

Of course! I appreciate the great work that you do and hope you can find the "free" time to keep coming out with other masterpieces.

So the fuselage piece holds the dowel and the slide in tray fits over it? Pretty slick way to secure the tray.
