Check out either Worldtex or Solartex. They have a fabric-like texture that has a matte finish, and they come in many different colors.

Great work - I have really been enjoying your build thread.

I have a PSS sloper built from Paul Janssens plans that is a superb flyer. It is built fairly rugged to cope with the rough and tumble of slope soaring and it is great to see your scale model developing.

hello to all


today i Finished wiring the wing tanks(bidons) Yes! There will be lighting

in the pictures you can see that i created more openings for the inlet at the bottom of plain, was done by using thick drinking straws! to give more air to the front of the fan.
And i glued the wings and the main wings spar (boom of the TREX-450)

enjoy the pic's

Congratulations on the very nice build, you have done a fantastic job.

Firstly, on the decals - tricky. That is a very unique scheme and you will not find anything "off the shelf" I expect. It depends a bit on how much you want to spend. If you have access to a good printer you could have a go at making your own with decal paper. Alternatively, you could get some decals custom made for you by someone like Callie Graphics. Callie is a real peach - very helpful and skillful and reasonably priced. All you have to do is provide her with pics of what you want and scale info. Also, check with her to see what she has in stock as she is building up a huge library of graphics for a variety of models - much more than is shown on the website. Sometimes, I have finished off planes very cheaply just using decals she has readily available. Maybe get the model flying well before putting too much work into finishing it off??

On the painting front, if you are using Monokote, then Lustrekote is the paint to use. Have a hunt around for the nearest supplier:

GOOD LUCK!!
