sure. Can you google an image that would suit your color taste and email me the picture? It won't get done for SKSS though. I also need a drawing of the panel outline of your particular K8 including max. width and height. Or I can do the drawing from your K8 at your event if you can wait

you are right. For some reason I though it is a 1/3 scale model. Anyways, we still need to verify the outline of the panel.

Supplied pilot is just fine in my book also........with the rest of the scale inaccuracies blinging out the cockpit seems like a waste of time to me. Charge the batteries and just fly the dang thing!

For those who haven't seen this, and are interested in mods, here's the home page for C. Koch, Ka8 builder who has entries on the RC.Network.de. He has a lot of good pictures and explanations of his mods, including pictures of the wings stripped of covering, spoiler installs, and cockpit re-work with scale details. I don't have a direct link, but search: Christiankoch/modell..a8b/index.html It should go the site listings, and then punch the one that has his name with"translate".

I really don't like the new(2 years now?) photo viewing setup. Used to be you can view all the photos in the same thread all at once without go to the post first. If you see an interesting photo, jump to the post where the photo is located and read that post. Now you have to get to the particular post first to view the photos just in that post!

Sorry about the ranting.....

Brian, the technical term for this change is "deprovement". It's everywhere.
