It did for me buddy. I couldn't get the hang angle needed that way. Look at the difference in the pics. The one on the right is the correct way.

Nice job Bill..........I'm still waiting for my kit to arrive..........must have taken a left turn some wear..............and I think that I will take a different approach to the build {as I did with the Scout} and that is to cover the parts prior to final assembly as I can see some tricky angles to get the iron into.
Keep up the good fight..................
Chris.............

This build shouldn't be taking this long but with some unexpected health issues I can only work on it a little at a time..but I can see the end is near so check back for up dates.
Chris :
You must have the same postal driver as me I swear he had it in the back of the truck for at least a week before he found it.

Started covering and wow there are a lot of sides to this one.
Chris:
Covering before assembly might be eraser. Showing us as you go pictures would be nice.

Ya Rich, Me and Chris are having a go at it and from the videos in the front of the thread I can't wait to take it to the field and show her off. I finished the decals today but the old leg won't let me do anymore today, Another thing I wish I could fix!
Always have my camera in my pocket. The decals really make her POP. Tomorrow is another day have a look see.

Never throw anything RC out

I had some old servo doors from a wing in the bone yard cut them down painted them, now just peel back some covering and epoxy them on and another job complete. YES yes I am a RC hoard-it.
