HI Maurice, they are on my "to call" list, I'm sure they will order and you can get it soon, Thanks for the heads up. Your Whitley is beautiful, and entered 'If you know what I mean" I will be archiving all pictures that are posted on this thread for our Beacon Appreciation thread on the Beacon web site. We are working with our IT people to rebuild our site to have the capability to post pictures and comments and so that we may have a more direct link to communicate with you our loyal customers. Also check your PM's I have sent you a message, and check out my new all Foam-Tac built Fantasy WW1 Fighter, wood, MPF, foam, and bits and pieces found around my work bench.
Regards and Good Luck,

Foam Tac WW1 Fantasy Fighter

Hi Guys, Ok I know this is not a foamie but, it does have depron wing and tail, I built this using foam-Tac and the new Multi-Tac.It is a Fantasy WW1 fighter plane with hand carved pilot and rear gunner, no plans just this looks about right, anyway I hope you guys like it.
Eric.
BTW the rear gunner turns with the rudder...

Hey Maurice, Thank You. turning guns are very easy to do. after thinking about it for a while I came up with a simple solution. The gunner is glued directly to the servo arm.so when servo turns so does my rear gunner.

Hey Petey, thanks I just wanted to show that you can use Foam-Tac on other stuff besides foam, it's good for almost anything.

Foam coating

Eric,
Earlier in this post you mentioned a new product for applying a hard, smooth coating to foam. I have been searching for a product like this for quite some time and would be very interested to find out what it's called. I searched the Beacon website and was unable to find the product. Can you tell me what the product is called and where I can obtain it.
Thanks for your help,
Pepster
