In hindsight, I could have sprayed a little red on the blisters on top of the white undercoat. The Tamiya Pearl White is pretty transparent and I think the red would have blushed through a little. I guess I still could..... Naaahh!
Mine will just get caressed adoringly. You guys have some great ideas, thanks for all the suggestions and comments!

Thanks Cousin Rubio! I tried to line up my stab with the top of the fuse/base of vertical fin. I thought Brian had said his elevator was 2" or 2 1/2" from the back of the fin, I put mine at 2".

Cousin Tom
who's hoping that Brian or Dutchy or someone else doesn't post "NOOOOOOOO!, why'd you put it there!"

Just put it somewhere behind the wing! It's really not that critical as long as it's within an inch or so of Tom's location. Dutchies is farther back, about 1.5" from the back of the fuse and mine is 2.5" from the back of the fuse. The important thing is to get the incidence right, make sure it's zero-zero!

Looks to be time to do the laundry Tom

Thanks Cousin Tom Brian,

I was going to mount it behind the wing.
Looks like I was heading in the right direction. I just cheked the incidence side to side and its 0/0. now if I canj ust get the tail the same way(0/0).

Rubio Ray
who always can find a way to screw things up.
I did fly the Cobra at my favorite spot this week

Thanks Brian you made a great plane

Did some panel lines tonight. I had some gas tank hatches and other lines on the wing, but I scrubbed them off, it was a bit much. They really show up on the white!

Tom,

That's gorgeous! Now you need to install the force field generator to keep from scuffing it up on landings!

Thanks guys, and thanks for the S.D. Cousin Rubio!
Mike, I will be spraying some clear force field on it this Sat. All my planes have scuffs on bottom, (some have scuffs on top too).
The first ones will be a sad thing though.
