Nice work, Jimmy.

See, sometimes spreading "chit" pays off. LOL

Hello!
These days had some problems with the masking tape,witch intend to use in overlaped-panel tehnique .
The soft glue from the tape remains on "chit" -ed surface
Wuh ! need some thinner and patience to remove it.
Lucky-ly only on small surface, on bottom of bellypan.
But... find the solution!
A first coat of paper low tack masking tape ( automotive-painting masking tape )and over it, a coat of vinyl masking tape, to protect against sanding's abrasive effect. The paper m.t. not leave glue on surface ... ha ha
First tests on bellypan.
For the moment filling the space with acrilic "chit" and having a grossier sanding.
All looks to be OK.
After this another coat of "coloured" ( with printer black ink ) acrilic "chit".
On wing have attched all the hatches ( white 0.15mm. plastic ).
Oh! ... and the MG barrels with their protecting plates!

As I promissed next wheek, more quality pics taken with a friend's Digi-cam.
Your's
JIMMY

Jimmy, I use electrical tape for overlapped panels. I've had no problems with it leaving any type of residue plus it is water proof if you need to wet sand over it. I generally use spot putty to build up the panel edges and wet sand down to the tape. Good luck with your Jug.

Hi Chad!
Today take off the paper+vinyl tape from the wing-fuse joint, after finishing the sand-over.
Looks OK.
There are still more places where I can test electrical tape
It's streching good and the courved lines can be followed.
Thank's for the tip!
I use waterbased acrilic filler.It's soft ,easy to dry-sand and is light.
I have two rolls of different type of electrical tape.Today will make a test!
Thank's for watching my P-47 thread
Your's
Jimmy

I just wanna report that I have a bird now! It's not the PT-40 as I reported before - the mail company lose it- Well, this one is a brazilian model called "pastinha". The closest translation to english is "little folder" because the model is totally covered by school folders plastic ( in portuguese folder = pasta ).
It's an ugly look and heavy but it flies gentle and have a nice gliding skills.

Comming soon it will flies! As soon I have some money (lots of money to me) purchase a radio.

Hugs to all!
Wil

Hello Wilian!
I'm glad to see you're glad!
A nice lookin' plane!
The material whitch is used for fuse and wing ( as I can see on closer detail pics ), here in Romania is called "coroplast".
In Romania ( and I'm sure all over ) are some dedicated clubs with "coroplast" wonder-making guys.
Had the oporunity to see some pieces-of-art having the main building material "coroplast".
You can take a look here:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=702765
If you search SPAD with google ,will find amazing things about how to build,repair, tehniques a.s.o. using coroplast as main building material ( and not only coroplast ).
http://www.coroplast.com/
Congratulations!
Your's
Jimmy
