Has anyone calculated how much weight is added with the extensive painting?

LOTS Of excellent, easy-to-follow assembly photos. It is probably overkill, but way better than what I got in my first kit.

"Is the Golden Eagle available as a kit? I only see it as pre-assembled. I see the Snow Eagle as a kit, but not the Golden."

"I wouldn't mind paying a bit more for a pre-painted as I have little time for my airbrush these days and both those versions I mentioned above look great!"
.................................................. .................................................. ...

This is apparently the case. I just checked out their ebay site and it reads that the Golden Eagle is only available pre-assembled and is not available as a pre-painted kit.

You may want to send them an email to verify that the website is accurate.

I personally think that ALL Eagle types should be available as prepainted kits.

Glue over paint? No thanks. If you really lack artistic skills, just paint the wings a nice espresso or cocoa brown. Leave the tail and head white and paint it brown too. A yellow permanent marker will do the beak. Cost - under $5.

I have a degree in fine arts, so it's not a question of lacking skills but lacking the time to do a neat scheme. Besides, I really like what's available and mine would only be another copy of that.

I have just received the Flying Chinken (scaled down version of the eagle) and I am trying to decide on the glue to use for assembly.

The instructions for the eagle suggest hot glue, but since it is quite messy to use I was wondering if the GWS glue (contant cement) would work or if epoxy is an alternative.

Thanks

cochino7,
It is a special attempt to install the landing gears, and I love the idea!!!

Wind_of_Change,
Your video is superb!!! I am admiring my designed eagle can fly in the sky of snowy Alaskas.

SeniorSpan,
Thanks for sharing my eagle instruction manual with everyone.

JONBOYLEMON,
It is an excellent remodeling.

Lee-
the Eagle is so light that painting of ANY kind is not going to be a problem. I posted earlier that i've reinforced the fuze with coroplast, added landing gear and feathers (quail if i remember correctly) and it jumps into the air in about six feet. i used hot glue to do the whole thing.

Flyparty-
thanks for the kudos, i am honored. please keep up the creativity! a ducted pterodactyl (pteroductyl?) perhaps?
