RT Mig 15 Build

I finally got the Mig to a point where I wanted to take some pics of the "bare bones" stage of the build. Planking the fuse was a real PITA, but the end result was well worth the effort. I have just applied Minwax Sand and Seal to the fuse, once I sand it down again I will apply 3/4oz glass cloth and Minwax Polycrylic and sand again. I'll cover the wings and tail feathers with Coverite fabric. I'm going to use my Fathers Day present from my kid's, a new airbrush set up to paint it. I have not decided what type of paint to use yet so any advice on that would be helpfull. This is my first attempt at painting a bird. A big thanks to Mac and Bill over at Hodges Hobbies on the advice on the fuse glassing. I've installed an HET6904 fan with a 2W motor and a CC60 amp ESC. on three cell's it's pulling 464W on a fully charged pack. I'll post more as I progress on the build this week.

Regards,
Nut

Looks good, almost a shame to paint, I like the "woody" look you got going there.

Got done with her Friday afternoon. Hooked up my Watts Up meter and was very pleased with the results. I'm using a Flight Power 25C 3 cell 2500mah and here is what I got.

@12.6V: 577 watts
@12.3V: 546 watts
@11.6V: 518 watts
@10.8V: 502 watts

Based on my AUW of 2.875lbs it will be running between 190 watts per pound and 174.6 watts per pound.
Here are the pics. By the way, I got my graphics from Callie Graphics. She did a great job.

Best Regards,
Nut
