Bummer... oh well, a quick trip to the grocery store will take care of that one.
Push the mesh out of the siv and squash it flat with some books over night,,,make a paper template behind the cowl and cut the mesh in one piece so the mesh lines match all the same or it will look bad,,i just used 10 min epoxy as its not easy to glue mesh.

I used hot glue. Works perfect. It will let go if you fly below 10 degrees F or so but most people don't do that anyway so it shouldn't matter :-)

Quick question guys.... when you installed your wings, did the trailing edge sit right down into the fuse nice and easy? On mine it seems that once I insert the dowels the wing sits up above the fuse over an inch and I feel it needs to be "forced" too much to get the screws installed.

I'm thinking about drilling the dowel holes out until the wing sits into the fuse easier.

Thanks.

They should sit down flush real nice and easy. I wonder why yours isn't doing that... something must be not quite right.

Ty's correct. You'll probably need to elongate the holes on the header in the fuselage.

The dowel holes were too tight in my model also, so I enlarged them slightly.

A month or two back a group of photographers was at the field, and this weekend a buddy told me about a pic they took of my tcraft that day on their site. I thought it was a pretty good shot, just before a three point touchdown....Check it out.

The E-Flite Taylorcraft 450 is a gorgeous aircraft and your picture, Mendo, is a really nice one. The looks of the TC is what caught my eye the first time I saw it and I had to own one. Here are a couple of my favorite pics of my TC. Looks just like the others pretty much, but I have recently added a couple custom decals to set mine apart. The 3rd pic shows the new decals.

Freddy, some very nice pics! The Taylorcraft logo on the tail is nice too. I have to point out that the pic taken of my tcraft was by a fellow who is a member of a local photography group that stopped by that day and all the credit is his. I was sent a link to it by another guy I fly with, I had no idea what pictures they took and this one is as he posted it.

I also am staggered that mine does not look as filthy as it is, it has not been wiped down for months, and spent all winter flying off a muddy soaking wet grass field. Its grimey to put it mildly.

The taylorcraft is also my favorite float plane. I snatched the first photo from a SD video so it is not as crisp.
