I got a second hand Dynam BF109G and after reading the Star of Africa on Joachim Marseille I decided to go with his desert scheme. I have to shave the bulges off the nose and wings. I will get decals from Callie Graphics as usual. She is a little rough so I will have to patch her up before paint. I plan on doing the usual LG rake mod and a few others.

I bought a few Millennium Parts to beefen up a slow stick kit I had. I decided to use this slow stick as an FPV rig to see if I am into it. Here is the build. Feel free to chime in. Below are a few pics for motivation.

Just got my first UMX plane today. The Jug in The Deacon paint scheme and she is a beauty. I don't plan on modding too much but most likely some weathering and scratch built detailing is in order.

I have an air frame laying around that I want to make a Razor Back. I just ordered the Razorback Conversion Kit from ParkFlyerPlastics.com. I appreciate any input and suggestions. I fell in love with two Conversions that fellow RCG member Cherubs 9 made. I will use CallieGraphics.com for the scheme....Continue Reading

I am working on converting this old PZ F4U-1A into a F4U-1 Bird Cage. I am using a few methods and parts to get the desired look. I will document my steps. Please feel free to ask questions and or make comments. So far I have used a mock engine, wheels, and prop from an Artech F6F Hellcat. I cut out the old engine to show the new one. I got the canopy from a Freewing SBD and I cut it up using a spare piece as a mock up before I make the final cuts on the piece I plan to keep. I will repaint the birdcage on the clear plastic to better match that of a F4U-1 . I will use the paint scheme that was in place until 1942 with the Navy Blue Gray. I bought a small model master bottle and painted up a 3x5 card. I took it down to the Home Depot so they could color match me a sample can. I plane to use the Bear on the plane and the Model Master on the Canopy....Continue Reading

I have a stock A1 Skyraider that I wanted to use as a test plane for some old weathering skills I had with static plastic models. I wanted to see how they would transfer over to foam warbirds. Any input is appreciated and encouraged. Warning, lots of pictures.

Hey guys. I got this Parkzone Stinson Reliant for about $20 bucks. Had some wear and tear on it but I knew she was fixable with some time and elbow grease. Here is her transformation. I am sanding and fixing instead of replacing.

I will cover mods, flights and crashes in this blog. Had this plane for 2 years and it has taken a lickin and it keeps on tickin. Below is my second attempt at flying an RC plane. Very nerve racking but it was such a rush. This was the birth of my addiction to rc planes.

Just wanted to document the mods I plan to do to my Dynam 109. Going for a loose version of Frans Stigler's 109 from A Higher Call.
