Jimmy, I got the 1/2" strapping tape from a surplus source. Not a commercial source. I have 3 or 4 rolls.

Very nice Ken. Did you install the aileron servo before adding the doublers?

Yes, actually even before adding the main fuselage upper.

Working on painting today.

Sweet. I'll be painting mine realistic as well. Either camo or metal with markings.

Good news. The Motors (BW 1700's) arrived at my post office this morning. They could be delivered today or tomorrow.

All Right! That is right on time.

Got the camo done and am shooting the lower side light grey. Just need to add panel lines after that and she'll be ready to give all nine yards.

P-64 in camo


Here is a shot of the camo scheme on the P-64.

I am not quite done putting the panel lines on and still need the star insignia. I will make those a water slide decals.

Also included a picture of control horn production.

Ken, that is awesome! Waiting for a maiden report is killing me!

When do you think you'll try to get a flight in? Very anxious to hear how she flies.

Jimmy, I will not get to fly her before Sunday.

On the kits. The hope was to get two kits per sheet, but with the added KF step and doublers looks like we will only get one per sheet.

Here is the current sheet layout. I will also do an assembly guide similar to what I did for the Sea BB.

Jordon,
How did the bandsawed crepe streamers work out?

Don,

Steamers done! I cut 2 rolls of white and 2 rolls of yellow. They cut easily but tended to pull into the blade just enough to get my attention. I now have 4 rolls of 1” wide white streamers and 4 rolls of 1” yellow. We can all use the same colors or we can each get our own color. The stuff is so cheap and easy to do that it will be great to have a bunch on hand.

Jordon
