Just do what I did and stay up late watching YouTube videos with your wallet on the computer desk. Listen to it whiz by the video camera!
It sounds better in person.

Around 3 am the only reasonable option is to buy it.
You will have all winter to build it. It's actually a very economical build if you chose the right components.
It looks very cool even when it isn't moving.

I eat glue
Just "stuck" mine together on the dining room table tonight and under normal room lighting the colour match of mine appears to be perfect, right from the painted parts to the covering. Might just say to heck with ripping the covering off for now and paint in RAF colours. Sure would be quicker.

It depends on the type of bulbs. Mine ranges from perfect to horrible as I take it from room to room :-) It always looks good in sunlight, which is most important anyway.

Being a professional photographer I know that depending on the material and the pigments used in some materials, you will never have a perfect match in all lighting conditions. In the good old days when we actually printed and processed colour photographs, we would balance the final print for what ever lighting conditions it would be displayed in. It can make a HUGE difference. Some fabrics when lit by flash, will totally change colour. Now that can really tick off brides when their wedding party dresses are different colours in outdoor photos than they are in indoor photos!

Does anyone have a spare belly scoop they want to sell?
I knew I should have added velcro to it.

On mine, I removed the wooden peg, installed a blind nut and I attach the scoop with an allen head screw inserted through the front of the scoop.

I bought one of these and started the building process. Hinges glued in for all but the flaps. The rudder seemed to need to be glued not quite all the way in to get full deflection. When the hinges were set all the way in the rudder barely moved. The vert. stab. "fairing" for the rudder seemed excessive and limited the rudder movement when the hinges were fully seated. Should be fine though.

That's the way it is on this P-51...I didn't fully seat the rudder hinges to get full deflection...but she flies fine.

Welp I'm finally putting mine back together after the crash due to tx batt failure. After tearing up the stock mounts a few times, I'm ready for retracts.

So if anyone has the e-flite 25-46 85° retracts for sale I'd like to buy them!
