Starmax 63" P-51 "Gunfighter": The Tail Feathers.

As large as the elevator is on the Gunfighter, it was way to flimsy for me, so I've put a 0.325 X 0.125 X 19 5/8" Carbon Fiber spar in it. The spar made a huge difference in the flex, in fact there is none now. I also re-hinged using the Super hinges from HK.

I also tried some Rust-Oleum Ultra Cover Hunt Club Green satin paint, but it's a bit darker then the Gunfighter green, so I'll do some mix & match with Testors and see if I can come up with a closer match.

UP-DATE 4/25/2011:
After numerous attempts at finding an acceptable paint match for the "Gunfighter" green, I finally came up with a perfect match. A 1:1 mix with Testors MM Medium Green #FS34102 and MM Olive Drab #FS34087 will produce an exact match. Then to match the sheen of the factory green I applied a coat of Testors Crystal Clear Satin.

To finish off the elevator I applied Oracel 651 vinyl strips for the invasion stripes.
