P-51


Progress on the Mustang.
Getting close to the maiden. A few things left to set-up and adjust.
5 lbs rtf...missed my target by 8 oz.
Going for the racing look with a small canopy and straight wing tips. Scale details will be added after the first flight.

Finish


Thanks for the nice comment!

Chrome Ultracote/Monocote. I had both and wanted test them on this build.

The Untracote is much easier to work with and has a more natural look (polished).

How happy is the Ultracote to form around compound curves?

With a bit more heat the Ultracote will form around curves very well.

I have used this covering on balsa/foam models (like the OV-10 in my blog) and it is consistantly easy to apply. Too much heat on blue foam and it will melt...do some testing first.
