Great news Nut! I know it will wind up better than before and please remaiden at some place that does not have wire cables or swamp.

Andy,
Sorry to hear about yours, it was a beautiful piece of work and flew as well as it looked. Looking forward to your next build.

Yeah guys the more I inspected my T-38 after it took a tour of the enchanted forest I decided I could better use the equipment in another project.

I will be keeping track of Brent's bird and all the grand kids that are born on the other thread though
Falcon I always hate to hear that but totally understand it. I hope you start he Typhoon thread real soon. I am ready for another wild ride.

What's this other project? Saw a couple people mention another thread but looking in this forum, I couldn't figure out which one.

yeah, i got the stabs off, and stripped all the paint off the fuse. i was taking decals off, when i noticed the paint was peeling off when you got underneath it. so, i proceeded to peel all the paint off lol. got pretty much all of it without much damage at all. not sure why the paint didnt stick. weird. so anywho, the plan is to have it all repaired before christmas vacation so we can go fly this puppy. i might need you to mail that motor back to ejf for me eh.

it has some rattle can on it, probably why. another problem was that i wiped it down with IPA and probably didnt let it completely flash before i started shooting. as soon as it looked dry i started, because i was in a hurry. i dont want to add any more primer, thats 2lbs more weight on a model this size.

i used a epoxy based chemical proof paint for the top coat, its a deft product
