PZ Razor conversion


After spending an enormous amount of time on the cockpit and other projects I have finally gotten back to the Razor conversion. I filled in all the deep panel lines and rubbed the whole fuselage with smooth light weight spackle. I then coated the whole fuselage in acrylic concrete sealer. I will then spray the sandable primer grey and use Chart tape to make all the panel lines and then spray with the finish coat of Olive Drab.

Razorback


Nice work Adam,
Your Jug is looking good so far, can't wait to see the finished project. It's a shame that no one had came out with a Razorback version scince Eflite cancealed theirs. It looks as though you have a lot of projects to keep you busy this winter. Keep up the Great work,

Thanks Loyd. P-47 is still going on the bench. As usual I get sidetracked with other planes, but I keep pluggin along with the Jug. Right now, my hold up is a decent scale gun sight. I made two out of plastic dowel and wasn't satisfied with the results. The canopy is still not glued on.

Here is the last part, the bullet proof glass installed, I think I should have painted the frame a lighter color then black. Oh well, all that is left is to glue thehttps://static.rcgroups.net/forums/images/editor/attach.gif canopy and paint the plane and install the graphics that I have had for over a year.

Thanks Woody This is the Parkflyer Plastics kit. The Parkflyer kit is not perfect. Canopy panes are not symmetrical and the cockpit is not really a scale representation. The size of the pilots is good though, but being vacuum formed the detail gets lost and I had to spend extra time on the dremel to get the eyes and nose better. My next one will be using a 3D printer to make a scale pilot.

Made a little more progress today. Soon as the paint is really dry (few days) I will put the graphics on Hofer's kite.

Here is the wing going through the process, but this time I used a new product from 3M called patch plus to fill in the foam gator. It sticks like nails and is hard to sand so I usually thin it with water and dip my fingers in it and smooth it on the surface. Be careful to not leave any high spots or ridges as it will take forever to sand them down even with 320 grit paper. If you do your first coat with 3M Patch Plus do the second coat with regular Crawford's Light Weight spackle which sands easier. I then poly coat twice and then automotive prime and then final paint with military master Olive Drab.

Callie was kind enough to send me the second bottom wing roundel to complete the model
