Yowzer! Looks great, but I'd hate to think of the masking job you'd have to do before painting that scheme...

After a light coat of WBPU I get pretty good results with a brush and some $0.44 WalMart Apple Barrel paints on my foamies.

Steve I'll be dropping a dime on some Depron as soon as you get your build thread up. Then I'll have to invest in a digital camera to post some shots.

Plans


Finally finished up the plans and have attached them below. These plans consist of two files--a scaled assembly drawing that shows how everything fits together (2 pages tiled), and a full scale tiled parts template (4x4 pages, for 16 pages total). The previews below show how everything should look when printed out and assembled. Each page has the drawing margins printed on it, so all you have to do is cut every other page on the margins, line up the edge with the margin on the adjacent page, and then tape it together.

Enjoy! And if you build one, post pictures of it!

Steve

Edit: For those that prefer non-tiled plans, I've posted another file below with the full size parts templates on a single ANSI E size sheet (34" x 44").

Edit #2: For those that are interested in a smaller version of this jet, plans are posted in post #1326 of this thread for a 22" span version intended for CD-ROM motors or other small brushless motors. Here's a link:

Blue Angels Decals


For those of you that want to duplicate the Blue Angels paint scheme, here are the decals I used. I had to reduce the resolution of these a bit to get them under the Ezone posting limit of 100 KB, but they should look OK when printed. If you'd like a higher resolution version, just PM me. These are GIF images, so just use any image editing program to size them so that they each fit on one 8.5" x 11" piece of paper, and then print them.

I'd be happy to host the full size Decal image on my website, if you like.

Just email it to me and I'll post a link immediately.

Build Thread or Build Instructions?


Steve,

Besides the plans themselves, are you going to do a separate build thread or set of build instructions? I've got my 6mm depron ready to go and the plans printed out, but it sure would be easier with an accompanying build thread.

Thanks.

A print scale would be a good idea too.... so we know we are printing it out proper too.

Cheers,

Hiya Steve,

A gazillion thanks. You just made my day. I'll be working on this one with Yeap immediately. He's really good at building. He's like a "GURU" to me.

Let's rock guys.

Best Regards,
Nithia

Everyone's welcome for the plans. I'm happy to give back to the community that taught me so much!

I've already received several requests for high resolution Blue Angels decals, so I just created a 300 dpi version (the previous version was 150 dpi) and posted it at the link below:

http://jetset44.rchomepage.com/Blue_...ls_300_dpi.zip

I also just finished putting together a mini-build thread and will post it shortly!

Sal--I'm working on getting a full-size PDF for you. My first attempts have been unsuccessful--the software won't cooperate... I'm sure there's a way, but I'll have to figure it out.

Steve
