If you're asking how you upload photos so it shows up as a thumbnail in the post and expands to full size when selected by the reader, the 'answer' is you don't - I presume the RCU software does the resizing.

All I've ever done is make sure the photos comply with the maximum file size limitation when uploading.

Sorry, you need to resize them in a image program outside of this forum and then once resized to a file size that the forum will accept then download it. A program like Paint Shop or some similar program that allows editing of image files.

Thanks so much. I will get right on that and get this thread off the right way. Anyway do you guys know any good color schemes. All i know right now is that it is a tribute to my dad in iraq and he was in the navy and he worked on a-7 corsairs. His sqwaudren had the rattle snake on the tail fin. Any way I dont want the cub yellow. thanks guys. If you want specs of my build please ask I will put them up. Thanks guys.

If you don't plan to enter any scale contests, you can do it any color you want ...A cub with A-7 markings would be very unique !! I did mine all white with a light blue lightning bolt..just different enough to be different.

Yea dont plane on being in a contest with this plane. This plane ius going as a gift to my dad in iraq. I want to do it like the a-7 corsair scheme. This plane has been a pain in the butt. When i first got the plane right out of the box it was missing like 4 things. And then it look like 2 months to get those parts in. So much trouble.

Guys,
Well today I made some headway. I had broken some of the front section of the fuse and had put a little tomuch glue. So I let it sit over night last night and glued it back today. It looks ok. Today I got some work down not that much but some. I finished the rudder pretty much. Just got to glue it all in. Will do that tomorrow. So tomorrows game plan will be to glue the rudder, try to work on the elevator. I think I will be able to do one side of the elevator and then glue it tuesday I hope. It is slowly looking like a cub. It is such a great plane. Well guys lets get this thread started. It is a little slow.

I dunno 'bout the Sig kit, but I built the seats for my 1/3 scale L-4 - took photos of a pristine L-4 and butchered wood 'til they looked about right.

As for pilot figures, I like these
