Mini-Review

Skymaster 60 - Revised MK Kit


This will be a 2 part 'Mini-Review' of the latest build project. I've wanted an MK Skymaster 60 for many years. (1983? When MK advertised the Arrow and Skymaster on the same box cover).
Thanks to several members here on RCGroups, it finally came together and all the required accessories were able to be obtained. I'll mention the people involved at the end of Part 2. Just like the credits at the end of a good movie. (This is by no means saying this is a good movie , just some pictures of a rarely seen classic pattern plane.) (I never saw one in competition in the 80's...did you?)
I'm going to post pictures with captions on them. So there won't be any 'lead in paragraphs' to the processes. Part 1, 'The Build', took approx. 6 weeks (?) to complete. Part 2, 'The Finish of the Skymaster 60, will resume around March or April. Depending on the weather. I want to be shooting paint as soon as it warms up. And I have to finish up a few other projects that were put on the back burner for this build.
