Telemaster 40 recover


I have an ancient Telemaster 40 that was for sale. It wasn't getting any serious interest. So I stripped it down of all of its monokote/econocote. Whatever it was it took about 15 hours to get to bare balsa. I used an Xacto, packing tape and Scotchbrite pads. Time consuming. No wonder it's a job most avoid. Hunting cool color schemes down. May just go with stock red and white. It was a Hobby Lobby plane. It has builder markings in it.

I got some red and white but I’m using the white on another project. I might have to order more white. Plane is in the dry attic. Parts in a Sterilite box.

Ok cool
How about Red and Silver?

I see a lot of Red/White in the foamy world. It's like it's their standard colors XD

3 of my foamy planes are Red/White but i have a Red/Silver micro 'Carbon Cub' that looks pretty slick

It's up to you, im not trying to tell you how to do your project

I like suggestions.

Saw attached looking for schemes. Would have to get a roll of light red or orange. Too bad I invested in Red. 5 meters of it.

Had the notion to cover with polyester dress lining and paint it. Bailed on that.
