I have forgotten the steps I went through to setup my Youtube channel, but now I just drag and drop files into the Youtube upload page.

Youtube is better than dropbox because it is off of your hardrive for good, for free. I look at it as free storage more than anything else.

This guy has a good overview.

Yes, this flight with about 20% less area. No difference was apparent to me in handling characteristics, so more to come (off).

Yes, working on that now. I was thinking a splinter scheme but I couldn't settle on colors that I liked and were remotely prototypical. So now I'm onto a night-bomber scheme, black on the bottom and schwarzgrau overall on top with lichtblau 76 mottling, like attached on my BV 215.

Paint and detail complete


Still have to do markings, but they'll be just simple crosses.

Bottom is rattle-can flat black. Top is Testors Gunship Gray with Testors RLM76 light blue.
