Voodoo,

I have got the dark green version, but I have made some modifications to the visibility. For example yellow rudder tips and the two black and three white stripes on the wing. It should help some with the orientation I hope.

What paint/color did you use for the clear parts?

Hi Gene,

Totally agreed ! I did the same on Cox .049 and OS .15 engines 20 years ago.

voodoo,

I did use an acrylic type of paint called lefranc deco with brilliant shine. When dried up it looks very good. I also mixed in a little wood glue in the paint to get it to stick as a film to the body. It now has a pretty hard and smooth surface that is not so prone to getting those dings in.

There are all kinds of methods you can use to get a good paint job. Filling the pores with a mixture of wood puddy thinned with water will work. This requires a lot of sanding after it dries to smooth it out. Or you can mix 50/50 water based wood puddy powder with water based spackle powder. That also works. And it is a lot more work to fill in the pores before painting. Iv'e used both methods and I sometimes wonder if it's worth all of the time and trouble. You're going to fly it. From 50 feet away you can't tell if the pores have been filled or not. PLUS you'll be adding weight to the model which is not an advantage with electric powered planes. If you're going to build it for static display, go crazy with a fine paint job and all kinds of detail work, but for flying, that's a different story.

brushless upgrade


Been flying the P-38 with the stock BL 2208. Want to upgrade for more power. Any suggestions?

Contact Jeff at Headsuprc.com and tell him you want the speed setup!

Mine makes about 225 watts per side!

Say, I bought some very nice batteries from you!

The motors are about $15 or so, apiece, but work great-also, get some "rigid" GWS props and the others just become variable pitch propellers with this kind of power.

The model flies like it's on rails, too.

I'll see if I can find some old e mails with Jeff and if so, I'll post the specs!

2009 e mail:

Thanks for the report. I would have expected better performance with the 2410-12D, but I knew the 2409-12T was outstanding on that model...I had seen video of it.
I have an EMI P-38 that is very similar to the GWS-38, but it's been sitting in a corner for quite a while waiting for a power system. Maybe this will be a kick in the pants to get it done!
Thanks again!

I've flown the P-38 with 2409-12's and it is brutally fast. But also brutal on the power train/batteries. My current P-38 is kind of sitting around - waiting for the mojo to come back and finish the latest repairs on her.
