LOTS Of excellent, easy-to-follow assembly photos. It is probably overkill, but way better than what I got in my first kit.

"Is the Golden Eagle available as a kit? I only see it as pre-assembled. I see the Snow Eagle as a kit, but not the Golden."

"I wouldn't mind paying a bit more for a pre-painted as I have little time for my airbrush these days and both those versions I mentioned above look great!"
.................................................. .................................................. ...

This is apparently the case. I just checked out their ebay site and it reads that the Golden Eagle is only available pre-assembled and is not available as a pre-painted kit.

You may want to send them an email to verify that the website is accurate.

I personally think that ALL Eagle types should be available as prepainted kits.

Glue over paint? No thanks. If you really lack artistic skills, just paint the wings a nice espresso or cocoa brown. Leave the tail and head white and paint it brown too. A yellow permanent marker will do the beak. Cost - under $5.

I have a degree in fine arts, so it's not a question of lacking skills but lacking the time to do a neat scheme. Besides, I really like what's available and mine would only be another copy of that.

I have just received the Flying Chinken (scaled down version of the eagle) and I am trying to decide on the glue to use for assembly.

The instructions for the eagle suggest hot glue, but since it is quite messy to use I was wondering if the GWS glue (contant cement) would work or if epoxy is an alternative.

Thanks

cochino7,
It is a special attempt to install the landing gears, and I love the idea!!!

Wind_of_Change,
Your video is superb!!! I am admiring my designed eagle can fly in the sky of snowy Alaskas.

SeniorSpan,
Thanks for sharing my eagle instruction manual with everyone.

JONBOYLEMON,
It is an excellent remodeling.

Once again, I'd like to thank everyone for your nice feedback. Actually I put the complete instruction manual of the EPP Eagle in my blog on 1/1/2008. Here is the link: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/member.php?u=24497
I hopt to provide the best service to everyone and please feel free to use it as a reference. If there are any questions or anything to improve, please let me know!!! Thanks.

Lee-
the Eagle is so light that painting of ANY kind is not going to be a problem. I posted earlier that i've reinforced the fuze with coroplast, added landing gear and feathers (quail if i remember correctly) and it jumps into the air in about six feet. i used hot glue to do the whole thing.

Flyparty-
thanks for the kudos, i am honored. please keep up the creativity! a ducted pterodactyl (pteroductyl?) perhaps?
