That does look very nice. If VMC get them out soon I would not be surprised to see one entered in KS at FF Nats.

Andrew's tape technique but with thinned RC56 is my preference.  It actually draws itself in to the edge and dries clear in any case so glue smears are unlikely

Another impressive effort Andrew. A simple choice but so well done.

Hi Andrew,

I have just seen the Bird Dog on VMC website, it is down as 18” wingspan, is this correct?

Hi Klaus,

No, that is incorrect, it is 21" (535mm)

I will ask them to correct it, thanks for pointing it out...

Ordered.

As was some light grey tissue. The plan is to finish it off as a USAF O1.  Possibly a shark-mouth O1-E.  Not a scheme I'd have considered but for Pete F's shark-mouth A9.  See the attachment. And if the shark-mouth doesn't work out there are plenty of POG USAF O1-{x} variants to pick from.

Something to look forward to building come autumn / winter.
