Absolutely!  Cheesy  Just be careful not to use it all up in one go... always keep a little bit in reserve...!

I am working on the tissue filed for a 24" Ansaldo kit. The fuselage art was hand painted by Duke Horn of Dallas TX. I took his original work and tweaked and cajoled it into a print file using a combination of Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Working on the flight surfaces today.

Nice Puss Moth with obvious potential.

I need a break from the most tedious of tasks - 8 interplane struts - so time for the traditional 'throw it together' shot.
The 40" FK3 is bigger than I expected. This lot is 7oz so finished weight will be 8 -  8.5oz, including some tail weight, and that's about 3.5oz/sq ft.

At  8 1/2 ounces you won't even have to clear it with the CAA!

I hadn't  thought of that! In any case I reckon I could just about fit my 'operator ID' along the fuselage side.

That's light Bill!

I suppose you couldn't use invisible ink for the ID numbers - something activated by Ultra Voilet lamps, perhaps. Smiley

That sounds incredibly light for a 40" model, that's about the same as my 36" Cessna 170 !!!!. Have you lightened the structure or was it designed like that

Chris, it's a very simple model, all 1/8 or 3/32sq, good wood, no plywood, quite a lot of wire but mostly 18swg. There will be very little detailing. I have been caught out by the weight of the Redfin because the cg is way forward at the moment but the fuselage is long and it won't take much tailweight. I could have made a "Coates" tail end.

It looks great. Never mind the tail weight though- ditch the Redfin and convert it to rubber!

Go for it Jon - it seems to have been far too long since you've done a proper scale jobbie!  Got anything in mind...?  Grin

Re the Puss Moth's own thread, I did in fact start a 'research' one quite a while back, then did the design and got stuck into initial making, but (quite unusually for me) I then left it on the back-burner for a year or so before resuming just a few weeks ago.  Original thread here:  https://www.hippocketaeronautics.com/hpa_forum/index.php?topic=24108.0

Finished up the woodwork on a Model Craft P-47 today.  Built from an original 1940s kit, with some added infill, details and a 4-blade flying prop.  Just over 19" span, 22g as pictured.  Quite noseheavy with that big prop.

That is a nice looking structure - and the box art in the background captures the nostalgia element perfectly.

Thanks Tim and Wally - breaking out the tissue for it tomorrow.  In the meantime, flew my latest completion today.  Super Fike Embryo, from a Jim Longstreth plan out of the Dec 1995 Flying Models.  All went well, but stopped at about half turns as it was breezy and manned aircraft had us constrained to a corner of the field.

Still another nice flying model from your stable Mike. This is getting monotonous Smiley Very nice and I'm surprised at it's stability in roll with the small cranked tips - even for a high wing model.

That was a good flight for half turns!

Wrapped up construction and detailing on a Model Craft P-47 today - been working on this one since February.  Another flight sim skin printed tissue covering job, made more challenging by the portly fuselage.  Paid the price for tacking on details - it's 34g without motor (19.5" span, about 65 sq inches wing area). ~7g of that is prop and noseblock. It should still fly...
