Thanks Mike,  Definitely want to get that one done, as a friend was drooling over the bones.   Grin  Caley

Nice Avenger Jim.

I have joined Pete and Don in surfing the FROG New Wave!  Grin Cool
Here's my Raven nearly ready to cover. Weight is 10.6g at the moment but I have a bit more sanding to do on the flying surfaces.

Froggie went a'courtin' and my tadpole has sprouted LEGS - nice LOOONG LEGS (after all, it's a HERON Grin)!  I could prolly fit a 6.75" air-mover on the schnoz (but I'll stick with a 6 incher).

All major construction is fini.  Just needs a front end and wheels.  I haven't quite decided how I' mount the wing - permanent or with magnets.  Some 18" models will fit into my "standard" box, but a removable wing will make transport a lot easier.

OK guys
Here are a cpl of shots of the almost completed FW-190.
It has been fun to stretch the envelope as to what can be done
using simple colored tissue. Leave it to the Germans to use most
of the colors in the spectrum.

Mike, if you don't mind revealing some secrets...  When you use this technique, do you have to match grains (IOW, does the grain of the top layer of tissue match the grain of the bottom layer) or does it really matter?  Does the top layer go on wet/damp, or do you rely on dope to snug things down?  Finally, one of the issues I've had when I've tried to use multi-layer tissue (e.g., applying trim, large numerals) is..."differential shrinking (??):"  The first layer of tissue (presumably shrunk and doped?) is "puckered" by the shrinking of the second layer of tissue when it shrinks.  You've clearly found a way around this...

Hi Word
The top (2nd layer) tissue is always dry.
When I apply tissue over tissue I water shrink base layer and apply 1 lt dope coat prior to applying the 2nd
different color tissue over the top. A small piece, I use thinner flowed thru the top tissue piece to adhere.
A large overlay piece I adhere the edges then water shrink. After the top tissue is tight I flow thinner
to attach the 2nd layer. Then one more lt dope coat over all.
Sometimes if I feel a pucker may occur I will apply a 2nd lt coat of dope to the underly area only to add adhesive effect
and hold the tissue tighter, lessening the pucker. If a pucker occurs I can usually water shrink both layers and eventually
they come out.

By the way, Mike's techniques work well when applying tissue lettering to a finished surface, i.e. black registration numbers, or things like US ARMY printed on the bottom of some of the WWII trainers.  Cutting them out, then using thinner through the letter onto a thin dope coating on the main tissue piece snuggles it down better than a decal in a lot of cases.  A coat of thin dope on top finishes things up and seals the edges.  I use black-chalked black Esaki for most of my lettering that's black.  I'll have a chance to practice on the Piper Cub I've been working on. . .

Elsewhere on these pages Caley confesses to building a P20 rubber model.

Out here on the Wet Coast, the BC Aces are busy doing likewise, so here's mine - they don't take long to build, these little guys!

John, Very nice.  Yes, they are quick to build, but for me, teaching them to fly is the hard part.  All my models give me fits in that regard.  Caley

I recently made a pledge to myself to not start any new planes until I've finished or officially abandoned the half built or more ones laying around. Here's the first 2 I've got completed.
One is a 70% Miss Canada, finished in the same general color scheme as my full size one.
The other is an enlarged Yellow Cab embryo. I scaled it up 150% and nicknamed it the "Big Yellow Taxi".

One model, a self designed cabin model, I've given up on. It just wasn't turning out right.

More as they get done.

Hehe, I've made the same resolve! I'm currently at 10 unfinished models  Shocked

Bargle,

Be careful.  "Big Yellow Taxi" might take away your old man.

Jon,

You only have 10 unfinished?  I have about 3 x that many, and some have been covered for years.  You'd think I should be able to finish them up when they're that close.  I have a covered West Wings Spitfire that's been patiently waiting for about 6 years, an SB2U Vindicator waiting for a canopy, prop, and markings, and a Miles Magister that's covered awaiting assembly.  I wanted to finish them this spring, but it seems there's lots else for me to do and I haven't advanced them much.  I did make a bomb, gun, and crew for the SB2U. . .

Let us know how the Miss Canada flies. I scaled the Miss Canada to a little smaller than yours, 22" maybe and checked against the embryo "box" and wing area. It's legal, the only mod I can see is making the windscreen a little steeper. But now the plan's been sitting for a couple of years so who knows when it will get built.
