Hi everybody.

I'm building a pistachio-scale Lacey M-10. The plan is from an issue of Hannan's Peanuts & Pistachios.
My question is: do I cover the wing only on the top?
Or is it better for scaleappearence and flight characteristic to cover both sides of the wing?
On the plan there is no comment concerning the covering.

Greetings from Germany

Most people seem to only cover the top of the wing. I'm building an aeronica defender, well if I can ever get back to my building boards that is.

Built 8 Lacey P-Nuts and two 1" to 1' (20" WS). All were great flyers. The later ones would all do over 2 minutes indoors with high ceilings. Covered both sides of wing. Don't know about pistachio......... dumb question, is pistachio smaller than P-Nut? If smaller maybe better to cover only one side.

I have a question related to the covering of Lacey (independent of scale): what color should the model be? All the model interpretations use white, with red trim. However, I have only seen a couple of BW pictures of the original (easily found with Google), and the all show a quite dull base color, which makes me think if the color of the plane really was grey/silver (like the common aluminum dope). At least some pictures of known silver planes show quite (dull) white on BW pictures.

Then again, Lacey is so common model subject that someone would have made it in silver color already, if there was any reason to assume such color. But, where does the color scheme data originate? Except from Peck Polymers, Ron Williams?
