I am starting my fuselage today. I want to go tail drager. The prop thrust, I am thinking of putting the prop almost fully above the wing. Is that bad?

Today I think I found my limit in building small models. I doubt I could go any smaller or more delicate than the Ikara Butterfly I put together this afternoon. I’m glad it’s simple as I’d have probably given up if it had taken any longer.

My admiration for those who build delicate pistachio and smaller models as well as indoor duration models has increased massively but I think I'll be sticking to slightly larger sized projects  Wink

That's nice.  What're the instructions for building the prop?

Beautiful bones Mike! Tail Heavy? with that art piece of a tail wheel Smiley Well it is a short nose.

Chris nice butterfly - it's a bit big though isn't it? Good to see you keeping the fingers active.

Hi Lurker, I'm not sure if you mean the prop on the Butterfly but if you do ... it's supplied built in the kit  Grin

I did.  I assumed it was a, "wet balsa round a tin can" and leave it in the airing cupboard for a week job.

The prop, prop hanger, and the Butterfly kit are all manufactured by Ikara. The light weight Ikara props come in a number of sizes and are sold by many indoor flying suppliers.

Finished covering the cowl on the Broussard, and pulled the tail group out of the blocks after shooting them with Krylon clear yesterday.  Still have to do the windows to finish up the fuselage.

Very crisp covering as usual Mike.

The masking tape in the first pic has me intrigued - I guess it's to help you control the overlaps - but how do you actually use it? I have read of it being laid as a border and then the tissue applied up to and just over it. Removing the tape then tears a fine border line in the tissue. However this doesn't seem to be what that first picture shows?

Thanks John.  I use the tape as a guide to trim the tissue after application.  Here's a pic of the tissue over the carb intake before trimming.  As on the T-28 the tissue joints fall on panel breaks, so I'll be able to camouflage them somewhat underneath the panel lines.

Great covering taking place here on your Broussard.

The set of laser cuts for the new sparrowhawk short kit has been rassled
into submission and appears ready for production.
Biggest issue came from the wing/fuselage mounting structure.
that took some codgitating (word) to build in hand so as not to interfere
with tissue covering.
