Looks like a surefire winner, Dan!

Yup - go with that.  Yes, I used to take my toys to bed with me. Took a while to grow out of it so don't worry Don. Have you been test gliding her?

Just the traditional "chucks onto the bed" so far. Can't tell much unless something is SERIOUSLY amiss, but all looks ok.

Cheers,

Dan.

Just realised I haven't actually got a transport/storage box big enough to fit this. Could be some creative cardboard cutting coming up.

Cheers,

Dan.

A number of my boxes have come from Lakeland.  They are very sturdy and suitably large even though they have only contained a small item. Often with useful "packing".

Oooh! Might be worth pursuing... I work at a place that uses an awful lot of boxes, but none big enough for a 30" Moth...

Thanks! That's a very handy pic for documentation, too...

Cheers,

My pleasure Dan and congratulations on the very finely finished model.  A real stunner and I hope she flies as good as she looks.

Dan,
Maybe I missed this in the thread somewhere. What did you cover the wing and fuselage with? Is it chalked Esaki tissue or some other kind of colored tissue?
You mentioned that your models cannot be completely painted for your kit scale contests.

And...I am finishing up a Guillow’s Aeronca Champ with a Telco motor. I intend to fly it outdoor but suppose I could try it indoor as well.  What section should I post it in?

Hi Mike! Main finish is Silver Esaki tissue. This doesn't seem to be as dense/opaque as it used to be, but is still a lot better than grey tissue for representing a silver doped finish.

The red areas are sprayed Tamiya Acrylic. KS allows painted trim/markings without penalty. It's only a very light coat on the rear decking, which was covered in red tissue.

Take your pick as to where the Aeronca goes! Look forward to seeing it, wherever...

Cheers,

Dan.

In making up a transport/storage box, I am the only bloke in the world who could drop lid of said box through the tissue on the stbd upper wing...sigh.

An idiotic Dan.

Dan,
You know your’e in good company! Every one of us has dropped something on, poked fingers or other things through the tissue or you name it!  Cheesy
I’m sure you’ll have it repaired in no time.
Beautiful model by the way. Looking forward to seeing video of it flying.

"I'm bound to stick a finger through it or drop it before it's finished. I'm great at stuff like that..." A direct quote from an earlier post.

Just call me Nostradamus...

Self inflicted damage fixed. Storage box finished, so it should be safe from any more attacks of the clumsies…

Cheers!

So it is, and very nicely too!  Has potential for being banned, I would guess?

It's yet another beauty, Dan! I don't quite know what it is about your models but (as with all the best modellers) you can somehow tell who's made them.

Thanks all! Most kind...

I'm looking forward to some calm weather when I'm not at bloody work. At least my Club field is only 5 minutes up the road, so if conditions look promising, I can get there before quickly.

Cheers,

Dan.

Spent all of 5 minutes knocking up some very basic instruments. They do look a lot better than acres of bare wood, though!

Cheers,

Dan.

Aha!  The finishing touches make such a difference (to an already fine model)!
