Default Two thumbs up!

She looks great, pj!
Did you use iron on covering?

I always enjoy taking an ARF and personalizing it.

Now you'll stand out from the other Apprentices out there.

Please call me John. I came up w/ Max2112 when I thought you were all internet predators after me Lucky Charms!!

I used blued colored packing tape and black pin striping tape. I tried spray paint and the results were not what i wanted. And as for my plane looking in good shape i clipped a branch of a pine tree about 60 feet in the air found it on the ground with a busted cowl the rest of the plane body didnt have a scratch.

You gotta watch those pine trees....they move I swear!

I put packing tape along the LE of wing & tail feathers, it kinda protects them in minor crashes.

Any vids yet? Everyone like pics and vids!


have a good one
