Lol she realy humms neon ,great video and i thought you were going to yank that big bush out by the roots when you opened her up. lmao I like the turret and cowls also ,iam waiting for next winter to do all the scale things to my solent as now its time to fly. Now i want to see your maiden as much as mine. joe
Joe, Thanks for compliments. I am not too concerned about the power I am getting now. Well within what I need. If you ever want to try a good inexpensive motor try the HK's Hextronic DT-750's. Around the $10 price plus ship. I have about 15 of these monsters.
I think I will fairly say 2 weeks to get my trials in on Emily. Got a lot of painting to do. Panel lines and some shading. 2 torpedos under the wings also. If I can make or find the guns I will put some in the turret and blisters. I change my mind about doin hull cutouts for the blisters. Jus flush mounting them.
Have a good day,
I am closing in slowly on the finish graphics. These last details take some time. I hope I can get it photo ready soon. It is really coming to life now. You will see when it is finally painted.
I'll tell you what. If I had the room here in my house to build it I would. It is such a well designed and attractive aircraft. Very interesting lines. It would not be hard for me to make it either. I just like planes that are not run of the mill Arfs and kits.
Thanks for heads up.
You know, I love most all the Jap planes. I have a few in my collection. I like my scratch Ki45 Toryu Nick about the best. I just wish I could make them all. I have about 100 books on them. I am equiped with info, thanks. Very nice offer. Just do not have the space. I have 35 individual flying planes so far and another dozen here and there in all stages. My next plane is already booked for next winter. I need some WWI planes so I am going to scratch an Aviatik Berg D-1 maybe 55 -60 inch span. I am now going to my Skunk-cave to draw a few lines in the next 2 hours on Emily.
Thank You Xmech,
The finish is taking much more time than I expected. I am patitient and will do it anyhow. I am drawing in panel lines and it is a long tedious job. My problem is the pens are skipping at times. I am now on day 4 drawing. I have top and bottom outer wings to do and center wing bottom with engine cowlings. It is necessary to do or I will just have another ordinary run of the mill airplane with dull panels and walls of green paint up close. The lines have a very pleasing effect on the eyes.
No i have 5 degrees of positive on the wing , i was running my 2- 3 cell 3200 lipo batteries in parallel . My motors are 7.4 max volts ,i was running parallel 11.1 volts divided by four motors is 2.775 volts per motor. NOW i will run my batteries in series so 22.2 volts divided by four is 5.55 volts per motor giving me almost 3 times more power . lol my bad ,like i said thats why i came here to learn more about electrict planes. It took me a hole day of changing props and watt meters and going through other solent builds before i figured it out but i have got it now and just like neons trying to get her to fly. joe
Glad you like it. It is certainly an eye catcher when shown with a person holding her. It gives it size perspective.I will say also check out the Solent built by Joe. His is just as nice also. You surely will like that one very much too. If you have not done so, go to my build log and get the rest of the story also.
