The underside shows the built-in left aileron deflection. For low wing war birds like this, this (or a drag flap) is essential to keep the plane from spiralling to the left.

This dive bomber is built for rubber powered flying and came in at a reasonable 71g, without rubber.

I covered the model with domestic green tissue. Before applying the tissue, I chalked the underside with dark gray. This made the green more drab, and more opaque.

This is a Dumas kit 315 Aichi Type 99 "Val". JAMES could you please add this aircraft type. I built the wings with removable outer panels. Here the bottom is tissue covered but not shrunken.

Pop off wheel pants in place. I attached them also with short lengths of thread so I don't forget to pick them up from the grass.

The wheel pants are held in place by magnets. during landing, they 'pop' off and are laying next to the plane.

You think I would have learned by now. I think this one could have used more dihedral also.
