Huey - how did you do the fuse sheeting? did you soak it in water first, then tape it on and let it dry, and then glue it? or did you glue it on when the wood was wet? What glue did you use? did you glue along all of the former and longeron edges?

Beautiful job, Huey. Liked your approach to the sheeting. Skye

I like your solid wing rib gussets and supports - I wish I had done that with all of my models. Pretty smooth fuse sheeting too, and great cowl blisters!

Nice bones.

Had some spare time to get something done. Sheeted the forward fuselage.

I guess I'm old school, I covered several full scale aircraft, love Randolf (dopes, Nitrate & butyrate). Have used Stits, and some of the new stuff. Prefer what's been around for 100 years.

As far as the finish, it turned out very good. Taunt, not a lot of wrinkles, has a rubbery texture. Nitrate would have a more of a plastic texture.

Spritzed with 90% thinned. After it shrank, applied 2 coats of 70% thinned on one side, have 3 coats on the other. Was going to add another coat to the other side. Warping is a problem. Nitrate does not do this. Pinned the item down to stop warping. Still a problem. Odd stuff. This stuff seems to bond with your skin cells. You need to was it off quickly.

Attached with 70% thinned.

How is it working out after drying?

Huey V77, Gumby has built something similar on our Aerodrome RC PT crop duster. Check it out in our hanger!

John, my friend is building a F11C2, 84". Maybe Gumbe would like to check out this engine?

Was reading about Ezedope, thought I'd try it. I don't know what its made from but its strange stuff. Used dope techniques, seems to work. At least the nitrate peals off your fingers, this stuff doesn't.

Now, that wasn't so bad was it Huey? (smile). They look PDG.

Those cowl "blisters" look GREAT!!

A labor of love ❤️!
