Traplet has some amazing plans. I've got a 1/4 scale set of plans for a Gloster Gladiator, very sweet biplane fighter. 3 of them, named Faith, Hope, and Charity, were the sole defenders of Malta for a time.

Re: PICA 1/5th WACO

Back to work on the WACO, it's about 90% done! Pics soon, and hopefully by Christmas, she'll be done. We try to fly New Year's day, if at all possible, so would be great to get her out for a maiden flight!

Re: PICA 1/5th WACO

Took some time and got the black started on the cowl. After sanding and priming, did two thin coats of gloss black. I'll wet sand, do another coat, and then tape off all the valve blisters for the white highlights.

Re: PICA 1/5th WACO

Geez Dave, you are moving right along. I will hopefully have time to get back at my 1/5 Waco after the holidays. Looking forward to your pics. I have both wings framed up and starting on fuselage.

Re: PICA 1/5th WACO

Dave, is that paint fuelproof? If so, what make? I have had no luck finding truly fuelprrof paints now we've gone treehugger. Even the "Engine Paints" seem to soften and get tacky when exposed.

Re: PICA 1/5th WACO

It's basic Canadian Tire brand gloss black. Stupid cheap. Once it's all done, a coat of Americana Gloss clear-coat, and it's fuel proof. Works over latex, enamel, you name it. Michael's stocks it. I tried it on a Top Flite Spit, for nitro, left the exhaust goop on all season, never touched the paint. I've had it on several gassers since, same thing. Great stuff.

Thanks! I made a note of that should I ever need fuel proofer

Re: PICA 1/5th WACO

So far, it's worked well over all the paints we've tried, and vinyl decals as well as water slide decals.

Re: PICA 1/5th WACO

Starting to glue up fuselage on my 1/6 Waco kit. Planned on cutting off motor mounts and turning engine. Now seeing that if I do this I won't be able to remove the fuel tank.
How have others done this?
Was going to beef up the firewall to accept a motor mount but this blocks the fuel tank access hole.
Thoughts, suggestions?
