Mode­lair­plane­ Makeover Magic

Electric Flight - - AIRMAIL -

With so many ex­cel­lent ARF projects avail­able to­day, it be­comes more dif­fi­cult to stand out from the rest when you bring your new air­plane to the fly­ing field. One way to re­ally make your new RC flier your own is to give it a makeover. We re­cently posted Michael York’s ar­ti­cle on how he made over his A-26 In­vader from Phoenix Model. Here are just a few of your com­ments.

Gerry Nel­son: That’s a great treat­ment. Such easy tech­niques re­ally do make the In­vader look like a dif­fer­ent air­plane.

Michael Mc­gre­gor: I saw a full-size A-26 a few years back at the EAA Air­ven­ture. I think the scale pro­pel­lers do a lot to make any scale model look more re­al­is­tic.

Char­lie Johnston: That A-26 looks great! Be­sides the new paint job, I am re­ally im­pressed that elec­tric power has be­come an ex­cel­lent way to power mul­ti­engine war­birds.

John Thomas: I have one of those ARFS, and I am go­ing to do a sim­i­lar makeover so that I can have a model of the air­plane my grand­fa­ther flew in the Korean War.
