RC painting project (WIP)

Applied the first coat of Tennessee Red on three planes this morning. The new spray gun worked great ! I'll post more pictures when they're completed.

  1. My Eyes...My Eyes...(squinting) - You're certainly not gonna lose sight of THAT up in the sky, ARE ya...?! 🙂 🙂

    • It's a nice color. When finished there will be white sunburst strips on the top of the wings with white flashes on the fuselage. Thanks Craig !

  2. Is that a Sig Astro Hawg? Lovely old airplane, mine is 22 years old and still flyable with a K&B 61 up front...

    • You're right Jaime. They seem to be popular. I don't know what will be used for power when they're finally finished and flying. Glad you like it. !

  3. Very cool Phil !

    I also occasionally tinker with scratch building electric RC planes. Hanging from the garage wall I have a scratch built WW1 Curtiss Jenny with an 88 inch wingspan. It's powered by an E-flight out runner 46. I still have to finish it up. In the small build pile of RC planes I have a 44 inch Sig "Smith Mini Plane" biplane to build, and a Dare Curtiss Jenny as well. I didn't know that there were RC flyers here too...
    Thanks for sharing this...

    • Good stuff Louis, interesting subjects. I don't fly RC, but have friends that do, and they occasionally employ my painting skills. I've done eight or so for the lads, over the years.
