Jap tissue makes a very lightweight finish for these models. You just need to be careful on tough grass. I would go easy on any paint.

Thanks Ken, I may go that route too. Figured you would have something to say about the tank! Very Happy

I may go through and re-plumb it.

Well I did see the tank. I never was a fan of having a wedge with the pickup being so far outboard. If it works, terrific. If it was mine, it wouldn't work. That's just the kind of luck I seem to have. I don't know enough about the .010. I own one but never run it. I love the Pee Wee .020's.

It looks awesome Ron! You can basically fly that anywhere! Now that the pushrod is installed, does it still seem nose-heavy? What size pushrod wire did you use? I've always gone "over-kill" with my pushrods. What did you choose for lead-outs? They look like stranded-steel.. (.015"?) but I can't tell from the pics. They almost look like solids.. if not for the bellcrank terminations.

Is the wing all balsa? It appears that the leading-edge is made from 1/4" square-stock. Nice job of scaling!

I wondered about your tank's feed-line orientation.. but it might work fine. Only one way to tell! I'm really excited for a flight-report Ron! Sorry about all the questions.. but I just LOVE tiny models! This size model is something I could possibly fly here in my side yard. There's not quite enough room for anything bigger. What size/type/length lines do you intend to use?
