Lockheed "Tee-33-Dee" for CEF Speed Contest

Post  roddie on Wed Mar 28, 2018 8:08 pm

I hadn't created a build-thread for this model.. so here it is.. Laughing It's actually been a few years in the making. I'll try to "summarize" with minimal photos..

"2016".. I established engine-mounting beams.. as an integral/major element of the fuselage.





"2017".. kitty-damage..



"2018".. repaired kitty-damage and devised a tricycle-gear where the model had originally been designed for a dolly..








Fast-forward to "today".. where I prepped for a coat of primer..



I used coffee-stirrer straws to mask the landing-gear struts.



.. seen here with a much-smaller "reed-valve class" CEF Speed-Contest model; "Flying Blind".. Today's weather here in Northern Rhode Island was mild enough to do some painting outdoors!

1st base color coat

Post  roddie on Sat Mar 31, 2018 2:53 pm

Beautiful early-Spring day in Northern Rhode Island! The temperature is 59 degrees F. and it's fairly calm. I sprayed my 1st base color coat on the Shooting-Star.  




This is planned to be a "Blue Angels" version. The yellow trim color will be brushed-on.




While this 1st coat is setting-up.. I'm prepping two other models for their 1st base color coats. The weather is forecast to be "paint-friendly" thru the Easter holiday.. so I'm trying to take advantage. This T33 is long-overdue for some attention.. so I gave it some. I'm not too concerned with "paint-weight".. as this model will be powered by a Cox Tee Dee .049 engine. I really like the Krylon #9144 "true-blue" color.




I plan to spray the T33's blue base-color "completely" today. Tomorrow will see the application of two different base-colors, to two different models; providing the weather holds! Happy Easter!!! Easter Bunny
