This .049 Silver Lining thing is smaller than my .010 version of Rene's trimotor, and I'm thinking of building .020 and .010 versions.  How small can I make it...............

Just set up for perspective.  Done except for trim.  Thinking this should be the .020 and build up/down from there.

Looks right at home with those tri motors Bob…. Great way to display an engine…I think it would be a real handful even with an .010 if it were to try to fly…. Would be fun to try though!!! Mine’s about done too…. Just needs finishing touches…. Been sidetracked by nitro lately lol! …..I’ll post it on the other thread for too long Very Happy

Agreed, too hot to handle, but I would like to see Ken or Kim try.  Smile  I don't think the original was ever flown, could be wrong though.

More perspective.  Little even when compared with the Testor's Fly-ems.  

I could never hand trace those wing leading edge silver lines, so masking it is.  Still thinking hard about your stencils.  I like the idea of fogging them from 18 to 24 inches away, I would hold down with small washers, but wonder how wetting one and patting it dry then apply slighty moist and sticky to the wing would work.

I'm not a NASCAR fan, more like formular one but I always remember Richard Petty's comment "It's all ate up with engine" when commenting about his race car.  Applies to the S/L too.

You bet, I would vote for an experienced CL’r to give it a try…. If it ever got airborne it would be a rocket!!

Sure, nothing wrong to experiment with the stencils, You have a few to play with… If you try to hold it down with water you might add a few drops of liquid soap to help position and stick…. You can try it on a test board first… When the tissue starts drying it will shrink and wrinkle but can be carefully ironed flat again…The weight method is a little tedious but takes care of loose edges….

Thanks Chancey, but it looks a little like a flying pot belly next to those slender tri-motors.  Smile

Gives it a complex. Smile

I might make a major change to the original builders plans. Both upper and lower wings are 4" chords but the elevator adds width to the lower wing throwing everything out of proportion. So I'm thinking of adding ailerons and flaps fixed along the plane of the wing.  But I would love to droop the flaps like on the .020 Tri.

It's not really all that sparkley, the flash catches the aluminum paint and amplifies it.
