Agreed, it does look good, @chevyiron420. Once sealed & painted, bet it will look like a winner.

The joy of wen-mac/testors mounting. It seems better to me to make up your hardwoods an drill the mounting holes first. It seems that a width of 1.050 on the crutch will allow the mount hole to be drilled in the center of the 1/4 hardwood so they dont bust through the side like my first one did.Help needed with beginner baby ringmaster - Page 3 Ringma27

Good job @chevyiron420, you overcame an anomaly with the Wen Mac / Testor's rotomatic .049 in beam mounting. 👍 I think the beam mounting was more intended for their RTF planes. The bulkhead mount is normally resorted to by most, because of its ease. Huh...

I ended up building three of these. I guess I was having fun. I was fretting and stressing over paint so I just finished in poly. I really hate painting a model. any way its done for now. it took one nickel to balance.

Chevy,

They look great and will fly just fine, I believe. They'll also fly fine nose-heavy. Wait until you fly one as-built, and one balanced as desired. Then do a back to back comparison.

How are you attempting to apply the tissue?
There are several ways to stick it and seal it. The trick will be to find a way that works with your fuel-proofing. This may be as easy as cut the tissue dry to pattern, and glue down dry with a glue stick. Let the glue dry and fuel proof as you did the model. It may help to use popsicle sticks to make a pair of pinchers that let you hang the pattern from one end and drape into place. Dry mount the pattern to establish witness marks to aid in alignment.
