Airbrush is the plan, Alfredo...but had to cut the grass today...got a 1/2 acre of the stuff...not the smokin' kind.  This yard is kickin' my butt nowadays.  Soon will be covered in snoooowwwww.  Already is up on the mountain.

Also...to activate my airbrush...I gotta clean the work bench...this process gets more involved all the time.  Anything that I have to get off my pratt...is involved...and requires planning. Grin Grin Grin

Enjoying all builds!
white glue must be diluted to "almost milk" condition, let the ( already 150sanded) foam to absorb a generous amount and then apply the "pre wet" tissue section" before last diluted white glue layer dries off ( so inmediatly). Then , is important to go watching some tv, have dinner, go to sleep and dont even look the ongoing drying process!
Its important to let it dry naturally Smiley

I also wd like to take a look to the "atemps" that would be good to improve my advice.

I probably make it look easier than it really is...but its really quick once u get the trick at least.

Well , keep me informed!

any progress on that F6F?

wd enjoy to receive pics and comments in my watsapp 59898907134

Great Brad! And another peanut!
The progress may slow on the Bonanza for awhile. Life has again intervened. But this is the progress on the wing. I built in 3/32 washout at the tip, using 3/32, 1/16 and 1/32 shims where appropriate. One booboo placed an upper rib stick incorrectly, but it was easy to fix.

Great builds everyone!!  This cookup looks like fun.  I'm going to join in and build a Taylorcraft BC-65.  The plans are for a 20 inch span and I will scale it down to 13 inches as a Peanut.  This will be my first high wing plane  Smiley

Good approach Ian...thanks for the thought.  I considered that approach...but decided that if I was going to paint the wood...might as well paint the tissue...six of one, half dozen of the other...comes out the same.  I too have done the "sharpie trick."  Sharpie" and dope definitely don't like each other.  So there are pros and cons.

Thanks again for the ideas, Ian.  ANNie's gonna be a war-weary "haggard ol' girl" by time things are done with, splotches, dents, and stains.   This is supposed to be a WAR BIRD! Smiley

Neal, I understand the problem of the bones showing through the covering, and I am wondering if painting the structure before covering might make it less obtrusive. When I speak of painting, I mean watercolour paints, or sharpies, or felt markers. The weight of those colors would be minimal. I use sharpies to colour tires and struts, etc. with negligible weight gain.

Ok...ANNie...been workin' on covering the dreaded wing-root area...complicated by my working on an already joined fuselage and wing.  Shocked  It is very time consuming to do it this way...but the resultant product means..."ain't no gaps."  Look for the positive...Grin Grin Grin 

Hey, the rest is a piece o' cake!

Covered the cowling, cockpit area, and wheel pants in a darker grey...attempting to offset the "bright" wood underneath.

Ps...If you've never heard of or read about The Niihau Incident...look it up...check it out...great story.

Smiley I certainly wouldn't worry about that weight, Alf...because the aesthetics of your model more than offset anything else.  She really is a honey.  As a matter of fact, I look at those bones and think that if it were seriously enlarged...you'd have the makings of a terrific scale rc ship!  Crank in some dihedral and presto...you could fly her on 2 or 3 channels!  So she's a "big-boned girl," so what...she's still a beauty!

If one builds for serious free flight...imo...there go all those great aesthetics.  It's tough to build for both flight and display...requires some real sacrifices.  To attain both is to be a master modeler...imo. Wink

Your model is a beauty...you should build it to YOUR satisfaction...as you are doing. Smiley

Neal

Ps...I might add, there is so much about you model that really is intriguing...like the wing spar, ribs, leading and trailing edges...great stuff, Alf.

The first time I saw your model...that upper wing has a similar shape to a German DFW B1 from WW1...very striking...moth-like.  Nice work, Alf. Smiley

No...haven't seen that program...will have to look into it. Thanks.

AK that looks really cool.  Very nice woodwork on the fuselage and tail surfaces.  If you have a scale please post the weight of the bones.

Here's the boat anchor so far!
