    recovered some of the lost photobucket images and I am just re-posting those. This is the Cherokee I built referenced in the title of this thread so I thought I would replace them

    the wing struts are fitted but wont be glued in until after the painting is done..the canopyhas been masked and attached with CYA and white glue.

    The paint goes on tomorrow depending on the weather

    a nice red base color... we'll let this dry for a day then mask and paint the black accents. After that the fun begins with the pinstripe activity

    this just might work out..

    this is pretty much the final outcome. I still need to paint the accents onto the spats but I need a break and may or may not return to it. They can be painted anytime.




    it was a challenge to build and even more so to get this paint job done..

    what do you think of this...?



    my next project and I can't decide on the paint scheme..Navy, AF - yellow overall, yellow wings white fuselage...or AF blue fuselage and yellow wings or all silver post '44
    or this Navy hodgepodge. Apparently as these trainers went through service life it was not unusual for the fabric and the metal, when it was replaced, to go on in whatever color. Eventually the AF just left them in the silver paint the factory produced them in.
    In this case it looks like this aircraft got all new metal surfaces in the light grey undercoat and the owner has not yet applied his Navy yellow to it

    apparently photobucket has new management and they have decided to temporarily unblock users photos for a limited time while they decide what to charge for their service..I guess NO ONE went for the $399.00 annual fee they imposed last year lol

    ..now they are thinking $19.99 ought to do it - but I'm not paying for anything the other sites give me for free.

    Anyway - the images on page one of this topic have been restored for now - such as they are.

    PT-17 Fuselage under construction - the Guillow kit has a flawed front end situation. I will make some small modifications to mitigate the problem but next time (should there be one) I am not going to use their plastic formed crankcase / fuselage front end but will use balsa and shape a proper part myself. To save time and because here we are however...errr..here we are

    the kit supplied wheels were too skinny - so I made Oreo's using 3/32" thick balsa as the filling...tasty

    I have modified the kit supplied cylinders and pilot. First - the pilot seemed to be in a state of rapture, staring up almost vertically to the sky. I cut out the material under his chin and repositioned his head to look more longitudinally if a bit left-ish.
    The cylinders were made thicker and taller - more to scale - and to accommodate the exhaust pipes, give them room to bend into the collection ring. I will add the spark plugs and wiring as well once they are installed to the crankcase

    the panels are in, as well as some other small details. Much more to do in both 'pits

    the main gear legs are installed..here shown with a pair of oversized wheels for the bush.

    still some cleaning up to do on these legs - then the tail assembly will have to be laid up and infilled for installation. The wings will be built up last, lower wing first so it can be installed and the main aircraft assembly painted.
