Thanks for the info on your fuel system. I am setting up mine as a gravity system and will tie the tail down to the ground and check the flow in the next few days. On the paint, I used PPG DP48LF Epoxy Primer and PPG Valstar Acrylic Enamel in Chrome Yellow for the finish coat. The primer is kind of an off white color and looked so good I almost did not paint it yellow. I picked this paint because of cost (less than $700 total) and it has a reputation of being easy to spray.
Yours looks like it's not far from flying.
Mine is a gravity feed each tank can be controlled separately. So far no problems after 27 hours. I did leave a spot in my system where I can easily install a pump and small header tank if necessary. I have noticed a crossflow if both outboard tanks are on at the same time.
Nice paint job,what paint system did you use? I plan to paint mine Cub yellow with dark gray trim using the Stewart paint system.
I hope this is THE summer... but we'll see. I've always said I wouldn't "rush" this project, but it is getting a little silly how long this is taking me. But... I'm still enjoying it, so it all good...
Maybe we'll see you around this summer... Take Care, Ed.
