True,I was using the term generically - and couldn't find the flexible fix (from boats) I wanted. Turns out it really is just a thick paint - and I'm having it all stripped and entirely resprayed. Sop would do it inexpensively and it would just continue peeling otherwise.
Yes the 4 seater looks great and would probably perfect and familiar for those here who get their hours on the Alarus. BUT, I understand that any kit build is an EXP, which means they don't work in club situations (essentially rental).
Mine (a 2003) has a large spot of paint peeling on the upper cowling. I thought it was gel coat but understand it is just a thick paint. I'm thinking of just using some bondo type filler - feather it in - and hit with some white spray. Do you think that will work, or am I going to have it (professionally) spray repaired?
Thanks for the mock-up...-:)
I like the rivet touch!! looks more real. I will try to add a Round Rotec engine.
I took the dimensions on the FWF of the CH750 and the Rorec2800. The round cowling will have to be bigger than the standard cowlings by about 2 inches on the diametre. Should look real nice ....I hope..
I really like the ligthening up of the green on the wing tips... great job. i wasn't sure myself about the wing tips being green ..
We sure are having fun with our planes!!
How about some WWII paint schemes :0
Like maybe a 701 with the flying tiger mouth...
Or a 601 with a P-51 paint scheme?...
There is that one 601, "lil bruiser"; she looks good.
Sorry, I spaced the owners name but its a corvair powered 601.
