With a hefty 2lbs of lead in the front, the AUW comes out at about 21lbs. I have a fully drawn set of plans for this model.

At last! Finally, a chance to fly the Gull on a hill. Needless to say, despite the windy conditions, the lift died and an emergency landing had to be performed. :roll:

Hi Chris

A little late, but what paint do you use? How do you apply it?

Don't feel bad about the non-response inasmuch as a fair response might start with the purchase of Supplied Air Respirator System such as this one.

Word on the street is that 2K paint is highly toxic.
