1/3 Scale Slingsby Dart 17

Post by stephen spittle » 18 Mar 2015, 10:17

Over the last 14 days the Dart has now been painted and lacquered, and some decals fitted, last Sat another trip round to AEB's to try and fit the now fixed wheel, replacing the retract.
This like some of the other finishing jobs on the Dart was a pain and required more then one pair of hands, some pictures will follow.

I am hoping if the weathers ok but still got to fill in around the fixed wheel and fit power switches, dash might be fitted after still some work to do on it, other then that yes if I can get the test pilot and tug pilot together but not asked yet until I know it will ready.
The other ridea is to ring AEB to set the Dart up before the weekend, Ummm !!, what do you think John.
Other then that hope to also get some GPS in.
You coming over this weekend !!

I let you in to a secret, there spray cans made up for me by a paint shop , and then Lacquer afterwards that gives the paint the nice finish.
