Hi Chris

What do you do to "prime" the HK film before painting.

Thanks for the kind words, Terry...hopefully, normal service will be resumed some time next year ;)

Yes, John, all the flying surfaces are film covered with film providing the trim colour as well... (The fuz is Solartexed and 2-pack painted)

The plan has been donated to the forum...You can get a copy from there, or directly from me, where I can also provide the build pics in convenient digital folders...

Don't be fooled, Vincent, this model first flew back at the end of 2018... It comes under the heading: 'Here's one I made earlier' ;)
