Replicating WW1 German Covering Homemade Lozenge Fabric

Tackling this particular aspect of WW I warbirds can be both challenging and rewarding. It’s really not di cult to do, once you understand the system and have relatively good organizational skills and a healthy dose of patience. Let’s start with some history.

Ready for Takeoff The Real Iron MAN

We don’t this 1:1 “model” qualifies as scale, but it sure is impressive, both on the ground and in the air!

Sand and spinach, sea-foam gray, navy and duck-egg blue … we’ve seen a lot of schemes for WW II Spitfires, but a pink one?

RC Aerobatic Flight Maneuvers Master the Half Cuban-8 with a Half Roll

Invented in the 1930s, the half Cuban-8 was first flown by American barnstormer Len Povey. While attempting a triple avalanche, his entry speed was too high, so he decided to abort the attempt with a simple half roll on the backside of the figure. Thus, the now-common maneuver was born! Today, the half Cuban-8 is […]

How To Cover RC Wings with Fabric 1/4-Scale Sopwith Camel

How To Cover RC Wings with Fabric 1/4-Scale Sopwith Camel

I really enjoy the wing covering process as it impresses me just how much the fabric strengthen and stiffens the wing panels. Just like the fuselage, the first step is to sand the structure smooth and clean up any dust with a tack cloth. Make sure your work surface also is clean and get all […]
