PJ has just finished his Top Gun competition plane which is a Meister Scale long wing Zero. The wingspan is 118 inches and the model is powered with a Quadra 100 swinginga Xoar 26×10 prop.
It has Sierra retracts, and is guided by JR 12x. For the impressive slightly weathered South Pacific finish, PJ used Tamiya paints over a silver base coat. The weathering was done by carefully sanding off the top layers to expose the aluminum color.
The cockpit started out as a basic Zero cockpit kit from Bob Dively Models to which he added a ton more detail too with different things from craft stores and a lot of G-10 material all glued together with Zap products. Flight tests are next and PJ thinks he’ll have a good chance in the Pro-Am Propeller class. Stay tuned
