  Hey Michael,
 I think I have the same kit. How long have you had yours?

Filled, sanded, covered and the black instrument panel installed.

Next- clean the canopy and attach it.

Sorry, that should read Red Eagle, not Red Arrow.

I have done some gluing and sanding...these pieces are Tiny!
The process of building is reminiscent of the Red Arrow that I built a few years ago...I should repair that glider one of these years.  This little kit should provide the inspiration.

Have been quietly working away. The wing fiberglassing is finished . I had to redo one panel as I was not satisfied with the way it looked. I am using quite light glass, probably 1/2 ounce, and it is harder to work with than heavier glass I find. The centre joint of the wing was re enforced with an 8 inch wide strip of 2 ounce material. With the wing saddle and the fillets being the last bits to finish, I will move on to glassing the fuse. After the glass and sanding I run into a problem, because I have no glazing compound that I use to fill any uneven spots that show up after a coat of primer. It comes from Canadian Tire and I am not going to go there just to get it. I also have no primer paint so the final finish may have to wait until after we get past this.
Stay safe everyone


Rob  What kind of filler or glazing compound are you using? You could order on line from CTC and pick up, as they are doing that.
What kind of rattle can primer are you using, Rust-oleum Painters Touch is good in white. There is a thicker primer that Napa Auto Parts sell but it is grey. Just spray on and use water sand paper to smooth out. It will fill all the little dents and nicks.

I liked the idea but the product is made by a company in Texas, and that place has closed down due to the Virus. There was another source at Wowplanes, but his website does not allow ordering anymore. I found in a forum somewhere that his wife was quite ill and that was a post from a couple of years ago. I would like to try it someday though.

Hey Rob,  The Chipmunk is looking great!

What happened to your idea of trying the Liquid Sheeting?
