Thanks, Mark. That confirmed what I was allready thinking what it might be. Can I still put wax after it?

Just brushing dope on the frame so I can stick polyspan down then going to iron on coverite. Trying to get it finished with minimum paint fumes. Can you apply polyspan with polycrylic? they both have poly in the name.

Actually, I won't be using them, Rob forgot to remove the front lugs from the latest milling program.
I have found out that the engine sounds happier without front mounting, propably some deformation or resonance thing.
So, soon I'll take my biggest file and file them off. L

I have been buffing the model parts. I bought this stuff from Brodak; Meguiars Swirl Remover.
What's the correct way to use it? The abrasive effect is allmost homeopathic and it leaves the surfaces sticky. I tried it with my buffing machine and ir sure shines nicely but only untill I wash tve parts with soap water.
Is it more like wax?

Swirl remover is actually a glaze, not really intended to remove sanding scratches or anything. It is basically intended to use as a last step to "fill" the swirl marks left by polishing compound. I use a similar product right before appearance judging. I use a microfiber hand towel/washcloth to apply a small amount and disperce it over the surface, then go back and buff it similar to how you would in fact use wax. There is not really any cutting agents in this product, its mechanism of function is to fill the micro sized marks left by the abrasive in polishing compound thus leaving a more uniform surface to produce better reflections.

Looks like you have an extra set of mounting lugs at front of crank case ? Nice feature.

Clear epoxy would be a sure thing.

1/2A is really the .049 class.
Sometimes 1/2A is stretched to .061.
I have never seen 1/2A stretched to .074, but anything is possible.

I fly a Flying Clown (15 to 29 size) with 200 square inches with a TeeDee .049.
