According to what Jim was saying, his son showed him that very same Farside cartoon and told him he couldn't make it fly. Not one to be told he can't, the challenge was accepted, and now we have the ACME Spitfire.And what did he tell you? I'd like to hear the story.
Now that's ambitious!Be fun to speedbuild these some morning...
A great man, I'm sure!my father worked the B52s at Castle many years ago
What about Trim Monokote? Would that work, or add too much weight to it?I used some of the Rustoleum metallic chrome recently, and it tends to flake off with the tape, even after I thought it had totally cured for a couple of days. I think you might have better luck with the metallic silver. Or, maybe try to paint a clear-coat on top of the metallic before you mask for another trim color.
(hcmbanjo talked about this on his model rocket building blog recently regarding metallic chrome paints and masking over them, which I read about right after I discovered the problem first hand myself.)
