            I usually just tell her which model I'm working with and she sends the correct scale automatically.

            The Eflite FW190 is approximately 1:7 scale
            I made my own waterslide or painted graphics, and my friend did the Russian front winter camo using a combination of some of mine and Callie's.

              • Does anyone have a guide for the nomenclature placement? Thanks!

                • How you guys remove the old decals without ruining the surface.

                  • That's not possible completely. It will leave an outline where the decal was. If your repainting, I use packing tape or paint over them.

                        I did two things to my EFlite 190, to stop the Elevator pushrod from flexing.

                        First, I wedged a piece of foam up against the pushrod tube inside the fuselage. The pushrod still wanted to bend, so I replaced the wimpy stock pushrod with a beefier pushrod. I used a 2-56 rod for my pushrod. It is almost too fat for the pushrod tube, but it’s worked fine for me for over 60 flights.

                          I remove the decal. I've had bad luck with factoring over some decals. Once removed, feather in an acrylic paint to act as a primer and level the affected area. Usually I use a Vallejo white. I just add it until I get it feeling smooth across the transition. I rarely try to make it perfect because usually a new decal is going where the old one was and this hides most flaws
