  • This was a simple project for Callie, but her work made the plane. This is a Unique Models Texan II. The new Texans are common for Navy and Air Force enthusiasts, but the Army picked up four new D models in 2015 for use as fixed wing trainers and as chase planes during various helicopter evaluations.

    I maidened it yesterday and it flies great, though I worry about how long the LG will last on a grass field. I'd like to see FMS, Flightline or E-Flite do one just a bit larger, say about 1400mm.

    • Another simple solution— got 1/8 scale for a L-4 from Callie.
      Now she almost passes for the L-19.

        • I've used Callie's graphics on two projects and both have turned out amazingly well.

          B-24



          C-47



          I couldn't be happier! The quality is top-notch.

                  • I posted more photos over in the Dynam Waco topic, but these two show the terrific customs Callie did for me. I ordered the Air Hooterville and the custom number from her, and she did fantastic carrying over the design and color scheme of the original numbers to the custom number.

                    • I just bought the Motion RC F4 Phantom II and planning to paint in Blue Angel scheme. I saw Todd Breda's post about his F/A 18 and just wanted to know what paint he used for the Blue Angel Blue.... I see that Model Master paint has Blue Angel blue in a spray can. Would that work well and give a good gloss finish? I have some Liquitex that I can mix, but thought it would also need clear and maybe the easy way is spray can... I have a high quality paint gun and system, as I have been painting wood and fiberglass aircraft for 30 years with automotive paint, so I know how to do that, but have never painted a foam airplane like this...

                      • Hi Tony, welcome to Hobby Squawk! Here's the paint I used for my Freewing F/A-18. Just make sure your initial coats are very light. Once those coats dry you can lay on more and more for complete coverage. I will be painting my Phantom Blue Angel as well, but not until I get bored with the camo livery which I am enjoying at the moment. Good luck and make sure you show us the results!

                          • No problem! For the yellow accents I use Tractor Yellow...I can go take a look at it to give you the full name and brand of it if you would like.
