            Wow. I sent Mike an email on his site, anxious to find out if he can help me. It’s under construction as you said and therefore confusing, but if you read the “Who we are” page, I think you really hit the jackpot Sam!
            Thank you so much! Click image for larger version

            • So I'm thinking this is the livery I want to go with. Stock gloss covering will work with this and I think Marines is a little more realistic than Navy. No offense intended to the squids. Does anyone know if Callies decals are pliable enough to wrap the sharks mouth around the nose as depicted?

              • I can speak for Callie on the graphics, yes. I'll post a pic tonight of a special order I just applied as of last night. Had to get creative to split in to smaller workable sections but I'll let the pic speak for itself.

ID:	199632 Okay OV-10, here's some photos of the Profly and the Uravich planes. I'm slowly getting it together. If any of you are considering using the ESCs from the Freewing A-10,they work perfect and have plenty of wire to go to the fuselage. There's at least 10 inches of wire coming through the fuselage to hook up to the batteries. The BEC that comes with it also has plenty of wire. Click image for larger version

                    • Here are several pics of my current project FW L39 with Callie graphics. As you can see this is more intricate than the mouth you wish to place on the Bronco so yours should be an easier placement. I did have to cut this into several pieces to be able to work it and you may have better results doing same depending on the curvature where it goes.
                      IT is very doable, just takes a little time to work it down.

                      • Nice comparisons Rosytime I had not doubt that the FW A-10 ESC setup would work on this...........am already using it on an 92 inch w/s ASM A-26.

                            • Are they resin cast or 3D printed? Either way, what's the approximate wall thickness?

                                Resin ( not sure about the thickness ) and they come painted which I was happy about. SAM51401 if your working with Mike Hicks on these have him shrink it down a tad they seemed a bit big IMO.

                                  Being they are cast, shrinking wont be possible like if 3D printed. It’s nice having that type of control as I did that also on a set of pilots for my L39. I did a 10% reduction and maybe shrank it a little to much. Still learning the ins and outs on that.

                                    Cool, well I'm in for a couple.

                                    • I ordered two 1 / 7th scale full body Bronco pilots and two 1 / 9th scale for my Uravich Bronco. They where $22 each $8 for shipping. Only $96 total for four Marine pilots! Can’t wait to get them! Michael says he will be back open after July Fourth.

                                      • Callie graphics is now selling the OV 10 livery in 1/7 scale. I had e-mailed her about that scale and she updated her website. And does anybody know if the other livery is for this color scheme also. I have seen other OV 10s with all gray paint.

                                        • I forgot to add that I wired up all my servos today and started to run all the extensions. I will have 6 servo connections in one boom and five in the other. This is in addition to the battery leads coming from each boom. A wiring nightmare if you don't bundle them up and label them. I also were unable to find a 2.25 three bladed spinner other than carbon fiber. When I finally get it in the air and figure out which props I'm going to use, it will have no spinners at first. I guess I'll have to get some custom made for that final touch. The other issue I have mentioned before is that the landing gear is much too stiff as it comes in the kit. I'll have to see about changing the springs so they get some kind of movement. If you haven't checked the gear yet, do so and you'll see how they are way too stiff.
