FT what brand and type of paint are you using for depron? Will it work with the grey stuff?

Hi Combatevolved, I use Krylon Short Cuts aerosol spray paint on my Model Plane Foam builds. It will work fine on the grey Depron I'm sure as it says on the label it's for Craft Foam. It probably won't be as brilliant on the darker grey foam as it is on white foam. I'd say do a test on some scrap foam before committing it to your model. Wildthing uses the grey Depron and I'm sure he will have some tips for you. Happy building!
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

, the grey is almost nice as is, just add decals and stripes and away you go. I have used the good old rattle can paints and just misting it on from a distance same as you would on the white foam.

First I want to thank Bimo for modifying the EDF Typhoon to the rear mounted pusher with cambered wing version. I bugged him for a couple of months for the conversion and he finally came through and made it a reality. I have the RCP Euro and absolutely loved the flying characteristics of it (very agile and floaty at the same time) and wanted the more scale version of PI's EDF design. I purchased the plans but decided I didn't have the desire to build an EDF with the complexity and cost of higher priced components and shorter flying time. So now I have finished the new G1R and couldn't be happier.

It's constructed out of MPF with mixture of CF tubes and skewers for support. I've got the standard Turnigy 2200 kv motor and a Hobbywing Skywalker 40A esc. I didn't like how the nose came out so I chopped it off just forward of the cockpit and made a laminated nose that came out real nice and smooth. I also made a laminated cockpit which I like a lot. The AUW is 22 oz's. I went with a German version of the Euro and chose the 10 year anniversary markings. The red paint isn't the standard color as I wanted something a little flashier than the grey paint of the original. Can't get much flashier than fire engine red! She is going to be a super floater with that delta wing! Hope you all like it and again, thank you very much Bimo for doing this as a gift to me. You're the best my friend!

Thanks a lot Billy, I appreciate your kind words buddy. One thing I did different on this one was brushing on a coat of Minwax Polycrylic water based polyurethane before painting with the red. It made a big difference on the final paint job. It hides the places where the lightweight spackling is used to fill in the cracks. It makes a more even finish. Good stuff!

Wow! Got to keep that min wax polycrylic in mind. If the hospitals ever get through with me!!

Brilliant built, FlyteTime! The airfoil will surely top up the excitements you'll get with the Eurofighter. So sorry for the late post as I've been totally consumed by work these days. Have you had the maiden yet there, FlyteTime? The weather in my hometown hasn't been friendly but it doesn't benefit any to me as I couldn't fly for weeks as well.

It's great to see you back online Bimo! I tried my best to do you justice on the Typhoon. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, . But, it's all about priorities right? Man, I haven't flow anything in some time as I've been busy with doctor's appointments, tests and a little bit of home repair projects. I HAVE to get out there and have fun with the other aspect of scratchbuilding, i.e., flying these darn things. Video at 11 one day soon I hope!

Thanks FT Well, I guess you're right. I feel dull already for not flying/building for almost a month

I believe I would represent us all in this forum, we're wishing you all the best with the transplantation, FT. Also speedy recovery after We're surely living on different places thousands of miles away from each other, but it won't stop me and my family from thinking of you and have good thoughts and wishes.

Stay well, my friend
