I'm waiting for better flying weather to have some fun with the V5 jets, a little windy here in Idaho.

Now that just looks great , the Hornet appeals to me, always loved that plane in real life too.
What is that you use on the cockpit ?, and how much is it .

I used foam board like the rest of the plane, just took paper off one side and molded it and took little cut out sections to make it look like a cockpit,  then put the mirror like vinyl on it

Is the mirror vinyl on a roll or what, if it is how wide is it, does it go round shapes easy, is it self adhesive, in fact if you have a name I can check it out myself, I did buy some on a sheet but it does not turn corners , it's not very sticky, in plain terms it's a major disappointment and i'd rather just use paint, but your looks pretty good.

Yes it was on a small roll, self adhesive   and you have to cut relief cuts so it covers the curves, just have patience. Same with foam board. I even use a iron to round the edges of the planes wings and control surfaces for less drag,  something I learned from other builders.
