I’m calling this Vintage Model Company BF-109 finished. I hope to fly her next weekend I have a rocket launch this weekend. I know in the fires? Yes. It’s an NAR launch at Lucerne Dry Lake Bed where there are no fires. But I digress.
This is a great kit and I’ll be ordering their Spit next. This model was a joy to build and has great scale lines.
The paper patterns worked well for skinning the nose. I was sceptical. It worked beautifully without having to place balsa between the longerons.
I needed 8 grams of nose weight and what I did was to mix epoxy and buck shot together and using a popsicle stick and carefully dropped the mix through the nose block opening with great success.
Full up weight with a two loop 1/8th braided motor is 1.40 oz. A little heavy but at least she will never fly away from me, 😉
Great build and I highly recommend VMC for their kits, customer service, quick low priced shipping to the us and more.
