That is a possibility I never used the stuff before... was going to try TippEx or the usual putty and rescribe.. Thanks for the info Miggers, I am thinking of displaying the aircraft just before takeoff or landing, how far down would the flaps be?? Thanks Stu Thanks Kev your work is always top notch!! How is your build coming along?. I've hit
