E-whisky from CD-Design
« on: January 17, 2021, 18:32:47 PM »
First build of the year!! :)
An e-Whisky from a French company, CD Design in the Bourgogne region :) design is from the 80s, from famous Jean Louis Coussot, my master!!

This is a 1/2a model simple build. 
Kit came safely packed and include everything you need to do the build. Of course, I had to change a few things to my liking, but more on that at we go. Build time is 8hts, 4hrs build, and I spent another 4 doing the finishing, so not a lot of time really.

I started the build with the wings. Really straight forward. The notches in the TE and LE were going to be a massive pain, until I found out that my camping knife is the exact width! So 2 minutes later, notches done. Real easy! Here are a bunch of photos.
Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!

So next, fuselage, where the work is really!
Had to use my brain for some bits as the parts I have, plan and instructions gave different directions. And for once, I tried to be good and actually follow the instructions  ::) ::)

Anyway, with these photos, this should clear up things. Easy to build anyway, but I found a bit overkill.
Only modification is that I use a piano wire landing gear to stick to the original design. Mind you, the landing gear with the kit is great quality!

Enjoy the self explanatory photos

Now, the fun and time consuming part!
The finishing!
I was going to go all white with a bunch of stickers, but looks like we entered a small competition with the designer!
He went for a French Broussard scheme (Feck! I liked that one!! :'( ), so I went P-51 Mustang then :)
Hommage to the Tuskegee Airmen it is!

Brushed silver covering and red tail. Early scheme for a p-51B named “Kitten”  :)
