    Re: Build Thread - H.O.B. Extra 300L

    Its been a long time since I covered a plane and I used to be very bad at it. Now with a little more patience and a new covering iron in hand I started with some easy bits which turned out okay.

    After the standard grey primer interior I followed Scott's recommendation and fitted the canopy with 100% Glue. Thanks for the tip it worked out great!

    DuBro charge port and power switch. I've never used this one before, I hope it works well.

    On to the tailwheel and tail feathers. I'm using the DuBro hardware that cam with the kit. The controls and smaller and throws much shorter than more modern 3D ships that's for sure. Very scale...

    Shaping up, I used lots of 60 grit sandpaper for this, with a large sander and a homemade 2"x1" sanding block with handle.

    This was a simple fix. I used 1/8" balsa sheeting. On to the lower fairing the more forming/sanding.

    Re: Build Thread - H.O.B. Extra 300L

    This is what I need to fix: It should be easy because I have the plywood that was removed so I can just glue it back then build the balsa back up in the front as well. I plan to leave a hole the size...

    Some of this finishing work and shaping/profiling is new to me. I've learned the value of shaving wood with a knife and keeping sanding to a minimum.

    Good evening,

    I've made a little progress but not as much as I'd like. Continuing with the fuselage.

    After gluing the lazer rod tube in place I was able to sheet the bottom of the fuselage. Pretty straight forward.

    That was quick and easy...except I forgot to glue in the washer inside the wing! I had to pull up one of the bottom wing skins and redo it again. All done now.
