Silver FT spitfire

#1
Hi guys!,

Im from Norway and new to the hobby.
I scratch built this ft Spitfire. Covered in silver film that i got from a label company.
It has not maisen yet, i started flying a month ago so need to practice on 4 ch first.

What do you think of it?
Btw, this was my second build so far. I have only built the simple cub before this. I must say, building the planes have been nothing but fun! 0DE48CC1-AC74-4C7B-B8D5-C4EB3A96E1E9.jpeg 4C42A8B3-7377-43BF-8B35-021B3C3A71E1.jpeg 37CC206A-908A-454A-AADD-683FD53D0987.jpeg F068AF9A-D343-480E-9E8B-8F3EC033B38E.jpeg

It looks amazing o_O, just beware, all that silver can mess with your radio signal, be sure to keep your antennas in the right places and it’ll be fine, (just gonna have to wait for someone who knows more than me to tell what the right antenna placement is ;)).

Love this!! What paint did you use to get it to shine. Every silver paint I've used is dull looking.

Becaus its covering film (really thing) it won't make much of a difference, because its not actual silver.

This is a plastic film that they use when making labels for products. I got it from a company that produces labels, so this is what the film looks like before the printing goes on. It is super thin. Light weight and has glue to it, like a label.

Ah! It’s plastic not aluminum, I just figured it was aluminum tape, disregard my first post then :). Just don’t disregard the part about your plane looking amazing 😉.

Absolutely gorgeous! I'm especially impressed by the clean cockpit you made!
Thank you. The canopy is made from lamination for paper. I printer out and cut out the black «frame» from a drawing that a guy here on the forum had made. Cant find the thread anymore. And then put it into the lamination pouch and cut out. Taped on the fusealage. Sorry about the bad english🤪
