Very nice looking. Where did you get the graphics for the Scout? Looks a lot like a PT-19.

That’s what I wanted it to look like. I just made 5” vinyl roundels and vinyl rudder markings. Nothing special. Cub is the same. All vinyl markings.

I have printed them on paper, then paper mache them on, (watered pva glue). And I have spray glued, with a packing tape cover. The results tend to be easy to make, and professional looking

Walmart had a close out of vinyl for $1 each, so I bought several black, white, red and blue. I printed my German crosses on my mini scout and sprayed clear over them. It worked too.

Love your paint jobs. I did the maiden flight on my scratch built Simple Scout a couple of days ago. I am amazed at how great this plane flies. I've done about 10 flights with several different battery sizes...1300mah, 1800mah, and 2200mah. It flies very well with them all. The Scout flies rock steady, but is also very aerobatic. I have quite a few expensive E-Flite planes with SAFE and AS3X. This simple Dollar Tree foamboard plane with a basic 6 channel receiver is one of the most fun planes I have flown.
