Here's the old lady. She is a Dominik Haegele Edition SDX with a Dominik Special Edition O.S. 55 Hyper. Stored her for about seven years before returning to service flies as good as the last time. She will be serving me for many more years.

A little spiffing up

So after flying her a bit, I decided to spiff her up. First I trimmed the canopy. I got a bit careless and the wind blew it and bumped the nose on the floor and fractured the plastic. Can anyone recommend a good adhesive or solvent to repair the fracture? I tried pvc pipe solvent but it doesn't work. I settled for Shoe Goo.

Next was the horizontal fin. The SDX doesn't have one so I got one from a T-Rex 600 and after some trimming with a Dremel, it fit nicely!

Locally from Lil's. Cosmo Black Special. Parts are also readily available or can be ordered. I also order directly from Hirobo, Mr Kobayashi. Finally, I travel a lot for work so I get from the shops in Akihabara, Osaka, Hongkong, Seoul.

Applying decals, repairing the cabin

I repaired some cracks in the cabin that developed because of the brittle plastic due to age. I used the excess plastic material after cutting out the windshield and some Shoe Goo. Then I applied the decals. Here is how she looks after:
