Does anybody have any ideas on how or what the factory fuselage painters are using to get those fine black panel lines? I've seen them on a few factory painted fuselages and my guess is it's some kind of fine black marking pen that they then clear coat over.

I'm not at all sure what the manufacturers use to create their panel lines. You can use a panel line pen with a straight edge and possibly a curved template (from an art store) to mark your own. Overcoat the lines with a clear fuel resistant paint.

That is looking like a real sweetheart.

I have painted many sets of blades for my scale helis over the years when I find blades of which I like the flying characteristics. I can really understand why you like those R/T FAI type of blades for your Squirrel.

You will find these grey/silver Funkeys are not just well priced, but also are great for scale flying.

Not quite as crisp as the RT's (but you are not doing any FAI aerobatics in scale anyway) but their auto characteristics are also very good.

I use them on my Bell 47. The color is more scale like out of the box. If you want to see a video of them in the auto etc. PM me and I can send you the youtube link.

Phil did they stop selling the 550 mm of this type of blade?

Do you mean this one:

If so, they are still in production and due to price and performance I am sure it is one of their best selling blades.

or this one:

Top performance and top price also. But as you can see, not the best colouring for scale looks.

CNF5533. I had heard that they were discontinued but I guess they were wrong. Yes you're quite right ... the colour on the others are a little off.

Thank you Phil.
