Jasper Breur Impressive work so far, and a very interesting subject!

Gordon Sørensen The yellow turned out good. One of the hardest colours to get to lay-down evenly.
What are the "details" on the front of the struts.? Not sure what those lines would be for?

airjuneau Thanks Jasper and Gordon. Applying the yellow was a nightmare. I think it took about 8-9 coats and the color ran and created puddles.
I'm really not good at airbrushing and I still need more routine. I'm not sure about the funkion of the cables on the strut either. But I saw them on some reference photos and thought it would be a nice addition.

Tom Beighley The aileron control wires run up along the front of the struts. Great work so far can't wait to see it finished!

Gordon Sørensen Aileron cable runs behind the strut. Was thinking maybe an Antenna co-axial cable for radios for the State Trooper version...
I can't find the reference picture anymore. But I'm pretty sure it showed a black cable on the strut and the aileron cable behind the strut on a yellow cub - Probably some weird custom modification (There is a lot of crazy stuff out there - I even found a cub biplane during my research). Can't tell if the cable supplied an radio antenna or so as the picture just showed the strut viewed from the cockpit.
It's just a test build (I got another cub, I will build at a later stage) - not 100% accurate - just to try things out, improve my skills and learn something new. I made way too much mistakes already. Today it slipped out of my hands, fell on the desk and got damaged (But I could repair it). Hope I will get it ready by the end of the week so I can start something new
